The Blues and their magic moment will continue on Thursday as they face Greek side PAOK. Surely PAOK will be dreadful against the possessive style Sarri will take to Europe.

The question remains if the morbid formation will suit the neophytes that would feature in our predicted lineup.

Many expect Sarri to face Ivan Savvidis men with quality players as he springs up a number of changes to conserve other mogul players ahead of the premier league match against West Ham.

There will be consideration wether Kepa Arrizabalaga will start ahead of Caballero, just maybe we think he would.

Gary Cahill is tipped to earn the captain arm-band while he replaces David Luiz as he pairs with Andreas Christensen.

Alonso has been busy lately after coming back from international break so Emerson should stand in his place while Azpilicueta will likely watch Davide Zappacosta play his role.

The midfielders will need to take a respite as we think it is time for Danny Drinkwater, Ethan Ampadu and Ross Barkley to form a second trio for the Italian boss.

Victor Moses could start in the right-wing while Pedro will play alongside with Alvaro Morata as the front triumvirate.

We expect a normal 4:3:3 formation overall as new men would be tested on Thursday night.

Chelsea 4;3;3 formation
