Chelsea’s starting eleven to face Malmo in Sweden in the Europa League round of 32 this evening has been confirmed. 

Where do we even begin? Nothing really matters other than the fact that Callum Hudson-Odoi has been named among the substitutes. Sarri claimed during a press conference during the January transfer window that there were better times ahead for CHO. He lied. To the player, the fans and any youngster hoping to make it at Chelsea football club.

Andreas Christensen is named in the back four, but he should no longer be considered a youngster, rather a legitimate first-team player who is also being starved of opportunities. We’re playing Malmo, for Christ’s sake, yet he has absolutely no desire to mix things up in hope of a positive response. If this leads to his eventual sacking, we’ll have no sympathy.

Anyway, here’s how Chelsea lineup in full for tonight’s integral clash with Swedish heavyweights Malmo. If we’re able to defy the odds and get a result tonight, we’ll have one foot in the last 16 of the competition. Make sure you’re following our full coverage of tonight’s game @TalkChelsea.
