Premier League giants Chelsea make a return to the Champions League stage later tonight after a one-year absence from the competition last season.

Chelsea missed out on the Champions League last season after finishing in fifth place at the end of the Premier League campaign from the previous season.

The Blues ended the last campaign by winning the Europa League title thus booking their place in the Champions League this season as a result.

Chelsea secured the Europa League title by thrashing fellow London club Arsenal 4-1 in their final clash in the Azerbaijani capital of Baku.

The West Londoners had earlier sealed their spot in the group stage of the Champions League this season after finishing in third position under the guidance of Italian tactician Maurizio Sarri who has since left the club in the summer.

Sarri left Chelsea for Italian champions Juventus in the summer.

Chelsea welcome star midfielder N’Golo Kante back into their squad for the Valencia game after recovering from injury.

French World Cup winner Kante has missed the last three games in the league.

Possible Chelsea XI vs Valencia: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma, Marcos Alonso; N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic; Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham.
