Chelsea vs Malmo team news
Thomas Tuchel is considering resting striker Romelu Lukaku, who has struggled in recent weeks after initially hitting the ground running following his summer arrival.
The German can, however, welcome back the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva, all of whom missed the 1-0 win at Brentford.
Chelsea vs Malmo prediction
Malmo have conceded seven goals in their opening two games without scoring one in reply and are unlikely to find the going much easier here, even if Tuchel rotates heavily.
