The trio may have been given the match off as the Blues have already qualified from their group in first place. However, if there were any injuries being carried by the players it would be very detrimental to the Stamford Bridge outfit.
All three have been key members of the team that has put together a great run of form that has resulted in their qualification from the group stage, as well as placing them three points clear at the top of the Premier League.
Although the match doesn’t matter to Jose Mourinho’s side, opponents Sporting Lisbon are in a battle with Schalke to qualify in second place. They need at least a draw to guarantee they’re going through.
The Blues lost their first game in all competitions this campaign on Saturday in a 2-1 loss to Newcastle United. They will be hoping for a win mid-week in order to get back in to winning ways. Their next match that matters is against Hull City on Saturday.
