Blues arrive in Sweden

A 21-man-strong Chelsea squad has completed the journey to Sweden and arrived in Malmo ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League fixture.

The Blues completed their final training session at Cobham in preparation for the game before leaving England this afternoon, arriving in Sweden shortly after 6pm UK time.

Thomas Tuchel will be without Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount and N'Golo Kante against Malmo as all five have remained in London for treatment and recovery.

However, Christian Pulisic is part of the travelling group, as he continues his own return from injury, meaning he could be involved for the first time since the win over Crystal Palace in August.

The Blues will be looking for a repeat of last month's home fixture against Malmo, when we triumphed 4-0 thanks to Andreas Christensen’s first Chelsea goal, a tidy Kai Havertz finish and a brace of penalties by Jorginho.

We currently sit in second place in Group H at the halfway point of the Champions League group stage, with two wins and one defeat, leaving us three points ahead of Zenit St Petersburg and trailing leaders Juventus by the same margin.

The full Chelsea squad to face Malmo is:

Kepa Arrizabalaga

Antonio Rudiger

Marcos Alonso

Andreas Christensen

Jorginho

Thiago Silva

Christian Pulisic

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Marcus Bettinelli

Trevoh Chalobah

Edouard Mendy

Saul Niguez

Ross Barkley

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Ben Chilwell

Hakim Ziyech

Reece James

Cesar Azpilicueta

Kai Havertz

Malang Sarr

Harvey Vale
