The Blues will be without N'Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Reece James and Christian Pulisic who are ruled out through a mixture of injuries and COVID-19 related issues.

Jorginho refused to comment on Kante's decision against being vaccinated.

Chelsea boss Tuchel also weighed in on the strengths of Juventus as he said: "They are so experienced, such a big club with so much experience in the Champions League. 

"They will enjoy it. It’s a different competition. They had some troubles, a rough start according to their results but they were very convincing in the Champions League. You never know if sometimes the players are missing. The ones that come in want to show they are reliable, it is the same for us. We play Juventus at Juventus, it is a no brainer. It demands respect. We need to refocus, regroup and face the tough challenge with positive energy to bounce back after our defeat."
