Ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Malmo in the last 32 of the Europa League, Sports Mole looks at how Maurizio Sarri may set out his side.
The Blues make the trip to Sweden on the back of a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City that saw them trail by four goals with a little over a quarter of the game played.
Questions have been asked of Sarri in the wake of that heavy loss, but the ex-Napoli boss now appears certain to still be in charge as Chelsea’s European campaign resumes at the Swedbank Stadion.
Here, Sports Mole looks at how the 2013 winners could line up on Thursday.
Despite being under intense pressure, Sarri is expected to heavily rotate his side for this trip to Scandinavia as it comes ahead of an FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United.
A number of fringe players are pushing for inclusion, including Bayern Munich target Hudson-Odoi. The youngster missed a couple of training session last week through illness but should be fit in time for Thursday’s match.
