Chelsea vs. Sevilla | Confirmed Lineups For Both Teams Out

Chelsea hosts Sevilla as the Blues kick off their Champions League campaign.

The Blues kick off its 2020/21 Champions League campaign with one of its toughest ties.

Sevilla, the defending Europa League champion, comes to Stamford Bridge looking to spoil the Blues’ hopes to win the group.

Frank Lampard endured a difficult campaign in Europe last season as Chelsea scraped through their group before losing 7-1 on aggregate to eventual champions Bayern Munich in the round of 16.

But the Blues boss has a very different side this campaign after spending big in the summer transfer window.

The experienced Thiago Silva has been brought in while Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech all have European pedigree.

It's been a slow start to the new season though for Chelsea having won just two of their opening five Premier League games.

They have a chance to bounce back from last weekend's disappointing 3-3 draw with Southampton this evening though as they take on Sevilla in the Champions League.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Mendy, James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Havertz, Pulisic, Werner

Sevilla XI (4-3-3): Bono, Navas, Diego Carlos, Sergi Gomez, Acuna, Rakitic, Gudelj, Fernando, Suso, Ocampos, De Jong
