The west London club have already signed Mykhailo Mudryk in a €70m deal from Shakthar Donetsk as well as Joao Felix on loan from Atletico Madrid in this window.

Edouard Mendy has fallen out of favour under Potter, with Kepa Arrizabalaga, the world's most expensive goalkeeper, the man preferred in between the sticks.

Reece James and Ben Chilwell have seldom been fit enough to start many games together, but they remain the first-choice full-back pairing at Stamford Bridge.

Wesley Fofana has also had his injury woes, while Kalidou Koulibaly has been underwhelming, so Benoit Badiashile will partner Thiago Silva in the centre of defence.

Mateo Kovacic has emerged as Chelsea's best midfielder over the past 18 months and N'Golo Kante is back in training after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Joao Felix can play as an attacking midfielder once he returns from suspension, with Mason Mount dropping to the bench.

New signing Noni Madueke will take up the right-wing position, with Mudryk likely to take his place on the left.

Kai Havertz will remain up front, with Armando Broja injured and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looking a poor piece of business.
