Sarri given triple fitness boost ahead of Europa League tie

Andreas Christensen, Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are in all contention to start in Chelsea’s midweek Europa League game.

The London Evening Standard reports that Maurizio Sarri is in line to receive a triple fitness boost ahead of the tie against Vidi.

The trio missed Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Liverpool with their respective injuries and illnesses.

Pedro suffered a shoulder injury during Chelsea’s previous Europa League clash, however, it was not deemed as serious as it first appeared.

Christensen was forced out of Chelsea’s midweek win over Liverpool in the Carabao Cup with an illness.

The Danish defender played through the first half but was taken off after throwing up in the changing rooms during the break.

Loftus-Cheek has also struggled with injuries so far this season and will be hoping to get some much-needed game time under his belt.

Chelsea face the Hungarian champions on Thursday night looking to make it two wins from two in Europe.
