Football: Chelsea announce full squad for the game against Krasnodar (Read In Detail).
Chelsea have landed in Russia as they get set to take on Krasnodar in their second Group E encounter of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, October 28. The Blues are coming off the back of a 0-0 draw against rivals Manchester United in the Premier League, and also drew goalless with Sevilla in their opening Group E encounter. Krasnodar drew as well, playing out a 1-1 draw with French side Stade Rennes in the other opening Group E encounter.
The 22 man squad that is set to prosecute the game has landed in Krasnodar, as they prepare for the showdown. Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizibalaga remains out, as a shoulder injury which kept him out of the game against Manchester United on Saturday, keeps him out once again. Meanwhile, Marcos Alonso will serve the last of his three match ban which he acquired last season. Thiago Silva is also out, as he didn’t travel with the team.
