Mateo Kovacic is out injured but Maurizio Sarri has included an 18-year-old midfielder George McEachran in his travelling squad.

Option 1: strongest possible XI

The strongest possible side Maurizio Sarri could pick on Thursday, with Olivier Giroud getting the nod over Alvaro Morata and Willian selected ahead of Pedro. Eden Hazard will have a chance to end his 11-game goal drought.

Option 2: heavy rotation

With the game being a dead rubber for Chelsea, the Italian could give the fringe players a chance to impress. Back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero, Gary Cahill, Davide Zappacosta and Victor Moses could stake their claim in Hungary.

Option 3: unleash the youth

Perhaps the most appealing one to Chelsea fans all over the world, this line up includes Ethan Ampadu at centre-back, George McEachran in midfield and Callum Hudson-Odoi in attack. It’s time for Chelsea’s talented crop of youngsters to show what they’re made of.
