Maurizio Sarri never won a trophy at Napoli, but he still has a chance to earn one during his initial season at Chelsea. Tonight is the final home game of the season for the Blues, the second leg of their UEFA Europa League semifinal tie against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Blues head into the match, quite possibly the last time the home fans see Eden Hazard in action for their side, knotted up at 1-1 on aggregate. This may be the last time Olivier Giroud and David Luiz don a blue shirt at home too, as their contracts are set to expire.

The Blues will be without three of their most talented players N’Golo Kante, Antonio Rudiger and Callum Hudson-Odoi, due to injury in this one.

In other words, it’s not going to be easy here, yes despite the manner in which the west London side has essentially cruised through most of this tournament.

Let’s take a look at who Maurizio Sarri might go with in his first team here, as he strives to get his side through to the UEL final.
