They defeated Villa two weeks ago and are now hoping to do the same so as to book a place in the fourth round. However they will without the services of Eduardo Mendy who also missed a trip to Tottenham when chelsea defeated Spurs 3-0. Goals from Thiago Silva, Kante and Rudiger were enough for Thomas Tuchel's side to collect maximum points.

"Mendy cannot play, he was not in training so far.We'll try to do everything for Saturday, and to reintegrate him tomorrow to individual training and then hopefully Thursday into team training. But not yet."
