Chelsea will kick-start their Europa League campaign with a trip to Greece, but who will start in a heavily-rotated XI for the Blues
It is expected Maurizio Sarri will rotate the majority of his Chelsea starting XI to kick off the 2018/19 Europa League campaign against PAOK on Thursday night.
The Italian boss is set to make a string of changes to keep his squad fresh and content, with plenty of competition for places.
Sarri has confirmed one starter already with Alvaro Morata set to lead the line for Chelsea despite being dropped against Cardiff at the weekend.
Speaking after the Cardiff game: “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.”
Predicted Chelsea team to face PAOK in the Europa League
(4-3-3) Caballero; Zappacosta, Christensen, Cahill, Palmieri; Fabregas, Kante, Barkley; Willian, Morata, Hudson-Odoi.
