Team News

Chelsea
Malmoe FF
  • Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Christian Pulisic is Chelsea's only absentee concern for the welcome of Malmoe.
  • The Chelsea manager believes Romelu Lukaku's goal drought is down to mental fatigue and has strongly hinted he could be given the night off here.
  • Nevertheless, Tuchel may take the opportunity to rotate and hand fringe players the chance to impress at Stamford Bridge.
  • Indeed, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Kepa and Kai Havertz are among those who may start, while Malang Sarr could be given another chance to impress.
  • Anel Ahmedhodzic is suspended after his red against Zenit last time out, with Niklas Moisander expected to deputise.
  • Patriot Sejdiu, Ola Toivonen, Jonas Knudsen and Oscar Lewicki are all ruled out due to injury.

Prediction

  • Following back-to-back defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Juventus, Chelsea responded with wins over Southampton and Brentford either side of the international break. They'll be confident of picking up a third successive victory against Malmoe FF here.
  • A 3-0 win at Oestersunds at the weekend was Malmoe's fourth in their last six in all competitions. However, across their last 11 matches, they have failed to win seven, so the Swedish side will be hoping they are now fully over their dip in form.
  • A trip to Stamford Bridge is hardly ideal at this stage. The Blues should make light work of their Swedish counterparts on home turf.

  • How they didn’t count Lukaku’s shot on target when he shot on the 8th minute. Shot was going in and it changed direction just slightly and goalkeeper made huge save. Help?

  • 1.08 odds for Chelsea. Are Malmo really that bad?

  • @uefalona Or maybe people think Chelsea is that good.

  • Come on, Chelsea! 2-0 home win

  • @Chilly_B Did you just say 2-0? This can end in 4-0

  • @McHennie well done but Chelsea have only scored 4 goals in a game previously under Tuchel

  • @Chilly_B I mean it's Malmo, come on, literally one of the easiest opponents, surely wasn't hard to score 4.

  • @childishjp really? Because we've only played Malmo about 3 times in our entire history. It's impossible to gauge how good they are relative to us because we never play each other

  • 4-0

  • This one have only one winner -- Chelsea, only problem is the final score, but on what team they have it will be at least 3 goals difference. 1&2,5 is be best bet i think !

  • Chel$ki win and RomeLUkaku to score anytime!

  • Line Up; Kepa, Azpi, Silva, Sarr, Alonso, Kovacic, Jorginho, Odoi, Havertz, Lukaku, Mount.

  • Lukaku hatrick, CHE6:0 MFF

  • boring 2-0, antifootball

  • this is exactly the kind of team that Big Rom terrorizes. I expect a brace from the Belgian, a goal from Turbo Timo and one from the Midfield. Mount most likely
