Expected Chelsea XI for Europa League trip to PAOK

Maurizio Sarri made it five wins out of in the Premier League. Next up for the Blues is a trip to PAOK in their opening Europa League tie on Thursday night. Sarri is expected to spring a number of changes in what should be a routine victory for the Blues. Willy Caballero is likely to come in for Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal; sitting behind a back four of Davide Zappacosta, Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill and Emerson. In midfield - with Mateo Kovacic and Cesc Fabregas doubts - Chelsea are expected to deploy a trio of Ross Barkley, Danny Drinkwater and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Hat-trick hero Hazard should be rested for this outing, meaning Sarri will most likely start Pedro and Willian out wide. And Alvaro Morata is expected to lead the line after being dropped for Olivier Giroud on Saturday.
