TEAM NEWS CONFIRMED

In arguably the biggest match of Chelsea’s season so far, the Blues take on Barcelona at the Nou Camp, a stadium that has given us some unforgettable memories.

With the Premier League title virtually impossible to defend, the Champions League is the greatest trophy Chelsea can put in the trophy cabinet this season.

After a spiriting performance against the Spanish giants in the second leg, the result was dampening to say the least, the aggregate score being 1-1 with Barcelona earning a crucial away goal.

Despite the advantage Ernesto Valverde’s men hold, the tie is still delicately poised and there’s still plenty of belief we can advance to the quarter-finals of this competition.

With so much speculation over team selection, Antonio Conte has decided to stay put with Oliver Giroud upfront, leaving Eden Hazard in his more favoured position on the wing. Meanwhile, Antonio Rudiger comes in for Gary Cahill at the back in a 3-4-3 formation.

Here’s how both sides line-up for tonight’s encounter:
