The Tottenham and Juventus target wasn’t even in the 18 chosen to face Eibar last time out.

But it seems there could be a reprieve for the 24-year-old in the Champions League showdown at Stamford Bridge.

The Spanish giants are very keen to protect themselves against Remi Moses and Marcos Alonso.

And with Gomes on board they could play 4-4-2, offering a better defensive platform for this crucial first-leg tie.
