    THE TEAM SHEETS ARE IN!!!

    MALMO STATS

    Malmo are bottom of the table in Group H without any points having lost to Zenit St Petersburg, Juventus and Chelsea in the first leg.

    The Swedish champions’ first three Champions League fixtures have been very poor as they have conceded 11 times without scoring once.

    The hosts haven’t experienced much joy in previous encounters with Premier League competition as they lost seven of their eight previous games against English opponents in European competitions.

    The only time they've avoided defeat was against Nottingham Forest in 1995 when they won 2-1 in the UEFA Cup.

    Since their first ever Champions League home game in 2014, Malmo have only scored one goal in their last six matches at the Swedbank Stadion, of which they won one and lost five

    CHELSEA STATS

    Chelsea are second in Group H, which includes Juventus, Zenit St Petersburg and Malmo, with just three points separating them from Massimiliano Allegri’s table-toppers.

    The Blues won two of their first three Champions League matches but lost to Juve in Turin two months ago.

    The last time they lost consecutive away games in Europe was way back in November 2012 shortly after they won the cup under Roberto Di Matteo.

    The west Londoners should be feeling confident as they are unbeaten in their seven meetings with Swedish opposition, winning four along the way across all competitions

    HEAD-TO-HEAD

    Chelsea and Malmo’s first ever encounter took place in 2019 during the Europa League’s Last 32 stage in a match that the Premier League giants won 2-1 in Sweden.

    Since then, the two sides have faced off a total of three times with the Blues winning every single game along the way.

    The west Londoners also prevailed two years ago in the return fixture with a score of 3-0 thanks to goals by Olivier Giroud, Ross Barkley and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

    The two teams were drawn together in the Champions League group stage this season with Chelsea winning the first leg at Stamford Bridge two weeks ago with a score of 4-0 following goals by Andreas Christensen and Kai Havertz as well as a brace by Jorginho

    GOOD AFTERNOON FROM MALMO

    Welcome to our live coverage of the Champions League clash between Chelsea and Malmo at the Swedbank Stadion.

    Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is set to welcome Christian Pulisic back following an ankle issue that kept him sidelined since August’s Premier League opener against Crystal Palace.

    However, Tuchel is still dealing with some notable absences as he will be without Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic, Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku.

    Mount didn’t manage to play on Saturday’s 3-0 victory at Newcastle due to a non-coronavirus-related illness that he is still dealing with.

    Kovacic and Werner are sidelined with a hamstring injury whereas Lukaku is still healing from an ankle problem.

    The German head coach is still without a striker and thus Kai Havertz looks set to lead the attack once more as a false nine.

    Malmo manager Jon Dahl Tomasson, on the other hand, is still missing Ola Toivonen and Jonas Knudsen due to long-term knee injuries.

    However, Niklas Moisander has returned to action and may start in the home side’s back three.

    Former Norwich ace Martin Olsson will lock horns with Chelsea once more and is highly likely to start a little further up on the pitch at left wing-back for Tomasson’s side
