The Blues have traveled to Greece and will face PAOK Thessaloniki in the Europa League tonight.

New manager Maurizio Sarri is also yet to experience defeat at Chelsea and is expectant that the fine run continues in Europe.

Regardless, the Blues will be without some key players for tonight’s game as there will be many games to play in the coming weeks.

Eden Hazard is the biggest omission from the Chelsea squad as Sarri took just 21 players out of a possible 25 to Greece.

It can be recalled that Sarri stated that the Belgian had asked to be rested for the game.

Croatia international Mateo Kovacic didn’t make the trip with the squad after picking a knock in the game against Cardiff City.

Brazilian defender David Luiz will play no part in the game too. Meanwhile, Emerson Palmieri is absent from the game due to a virus.

The likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek make it into the squad for tonight’s game and will be hoping to get a run-in.
