Chelsea travel to Czech Republic as the Blues go away to Slavia Prague at the Eden Arena for the Europa League quarterfinal clash.

This will be the first meeting between the two sides, and against the Czech side who are in really good form.

Maurizio Sarri’s squad trained at Cobham on Wednesday morning and then left London for the Czech capital in the afternoon as a 21-man squad took the trip to Prague.

See the Chelsea squad in full below:

Kepa Arrizabalaga

Willy Caballero

Marcin Bulka

Toni Rudiger

Andreas Christensen

Cesar Azpilicueta

David Luiz

Marcos Alonso

Emerson Palmieri

Davide Zappacosta


N’Golo Kante

Ross Barkley

Mateo Kovacic

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Eden Hazard



Olivier Giroud

Gonzalo Higuain

Speaking ahead of the tie, Sarri has called for caution against a Slavia side that defeated Sevilla 6-5 on aggregate to reach the Europa League quarterfinal.

“We need to be careful because this is a very dangerous match for us,” Sarri said in his press conference.

“They are very dangerous. They scored six goals in two matches against Sevilla. We need to be very compact and to defend very well. Especially on crosses they attack the box with five or six players, and they are dangerous on counter-attacks. It won’t be easy for us.”
