Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Malmo

Sports Mole looks at the latest injury and suspension news for Chelsea ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash with Malmo.

Chelsea head into Thursday's Europa League encounter with Malmo looking to provide a positive response to their humiliating 6-0 defeat to Manchester City.

The Blues found themselves four goals down after 24 minutes at the Etihad Stadium, before City added a further two strikes during the second half on Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea have now lost their last three away matches in the Premier League having failed to find the back of the net and conceding a total of 12 goals.

The club's form has piled the pressure on Maurizio Sarri, but the West Londoners are unbeaten on their travels in Europe this season.

Here, Sports Mole looks at Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their showdown with the Swedish side.
