A CHANCE FOR SILVERWARE?
Chelsea named a fairly strong line-up for their win at PAOK last month, suggesting Maurizio Sarri won’t be taking the Europa League too lightly.
If they wanted to use the competition to blood youngsters they would have plenty of options, with players like Ethan Ampadu and Callum Hudson-Odoi waiting in the wings.
We didn’t see either of them starting in Greece, but on home soil against the weakest team in the group on paper, might it be time for some tinkering, and could this happy chappy outside Stamford Bridge be spotted inside too?
