Can Thomas Tuchel get his players to ignore the European Super League controversy and focus on football against Brighton at Stamford Bridge tonight?

Andreas Christensen will be fit for Chelsea as the Denmark defender has recovered from a muscle problem to be available.

Midfielder Mateo Kovacic remains sidelined with hamstring trouble, while defender Thiago Silva could take a seat on the bench after featuring twice last week.

Striker Aaron Connolly could return to Brighton’s squad following a foot injury.

Should return the starting line-up after missing their FA Cup against Man City. Mendy has kept 13 clean sheets in 17 games for the London side since the start of January.

The Republic of Ireland international has not featured since the 1-0 defeat to West Brom on February 27 but has trained freely during the past week.
