Chelsea are back after a two-week break, and will need to find our rhythm and verve quickly as a congested and challenging schedule looms. First up are Villa, who may be
mid-table, but should not be taken lightly.
Chelsea also have a chance to move up in the table thanks to Spursâ€™ 3-0 humbling by Conor Gallagherâ€™s Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Tuchel has shuffled his cards thanks to the exertions of many during the break, which means that SaÃºl gets his debut, CHO starts at wing-back, and Marcos Alonso is the captain. Thiago Silva is eligible and starts as well, while thereâ€™s a Ross Barkley on the bench, too!
Here we go!
