Chelsea will be looking to seal European supremacy when they go head-to-head with Manchester City for the Champions League crown tonight.
The Blues, who finished their Premier League campaign with a defeat on Sunday afternoon, losing 2-1 to Aston Villa at Villa Park, flew out to Portugal on Thursday ahead of putting the finishing touches to their preparations.
In the build-up to the final, which will see two English sides go head-to-head for the biggest prize in European club football for the second time in three seasons, Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel was sweating over the availability of both goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and midfield enforcer N’Golo Kante.
Mendy was forced off at half-time against Villa on Sunday afternoon, whilst Kante missed the clash with Dean Smith’s side altogether because of an ongoing hamstring complaint. However, the pair were both confirmed in the travelling squad and trained with the rest of the team ahead of the game.
No major surprises were sprung by Tuchel in the 25, with no senior figures missing out through injury or suspension. Tammy Abraham, whose future at Stamford Bridge is currently up in the air, has been included.
Full Chelsea squad confirmed to face Manchester City:
Goalkeepers: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Edouard Mendy & Willy Caballero.
Midfielders: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Billy Gilmour, Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Faustino Anjorin & Jorginho.
Strikers: Tammy Abraham, Timo Werner & Olivier Giroud.
