BATE Borisov vs Chelsea predictions and match preview

Ruben Loftus-Cheek can help West Ham break into the top 10

'We felt that for him it's better to play, not for 90 minutes, but to play after two weeks of not playing.

Loftus-Cheek was linked with a number of clubs over the summer, but stayed put to fight for a regular starting berth under Maurizio Sarri.

BATE nearly snatched a leveller in the third minute of added-on time, but Baha's 20-yard volley struck the post before Chelsea frantically cleared the ball away from danger and saw out the remaining seconds for their fourth successive win of the group.

As a result, BATE are already relying on PAOK and MOL Vidi to draw in their fixture on Thursday to have any hopes of finishing second - while a shock win over Chelsea would also go some way.

Chelsea are juggling a few fitness concerns going into their Europa League clash on Thursday.

But now they are in the competition, the Blues are one of the favourites to win the whole thing after a good start to the group stage. "They were unlucky. I think they could draw the match".

Tuesday's outcome effectively kickstarted the 2020 Presidential campaign in a country that is on a perpetual election cycle. According to U.S. media reports on Thursday, Mueller's team have started writing the final report of the investigation.

BATE, on the other hand, are at the tail end of the Belarusian Premier League season, winning the league recently with a 14-point lead and just three games remaining.

Chelsea fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration after the Blues endured a hard first-half against BATE Borisov in Belarus.

Scherbitski, Filipovic, Filipenko, Volkov, Rios, Dragun, Hleb, Baga, Stasevich, Skavysh, Signevich.

Predicted Away XI: Arrizabalaga; Zappacosta, Christensen, Cahill, Emerson; Fabregas; Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic; Pedro, Giroud, Willian. He was due to play but picked up an injury, which the Blues manager also revealed ahead of the game.

Record five-time winners Sevilla needed a late penalty from Ever Banega to claim a 3-2 victory at Akhisar Belediyespor, after having a man sent off, losing a two-goal lead and seeing the Turks miss a spot-kick of their own.

Morata has scored four times in his last four Premier League appearances and Sarri thinks it best to let him recuperate rather than risk running him into the ground.
