Time for bench players to shine!
After a decent 1-0 victory in Greece on match day one of the Europa League Chelsea will now play Mol Vidi FC who are the current Hungarian League champions. Mol Vidi are fairly dominant in the Hungarian League having won their last three games although they did lose to Bate at home on match day one.
As far as Chelsea are concerned this should be an easy three points for us but the most important thing is to give our youth and fringe players another chance to impress Sarri. The attacking football has been a sight for sore eyes and while it may take at least a season for the full effect of Sarriball to take place fans need to be excited by the fact that we are so good already. The performance against Liverpool was a coming of age performance for Sarriball and many have made Chelsea outside favourites to challenge for the title.
The Europa League until Jan is a competition for the fringe players to take part in and so expect plenty of rotation and hopefully the players that fans are yearning to see will be given a start by Sarri.
Chelsea Team Preview
Caballero will most likely start with Bulka having an outside chance also. Zappacosta, Christensen, Cahill, and Emerson will probably start in defence. The midfield might see Loftus Cheek, Ampadu, and Fabregas get a chance to start and hopefully the first two do start. Up front Pedro, and Hudson-Odoi should start either side of Morata. Players like Hazard, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic etc should get a deserved rest.
Starting XI Prediction
3 points are expected but more than that more than a couple of goals are also needed. COME ON YOU BLUES!!!
