Chelsea have discovered who they will face in this year’s Europa League group stage.
The Blues are back in the Europa League after finishing fifth in the Premier League last season, five points behind Liverpool , to miss out on the Champions League.
Last season, Antonio Conte led the west London side to the Champions League round of 16 before they were knocked out by Barcelona – losing 3-0 at the Nou Camp after a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Now Maurizio Sarri is hoping to breeze into the knockouts again as they look to go all the way in Europe’s secondary club competition this time around and secure a spot in May’s final in Baku.
The Italian has enjoyed the perfect start to life in the Premier League season, with a 100 per cent win record after victories over Huddersfield , Arsenal and Newcastle
