Venue And Kick-Off Time
Chelsea will welcome Dinamo Zagreb at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday by 21:00 WAT in the UEFA Champions League.
The Blues are currently at the top of group E with 10 points from 5 games and at least a draw tomorrow will see them finish at the top of the group.
Dinamo Zagreb will go into this encounter as the clear underdogs, having managed just a single win in their last six matches in all competitions.
The Croats sit at the bottom of the table in group E with just 4 points from 5 matches and are in danger of losing out on a ticket to the Europa League.
They are currently sitting two points behind RB Salzburg in the group and a win over Chelsea could see them secure a spot in the Europa League, but only if AC Milan beat RB Salzburg.
Graham Potter is expected to line up with Cesare Azpilicueta, Trevoh Chalobah and Marc Cucurella at the back.
While in the midfield Denis Zakaria is expected to come in for the injured Matteo Kovacic.
Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja are expected to come in place of Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Meanwhile N’Golo Kante, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Matteo Kovacic and Kepa Arrizabalaga will be on the sidelines through injuries.
Possible Formation (3-4-2-1)
Potential Starting XI: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Cucurella; Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Zakaria, Chilwell; Ziyech, Pulisic; Broja.

Possible Formation (3-5-2)
Potential Starting XI: Livakovic; Ristovski, Sutalo, Peric; Moharrami, Ademi, Misic, Ivanusec, Ljubicic; Orsic, Petkovic
