Kai Havertz added to Chelsea’s injury concerns ahead of tonight’s Champions League showdown with Juventus.

Romelu Lukaku also faced late checks to see if he will be allowed to make the bench following an ankle injury - and starts on the bench.

But Havertz, who has been Chelsea’s only recognised striker in the absence of Lukaku and Timo Werner in recent weeks, misses out due to a hamstring issue.

Werner was, at least, in contention to start after recovering from his own hamstring issues, but Christian Pulisic gets the nod to start up front.

Jorginho was cleared to play after limping out of Saturday’s 3-0 win against Leicester.

Mateo Kovacic is the only other absentee, with the midfielder still recovering from a hamstring problem.

Chelsea would go level on points with Juventus at the top of Group H with a win tonight.

Chelsea XI: Mendy; Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Ziyech, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi.

Subs: Kepa, Bettinelli, Alonso, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Sarr, Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Saul, Mount, Lukaku, Werner.

Juventus XI: Szczesny; Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Sandro; Bentancur, McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot; Chiesa, Morata.

Subs: Arthur, Dybala, Kean, Pinsoglio, Rugani, Perin, Kulusevski, De Winter.
