REVEALED Sarri is very likely to have one eye on Sunday’s EFL Cup final against Manchester City – where a win, avenging their 6-0 defeat earlier this month, would arguably end the calls for his departure.But the Europa League is important to the club too. If Chelsea miss out on a top four place – they currently sit sixth in the Premier League – the European competition is the only other way they can quality for the Champions League next season.So the Blues may well be torn over what to focus on, and should Sarri rest his top stars on Thursday night it can only be good news for Rosler and his underdogs.

I think Sarri wanted to kill the game off in the first leg.“He put out a very strong team from the start and in the second-half they’re leading 2-0 and they brought on Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante.“But we got our goal, which was crucial for us to keep the tie open.“But now Sarri is a little bit in limbo. He has a cup final on Sunday and he needs to win titles, so what will he do with us?“It’ll be interesting to see his starting XI.” 2 Malmo are hoping to claim a shock victory at Stamford Bridge LATEST FOOTBALL NEWSlast_img read more
