Chelsea’s task would have been difficult enough if Frank Lampard had a full compliment of players to choose from, but instead he finds his Blues squad ravaged by injury.
Captain Cesar Azpiilcueta and former Dortmund star Christian Pulisic both pulled up in the FA Cup final with a hamstring injury and are unlikely to play any part in this one.
And one of Pulisic’s potential replacements, Pedro, has played his last game for the club after dislocating his shoulder at Wembley. He moves to Roma next season.
That may mean a last ever Blues appearance for Willian, who is reportedly set to join Arsenal. However, even he is carrying a knock and sat out the cup final.
In central midfield, N’Golo Kante will be touch and go after injuring his hamstring against Watford a month ago and not playing since.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour are definitely out while Marcos Alonso and Jorginho are suspended.
For Bayern Munich, Kingsley Coman has a muscular problem meaning Ivan Perisic is likely to step in as a replacement.
Benjamin Pavard is also injured with Joshua Kimmich likely to slot in at right-back in his place.
