After beating Slavia Prague 1-0 away at Prague in what was a very difficult game for Chelsea, Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is taking the second leg at Stamford Bridge very serious and has named a very strong line-up for this clash.
Sarri has handed starts to Eden Hazard and the bulk of his regular first eleven, with N’Golo Kante also included in the starting team. However, there is no Jorginho in the starting line-up and Gary Cahill returns to the bench.
