Confirmed: Chelsea line-up v Schalke in the UEFA Youth League - Boga and Solanke start!

Here is the Chelsea under-19 side to face FC Schalke in the UEFA Youth League.

Chelsea under-19s: Collins, Tomori, Aina, Christensen, J.Dasilva, Colkett, Musonda, Loftus-Cheek, Brown (c), Boga, Solanke

Subs: Kiwomya, Thompson, Abraham, Clarke-Salter, Sammut, Palmer, Ugbo

Chelsea’s under-19s will be extremely confident as they get their UEFA Youth League campaign underway against FC Schalke this lunchtime.

The Blues will field a mixture of youngsters from the under-21 and under-18 sides, as they look to improve upon their efforts in this tournament from last season.

The Blues were arguably the best English side in the tournament last season and the under-21 team’s brilliant start to the domestic campaign should give some players on show confidence heading into the match.

The under-21 side have an unbeaten start to the season from all games played while the under-18 side are just two points off of London rivals Arsenal.

First team boss Jose Mourinho will have all of his attention on the Champions League game this evening, but it’s a great chance for some of the younger players to grab some attention when the Portuguese coach reviews the action.
