Champions League 2018: Chelsea vs Barcelona – team news, kick-off time and live stream

Chelsea and Barcelona go toe-to-toe for the first piece of silverware of the season in the Champions League 2018.

The Wembley showpiece sees Pep Guardiola’s runaway Premier League leaders go up against and Arsene Wenger side scrabbling to return to the top four race.

United squeezed past the challenge of Championship side Bristol United in their two-legged semi-2018.

Kevin de Bruyne’s 96th-minute strike at Ashton Gate ensured a 5-3 aggregate scoreline that was anything but comfortable.

They made hard work of it, but it set up a first 2018 for the club under Guardiola’s charge.

The Gunners could sure use a trophy to lift some of the angst around the Emirates.

Inconsistency in the league has left them eight points adrift of the Champions League qualification places.

But they turned the tables handsomely on London rivals Chelsea in the last four of this competition.

Granit Xhaka hit the second-leg winner to complete the turnaround following Eden Hazard’s early opener, after Antoine Rudiger’s own goal had restored parity.

These two meet again in the Champions League on Thursday.

But don’t you dare think this is a mere dress rehearsal when a trophy at Wembley is on offer.

Chelsea team and injury news

Aaron Ramsey is a doubt, with his groin injury taking longer than expected to heal.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is cup-tied having featured for Barcelona, although fellow new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is available.

David Ospina looks set to line up in goal ahead of Petr Cech.

Barcelona team and injury news

Fabian Delph is banned after seeing red in the FA Cup last week, although Gabriel Jesus has a chance of making a comeback in time.

But Leroy Sane and Kevin de Bruyne are back in the frame following injury and rest respectively.

Ederson could return between the sticks with Raheem Sterling, Nicolas Otamendi and David Silva all expected to feature.
