Blues go in search of their first piece of silverware this season.

Chelsea host FC Basel at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final, holding a slender 2-1 advantage from the first leg in Switzerland last week.

However, ‘interim’ head coach Rafa Benitez will once again be forced to shuffle his resources as he attempts to guide the west London club to both glory in Europe this season, as well as finishing in the top four of the Premier League come May, and with it a place in next season’s Uefa Champions League.

Watch a preview of the match below:
