The Blues are currently top of the Premier League, having won six and only lost one of their eight games. Admittedly, their Champions League form has been a bit more mixed, with one win and one defeat, but they're still well-placed to qualify in Group H.

That defeat came against Juventus in Turin three weeks ago, but Chelsea won't be unduly worried by that. They're still clear favorites to make it through to the next round, along with the Italian side, and Malmo are unlikely to be able to take points off them here.

Harsh? Well consider that the Swedish team have so far conceded seven goals and scored none and that prediction might seem more reasonable. Malmo do currently top the Swedish top flight, but anything less than a Chelsea win will still be a shock.

What's more, the London side are at close to full strength for this tie. Defenders Thiago Silva and Toni Rudiger are both included in the starting line-up despite missing Saturday's win over Brentford, and Christian Pulisic is the only major absentee. The USA international is close to recovery from an ankle injury, but won't be risked here.

There was talk that Romelu Lukaku might have been rested, but manager Thomas Tuchel plays the Belgian forward from the start against the weakest opposition in the group. Timo Werner is alongside him, with Mason Mount just behind.

Malmo, meanwhile, will be without the suspended Anel Ahmedhodzic plus the injured Oscar Lewicki, Jonas Knudsen, Ola Toivonen and Felix Beijmo. One player who should be familiar to Premier League fans, though, is Swedish international Martin Olsson, who played for Norwich City and Swansea over a seven-year stint in the U.K.  

Here's how they line up:

Chelsea: Mendy; Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Werner; Lukaku.

Malmo: Dahlin; Larsson, Nielsen, Brorsson; Berget, Innocent, Christiansen, Pena, Olsson; Colak, Birmancevic.

Can Malmo spring a shock here? We'll find out very soon in the Chelsea vs Malmo live stream.
