Chelsea will open our Europa League campaign with a game against PAOK in Greece on Thursday.

The Blues will face the Greek side without Eden Hazard, David Luiz and Mateo Kovacic as they didn’t travel with the team to Greece.

PAOK boast of one of the most intimidating stadiums in European football so the Blues are expected to face a hostile environment on Thursday.

Ahead of Thursday’s clash against PAOK, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed he expects the players to be able to play in every situation.

Asked if he has spoken to the players about the atmosphere they will receive on Thursday, Sarri said: “No because my players are professionals so they must be able to play in every situation.

“As I said before I am worried about the opponent because they are a very good team not the atmosphere in the stadium.

“We are professional so we have to play every where in every situation and we have to play good football because we want to gain points because out target is first of all to qualify.

“And then qualify for the first spot in our group and so in order to win our group the match of tomorrow is the most important in the group because it is the most difficult match.”
