Chelsea will take on Greek side PAOK tonight as they kick-start their Europa League game and Maurizio Sarri is expected to heavily rotate his squad.
The Blues are currently occupying the zenith of the Premier League log and to keep his players fresh, game time will be given to almost all of the fringe players at the club.
Four players were left out of the party that traveled with the squad. They include Eden Hazard, Matteo Kovacic, Emery Palmieri and David Luis.
Kovacic picked up a knock against Cardiff City last weekend while Hazard and Luiz have been given time off to freshen up. It is unclear why Palmieri did not travel with the rest of the squad.
Meanwhile, Sarri has revealed the Morata will be given the nod to lead the attacking line for the Blues today after he was dropped to the bench against Cardiff.
“I don’t know [who will be the Premier League starter in the future].
“In the last two weeks I have seen four matches of Cardiff and four matches of PAOK Salonika and for me, yesterday I thought Giroud was more suitable for this match and Morata more suitable for the other.” Sarri said
Victor Moses, Ross Barkley, Cesc Fabregas and, youngsters Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ethan Ampadu are all in the squad and they could feature against the Greek side.
