Christian Pulisic starts for Chelsea against Barcelona today, as do Kepa Arrizabalaga and Tammy Abraham.

That pair missed the Kawasaki Frontale friendly on Friday through illness but are both selected from the off by Frank Lampard. Pulisic came off the bench in our first friendly in Japan.

Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic are the two in front of the defence, with Mason Mount flanked by Pedro and Pulisic in support of Abraham up front.

Chelsea are expected to line up in the following 4-2-3-1 formation:

Kepa; Azpilicueta (c), Christensen, David Luiz, Emerson; Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Mount, Pulisic; Abraham.

Subs: Caballero, Cumming, Zouma, Tomori, Zappacosta, Alonso, Drinkwater, Barkley, Bakayoko, Kenedy, Palmer, Batshuayi, Giroud.

Antoine Griezmann makes his first appearance in a Barcelona shirt. Their line-up is as follows:

Ter Stegen, Pique, Sergio, Riqui Puig, Dembele, Busquets, Griezmann, Jordi Alba, Roberto, Umiti, Collado.
