Olivier Giroud Starts – Chelsea Team vs Eintracht Frankfurt Confirmed


Fixture: Chelsea vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Competition: Europa League
Kick-off: 20:00 (UK time)

Chelsea have named their side and substitutes to entertain Eintracht Frankfurt in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final tie. 

The Blues drew the first leg 1-1 in Germany and have a precious away goal which means if the Bundesliga side cannot score then they will go out and Maurizio Sarri's men will reach the final.  


The pressure is also off Chelsea as they have already qualified for next season's Champions League, meaning only the thrill of collecting silverware is on their mind in the Europa League.

Antonio Rudiger is out for the rest of the campaign with injury, while N'Golo Kante misses out with a hamstring niggle. 

Sarri selects Kepa in goal, while Andreas Christensen and David Luiz provide the centre-back partnership. Jorginho slots into midfield, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mateo Kovacic both start. In attack, Sarri picks Willian, Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud.

The Chelsea manager has options on the bench if he needs to shake things up, including Gonzalo Higuain and Pedro.

Chelsea Team vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Christensen, Emerson, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Hazard, Willian, Giroud

Substitutes: Caballero, Cahill, Zappacosta, Alonso, Barkley, Pedro, Higuain
