The likes of Thiago Silva, Cesar Azpilicueta, Mason Mount and Jorginho did not take part in any pre-season matches, though, so Thomas Tuchel may be reluctant to field some of his star men right from the first whistle.
Trevoh Chalobah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ross Barkley, Davide Zappacosta and Tiemoue Bakayoko have all had parts to play in pre-season, but the quintet are not set to travel to Windsor Park for the encounter.
Callum Hudson-Odoi – who features on the ‘B list’ – may earn a place on the right flank if Reece James is not deemed ready to start, while Marcos Alonso could find himself bombing down the left-hand side.
Champions League final hero Kai Havertz seems set to lead the attack, but if Chelsea manage to get a £97.5m deal for Romelu Lukaku over the line by 11pm on Tuesday, he can be registered for the Super Cup.
Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Kovacic, Kante, Alonso; Ziyech, Werner; Havertz
