Chelsea’s line up to take on Qarabag tonight has been released, with big news on David Luiz and Alvaro Morata for the Blues’ return to Champions League duty.
Luiz was notably axed by Antonio Conte before the international break, with Andreas Christensen filling in admirably in defence in the two matches they’ve played without him.
However, the Brazil international is now back in the Blues fold, returning to the first XI at the expense of Christensen tonight.
Morata is another big name left out, with Eden Hazard seemingly playing in a false nine role up front.
Unsurprisingly, Chelsea fans are delighted to see the popular Luiz make his comeback, but are a little puzzled as to why Morata is not playing…
