Chelsea face Bate Borisov at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night as they bid to make it three wins out of three in the Europa League.

Maurizio Sarri has often rotated his squad in the midweek games. A tweet from the club carried an image of Gary Cahill with the timing of the match.

The veteran centre-back hasn’t seen much Premier League action this season, but some fans believed this was a sign the English defender would play this game.

However, many fans wanted the playing XI to feature Callum Hudson-Odoi. The 17-year-old hasn’t made a single senior appearance in the Premier League but did play in the Community Shield loss to Manchester City.

He is one of the best youth players at Chelsea, and if the fans had it their way, the English striker would be leading the line on Thursday evening.
