Chelsea manager Graham Potter has quite the task every time that he composes his team sheet. The Blues boss has so many talented, i.e. expensive, players to choose from when he fills out his first XI, and his substitutes list. This is especially true when the side is near full fitness, give how deep the roster is.
Currently, Chelsea will only be sans three players in midweek, when they visit Brentford FC for a London derby on Wednesday night. Although an additional two face last minute fitness assessments.
