Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction, Team News at Dynamo Kiev (Europa League)



Chelsea FC are sitting very pretty right now when it comes to advancing through to the UEFA Europa League quarterfinals. Up 3-0 on aggregate from the first leg, the Blues will head to Dynamo Kiev with a very loose mentality and a squad that is essentially fully fit.

At this time, Marco van Ginkel (knee) is Chelsea’s only known injury absentee for the midweek clash. Overall, it seems that manager Maurizio Sarri has gotten through a very rough patch of results lately, and now his job status is apparently on more solid footing.

Although their top four status (a highly competitive four team race for just two spots will transpire over the final eight matches) is anything but certain, they can breathe a bit easier about the second route back into Champions League that they have available via the UEL.
