Malmo vs Chelsea FC, Team news, Possible line-up| Check full details

Chelsea came out 4-0 winners against Malmo at Stamford Bridge last month and could probably take a step closer to qualifying for the last 16 with another win tonight.

Thomas Tuchel and his team will face Malmo without Romelu Lukaku  who is still not available after twisting his ankle against Malmo last time, Timo Werner who after pulling up with a hamstring injury in Malmo’s visit to Bridge, Mateo Kovacic sustained a hamstring injury in training last week, Mason Mount, due to illness after scoring his first career hat-trick against Norwich City last week and N’Golo Kante  as they remained in London for treatment and recovery.

Meanwhile in-form wing-backs Ben Chilwell and Reece James could make way for Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta, in premier league match against Burnley in mind.

Thiago Silva and Andreas Christensen could similarly sit back, making way for upcoming star Trevoh Chalobah and Malang Sarr to join Antonio Rudiger in the back three.

Chelsea next goal will be the 500th goal scored in European competitive matches.

The Blues need to score two goals to reach 2,000 since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.
