Team News

New Chelsea boss Graham Potter will have to contend with some injury issues. Edouard Mendy was struck in the ribs in Chelsea’s 2-1 win against London rivals West Ham, and missed the game in Croatia. It’s unclear if he will be fit for the game against Salzburg.

N’Golo Kante is also still a doubt after the hamstring injury he sustained in the home draw against Tottenham earlier in the season. On 26 August, former boss, Thomas Tuchel said, in regard to Kante’s injury ‘we are talking about weeks’.

Trevor Chalobah may return. He sustained an injury against Leicester and was an unused substitute in the games against West Ham and Zagreb.
