Only Kepa didn’t get to feature from the team sheet.

Reporter Adam Newson has given his take on what tomorrow’s team may most likely look like, and we agree with him.

Newson tweeted: “Taken a guess at the Chelsea team for tomorrow morning (working on the basis those who came off the bench tonight won’t start).

“Kepa; Chalobah, Ampadu, Sarr; Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Gallagher, Chilwell; Ziyech, Broja, Pulisic

“We’ll see if I’m still in Thomas Tuchel’s head.”
