Midfield duo Mason Mount and Jorginho are both ruled out through suspension which has opened the door for both N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic to come in.
Elsewhere, Spanish full-back Marcos Alonso starts once again, presumably forming part of a back five which also includes Cesar Azpilecueta, Reece James, Antonio Rudiger and Kurt Zouma.
For Atletico, right-back Kieran Trippier is recalled with the rest of the side making up their familiar 4-4-2 formation.
