Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction, Injury Report at Malmo (UEFA Europa League)



The job of Maurizio Sarri isn’t reportedly in any immediate danger, despite the massive and humiliating losses that Chelsea have suffered lately. In falling out of the top four, Chelsea have lost their last three Premier League road fixtures by an aggregate margin of 12-0.

The egregiously awful 6-0 defeat at Manchester City increased speculation that Sarriball might be extinguished soon, but the conventional wisdom says that he’ll get at least another month- unless his side crashes out of the UEFA Europa League.

If Sarri can win the Europa League, and with it secure UEFA Champions League qualification for next season, the Italian will reportedly be back for next season. Let’s take a look at who he may select in his first team to face Swedish side Malmo on Thursday.
