6. Central Midfield: Moises Caicedo (Ecuador)

Cesare Casedei and Andrey Santos have been recalled from their respective loans. However Casedei is cup tied and Santos is away on International duty. This means that we may not get to see any new faces feature in midfield.

7. Central Midfield: Enzo Fernandez (Argentina)

Enzo Fernandez dropped his best performance of the season against Fulham after being heavily criticized in recent times. It's been a year in Chelsea blue and we're blessed to have him; hoping that he puts on a decisive display tomorrow.

8. Central Attacking Midfield: Conor Gallagher (England)

As mentioned by Joe Cole, Conor Gallagher has now become the face of the club. His status at the club has gone up considerably after being handed the captain's armband and the Englishman has done justice. The tenacious midfielder will be crucial in leading tomorrow's comeback trail.
