Match preview 🖊 

Dynamo Kiev's Olympic Stadium pitch is "a disaster" and could cause injuries, manager Maurizio Sarri said before Chelsea's Europa League last-16 second leg tie on Thursday. The Blues take a 3-0 first-leg lead into the encounter in Ukraine and are expected to make wholesale changes here, to preserve key names for a Premier League clash at Everton on Sunday.

The Italian, whose side trained at the stadium on Wednesday, said: "I think it's [the pitch] really dangerous. "It will be very difficult to play good football here. We have to accept the situation."

Of sides still in this season's Europa League, only Eintracht Frankfurt (six) are on a longer current unbeaten run away from home in the competition than Chelsea (five - W4 D1)

Team news 📰

Chelsea's Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain did not travel with the squad. "He had a fever after the league match [Sunday's 1-1 draw with Wolves] for two days," explained Sarri. "On Tuesday evening with the doctor, we decided to leave him at home in order to recover him for the next match."

Chelsea's Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain did not travel with the squad. Callum Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Olivier Giroud and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all expected to start here.

Dynamo will be without suspended midfielder Vitaliy Buyalskyi and forward Benjamin Verbic, who tweeted on Thursday that he was suffering from an illness.
