From Spain to South West London in a matter of days, Chelsea must now turn their focus to overcoming Fulham in the Premier League tomorrow.
Thomas Tuchel’s team spent a lot of energy during the 1-1 Champions League draw with Real Madrid on Tuesday.
One eye will firmly be on the second leg to be played next week, meaning a full-strength squad must be available.
Expect plenty of changes to the Blues XI, but don’t anticipate a drop in quality.
Edouard Mendy stays between the sticks. Antonio Rudiger also remains at centre-back.
He could be joined by Kurt Zouma and Cesar Azpilicueta, in place of Thiago Silva and Andreas Christensen.
Azpilicueta featured at wing-back against Madrid, yet was removed in the second half to save some of his legs for the weekend.
Into that wing-back role goes Reece James, with Marcos Alonso recalled on the opposite flank.
The £24m (Sky Sports) Spaniard has been forced to watch on whilst Ben Chilwell excels in that position and will have to impress Tuchel if he is to tie down a spot.
In between the two wing-backs is Jorginho and N’Golo Kante.
Chelsea don’t really have many other choices in midfield, as Mateo Kovacic continues to recover from a hamstring problem.
Billy Gilmour is an option, however Tuchel is yet to trust him a league game, so it would be unlikely he alters that process now.
Wholesale changes should arise in attack.
Out go Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner, the 25-year-old fresh from his glorious European miss in mid-week.
In their place, Hakim Ziyech as well as surprise selections for Callum Hudson-Odoi and Oliver Giroud; the latter hasn’t started a top-flight match since February.
Chelsea Predicted XI vs Fulham: Mendy; Rudiger, Zouma, Azpilicueta; James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Ziyech, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi
