Thomas Tuchel made four changes in his country to face Manchester United in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge from the country defeated by Atletico Madrid in the middle of last week.
Hakim Ziyech,N'Golo Kante and Ben Chillwell started against United,who have not lost far from home in the Premier League this season.Edouard Mendy maintains his place at the door and ranks behind the five regular defenders.
Callum Hudson-Odoi will defend his seat from midweek along with Antonio Rüdiger,Cesar Aspilicueta, Andreas Christensen and back Chillwell.Thiago Silva is still in full recovery from a thigh injury and is not in the squad.
Midfielders Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic were separated by Kante,who joined the Italian to work with Kovacic and start his second Premier League game since Tuchel took office.Mason Mount was there from the start, as would be expected in midfield with Kante and Kovacic
Midweek provisional winner Olivier Giroud is favored over Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner has been knocked out when Ziyech takes his place.This interrupts a streak of five consecutive league games for Werner,who start every Premier League game after Tuchel's first against Wolves in January.
