SEVILLA TEAM NEWS
Team to play Chelsea: Bounou, Navas, Gomez, Carlos, Acuna, Rakitic, Fernando, Gudelj, Suso, De Jong, Ocampos.
Subs: Vaclic, Rekik, Jordan, Munir, Oscar Rodriguez, En-Nesyri, Escudero, Torres, Vazquez, Fernandez.
After both sides take the knee, Werner takes the first kick-off to get things started.
CORNER! Here’s a first corner of the night and its a strong header away from Silva clears Suso’s delivery well.
Jorginho, plays the ball beyond Ocampos with his first touch but gives it straight to the forward, and its an early booking for the captain.
James denies Ocampos down the left, using his pace and strength to shoulder barge him into taking the ball out of play.
Jorginho loses track of Ocampos completely from a throw-in, but as it is they clear.
James chases De Jong all the way to the Sevilla left-back position where he looks likely to earn a win an opportunity to cross after outmuscling the forward, but is then knocked to ground by him in response.
SUB! Gomez’s game is over, and he’s off. Jordan, comes on for him and slots into the middle of the park…
A free-kick from Rakitic deep on the right is cleared away, before Ocampos takes it forward towards Acuna on the left and behind for a goal kick.
Acuna gets himself in the book for pulling back Pulisic inside the Chelsea half.

HT: CHELSEA 0-0 SEVILLA
We’re back underway for the second half here.
Zouma gets his head to it and does get some direction on his effort this time, for a goal kick as it bounces off his back and miles off.
SUB! Here’s our first change of the night. Suso is subbed for Torres.
SUB! Ziyech comes on for Mount. In on the right, Pulisic to stay over on the left.
SUB! Jorginho heads to the bench with Kovacic taking his place and Kante now sporting the captain’s armband.
Ziyech has space on the right behind Acuna when Kante finds him as Chelsea attack.
SUBS! There’s two more changes on the way for Sevilla – with two attacking changes on the way. Versatile midfielder Vazquez and En-Nesyri head on for De Jong.
Rakitic also heads for the bench. That might relieve Kante too!
There will be three minutes of added-on time..
