TEAM NEWS: Five changes for Chelsea in Malmo test

TEAM NEWS: Five changes for Chelsea in Malmo test

14 Feb 2019, 22:20

Sarri has made five changes to the lineup that started Sunday’s humiliation in Manchester, but there’s still no place for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

With Hazard and former AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain among those on the bench, Sarri has tasked Oliver Giroud and Willian with troubling the hosts' defence with Kepa maintaining his position between the sticks despite soaking six goals in the club's last outing.

Malmo began this season in the Champions League before being eliminated in the preliminary stages by Vidi, who were later eliminated themselves and wound up meeting Chelsea in the group stages of this competition, where they were pesky opponents (losing 1-0 at Stamford Bridge and gaining a 2-2 at home, the only match Chelsea have not to win in this competition this season).

Dropped

Having dropped into the Europa league, Malmo has had a decent European campaign, finishing second in their group below Genk but above Besiktas and Sarpsborg.

Malmo Starting XI: Dahlin; Safari, Rieks, Bachirou, Traustason, Christiansen, Bengtsson, Nielsen, Vindheim, Antonsson, Rosenberg

Subs: Melicharek, Larsson, Binaku. Lewwicki, Strandberg, Ahmedhozic, Gall

Chelsea Starting XI: Kepa; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Christensen, Emerson; Kovacic, Jorginho, Barkley; Pedro, Giroud, Willian

Subs: Cabellero, Rüdiger, Kanté, Higuain, Hazard, Hudson-Odi, Zappacosta
