Chelsea will look to finish the job and book their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League when they take on Slavia Prague at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Maurizio Sarri starts with Kepa in goal while Cesar Azpilicueta once again starts at right-back with David Luiz also keeping his place in the back four. Andreas Christensen starts in place of the injured Antonio Rudiger and Emerson Palmeiri gets the nod ahead of Marcos Alonso at left-back.

The Chelsea boss has decided to give Jorginho a rest with the Italian international dropping to the bench tonight. N’Golo Kante keeps his place in the middle of the park with Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley joining him.

Olivier Giroud will lead the line up front for Chelsea with Gonzalo Higuain having to make-do with a place among the substitutes. Eden Hazard starts the game and the Belgian superstar is joined by Pedro in the Blues attack.

That means Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi have to settle for places on the bench while Gary Cahill and Davide Zappacosta are also among the subs for Chelsea tonight.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Chelsea

Kepa; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Christensen, Emerson; Kante, Kovacic, Barkley; Pedro, Giroud, Hazard.

Subs: Caballero, Jorginho, Higuaín, Hudson-Odoi, Zappacosta, Willian, Cahill
