Chelsea won a Champions League bid on its own merits, finishing third in the Premier League, but then won the Europa League for good measure (denying Arsenal the back-door entry into the elite competition). The Blues open up their 2019-20 Champions League campaign with a lot of new faces on the squad. They’ll be playing Valencia, which is experiencing its own acute transition with a recent managerial sacking.

Chelsea vs. Valencia: What to watch for
N’Golo Kante’s still a question mark to go on Tuesday in the Group H. Chelsea would clearly prefer he be available. He’s the biggest injury concern, though it looks like Antonio Rudiger’s current injury may leave the Blues a little thin on defense. One player looking just fine and fit is Tammy Abraham, who scored a hat trick on the weekend to lead a 5-2 mauling of Wolves.
Speaking of 5-2, that’s the score Valencia lost to over the weekend, coming up short to Barcelona in Albert Celades’ debut as skipper. It could be a long season and a short Champions League campaign for Los Ches, though Maxi Gomez and Kevin Gameiro are solid goal scorers who could trouble Chelsea’s defense on the right day.
