Chelsea’s new players are finding their feet and right now ready to prove themselves when they file out against Southampton in the Premier League tie on Saturday.
Southampton have won their past two games after a sticky start to the season.
Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell is fit despite withdrawing from England duty, but Edouard Mendy misses out after injuring his thigh in training with Senegal.
Thiago Silva will be rested, while Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech could both feature, with the latter in contention for the first time.
Theo Walcott could play his first game for Southampton since 2006 after rejoining the club on loan.
Another new signing, Ibrahima Diallo, is available for his debut.
Moussa Djenepo and Mohammed Salisu are both ruled out, while Stuart Armstrong will not be considered, although he is back in training after a period of self-isolation following a positive coronavirus test.
