Will Chelsea secure a place in the Europa League Final, in Baku, this Thursday evening?

They certainly have a good chance after winning the first-leg, away to Eintracht Frankfurt last Thursday evening.

But Chelsea will have to be at their best, they cannot afford a first forty-five minutes like we experienced on Sunday, against Watford, otherwise, those hopes of another European Final could be ended by a Frankfurt side who are capable of pulling off an upset.

As is the norm, we’re running our usual feature whereby we invite you to second-guess the starting eleven that Maurizio Sarri will opt for.

With the last game of the Premier League season, against Leicester City, slightly irrelevant now that Chelsea have secured Champions League football for next season, we’re hoping that Sarri decides to field his strongest eleven, however, we’re never quite sure how Sarri’s mind works are we.

All we do know is that the squad has been beset with injuries recently with Callum Hudson-Odoi, Antonio Rudiger and N’Golo Kante.

The tie could also be Eden Hazard’s last appearance, for Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge if the speculation relating to a move to Real Madrid is correct.

To take part, all we ask you to do is to simply drop the names of the eleven you predict Sarri will start with into the comment facility beneath this article and we’ll see if anyone gets it 100% correct.
