Sarri Set To Make Mulitple Changes

Chelsea take on MOL Vidi at Stamford Bridge tomorrow night in the second round of the Europa League group stage games.

Chelsea are massively odds-on (1/10) to beat the Hungarians to claim six points from six after they won their first game 1-0 against Greek outfit PAOK.

MOL Vidi lost their opener 2-0 at home to BATE, who ply their trade in the Vysshaya Liga, the top division in Belarus.

Chelsea played six games in all competitions throughout September and manager Maurizio Sarri is set to make seven changes to his side.

Out of favour, Alvaro Morata, Cesc Fabregas and Andreas Christensen will be hoping to get a place in the starting line-up against the Hungarians, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek would also like a chance to get some game time.

Speaking about his team selection at today's press conference, Sarri said: "I have to speak to Pedro, he is doing better, like Loftus.

"Every player is at a level, but I have to change maybe five, six, seven players.

"I don't know I want to see the training tomorrow morning and this afternoon."

Talking about Loftus-Cheek and the pressure on the youngster, the Chelsea manager added: "He was Unlucky in the last three weeks with the national team.

"He has a problem in the last five or six days he has been better. He is able to play tomorrow.

"The pressure is normal for the player of a high level. So, he has to get used to the pressure. It's normal of a player to have pressure."

The game might an opportunity for out-of-form Morata to find his mojo, the Spanish striker has scored just once this term. The 25-year-old is 2/5 to score any time at the Bridge and 13/5 to open the scoring.
