On the one hand, Chelsea will be hoping to cement their place as one of the teams to qualify from Group H, after they suffer a major defeat against the Turin giants at Allianz Stadium in UCL match day two.

However, a report from football.london has it that the west London giants will be hosting Malmo at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, without three of their star players, such as Antonio Rudiger, Christian Pulisic, and Hakim Ziyech, due to injury.

Antonio Rudiger was injured during the last international, which cause him to miss their second qualifier with North Macedonia, meanwhile, Christian Pulisic on the other hand was a casualty of the season’s first international break and although he appears to be returning to fitness, the Brentford game came too soon for him.

The blues head coach had earlier confirmed that the trio won’t be in contention.
