‘Finally Sarri listens’ – Chelsea boss widely praised by these fans for handing rare start to player vs Malmo

Chelsea fans are pretty happy with a Maurizio Sarri team selection this evening for a change as Callum Hudson-Odoi gets a start.

The Blues are already 2-1 up on aggregate in this Europa League tie against Malmo, who they welcome to Stamford Bridge this evening.

Many are also glad to see Jorginho out of the team, as well as Marcos Alonso being replaced by Emerson Palmieri at left-back.

Here’s a look at some of the tweets going around from Chelsea supporters ahead of tonight’s game…
