What is the team news?

In an unusually quiet transfer window for Chelsea, the marque signing has been that of Brazilian midfielder, Jorginho from Napoli for £57 million.

Veteran goalkeeper Robert Green has also been signed on a free transfer, as back-up to Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero.

Sarri has also been frustrated in his search for a new striker, with top target Gonzalo Higuian opting to make a one-year loan switch to AC Milan.

Lyon boss Bruno Genesio has sought to add quantity to the Ligue 1 club, with the notable signing of central-midfielder Tanguy Ndombele for £7.1 million being their biggest piece of business, thus far.
