New signings Jorginho and Kepa Arrizabalaga are expected to feature, though Sarri was hesitant to confirm whether his new world record stopper would make his debut at the John Smith’s stadium.

Matteo Kovacic meanwhile will need more time before making his first Chelsea appearance as he made it all the way to the World Cup final with Croatia.

Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante are not likely to return to Maurizio Sarri ‘s side straight away, having only played for the first time in pre-season as substitutes on Tuesday
