Chelsea will need a win against Malmo FF in today's Champions League game to keep their hopes of reaching the round of 16 alive. The Blues' most recent UCL match ended in a 1-0 defeat to Juventus. Despite outplaying Juventus, Chelsea was unable to convert their chances and were punished as a result. Meanwhile, here are three players Tuchel should bench and three stars who should replace them for tonight's game;
Kepa For Edouard Mendy
So far this season, Mendy has been at his best. He made incredible saves against Brantford to keep Chelsea from losing the game. Despite playing all of Senegal's games during the international break, he was still on the field for Chelsea against Brantford. I believe he should be rested while Kepa takes his place. Kepa has always performed admirably when called upon to replace Mendy, and I believe he can do so again tonight against Malmo.
Marcus Alonso For Ben Chilwell
Ben Chilwell has undeniably demonstrated his worth in Chelsea's last two games. He scored a spectacular Volley against Southampton and another against Brantford. He, like Mendy, played for England during the break and should also be rested. During the international break, Alonso helped Spain reach the final and should start ahead of Him.
Jorginho For Ruben Loftus-cheek
Ruben was excellent against Brantford last week, but because this is a Champions League game, Jorginho, who is more experienced, should start ahead of him.
