Chelsea begin their 2020/21 Champions League campaign on Tuesday evening, as they take on 2019/20 Europa League winners Sevilla at Stamford Bridge.
With new signing Edouard Mendy injured and Kepa Arrizabalaga having put in an unconvincing performance against Southampton in the Premier League at the weekend, Willy Caballero could start against Sevilla on Tuesday.
Thiago Silva is likely to return to the starting lineup in this Champions League Group E clash, with Christian Pulisic, Mateo Kovacic, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech all pushing to start at Stamford Bridge.
For Sevilla, Jules Kounde is unavailable due to testing positive for COVID-19, which is a big blow forJulen Lopetegui’s side, with Sergio Escudero also set to miss out through injury.
So, what lineup will Lampard go with? And, what will the final score be?

We used FIFA 20 to have a bit of fun and get a unique prediction ahead of this midweek Carabao Cup clash between Spurs and Chelsea.
Chelsea vs Sevilla score predicted using FIFA
To set up this simulation, we used kick-off mode within FIFA 21 but didn’t select a team to control. We then selected the teams and watched the match play out by itself, to give us a unique prediction.
The AI difficulty was set to legendary, with the line-up updated with the latest transfers, injuries and suspensions, to make the simulation as realistic as possible.
We predict that Chelsea could set up in a 4-3-3 formation, with their lineup as follows; Caballero; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Thiago Silva, Chilwell; Kante, Kovacic; Mount, Havertz, Pulisic; Werner.
We predict that Sevilla could set up in a 4-3-3 formation, with the line-up as follows; Bounou; Acuna, Carlos, Gomez, Navas; Jordan, Fernando, Rakitic; Ocampos, De Jong, Suso.
In our FIFA 21 simulation, all of the action came in the second-half, with the first-half seeing few major highlights.
