Given the manner of Saturday’s loss to Brighton, the Blues boss has an awful lot to ponder and could use this game to hand a runout to some of the players who have not had much of a chance under his watch yet.
Chelsea are already through to the last-16 as group winners.
Zagreb, meanwhile, could yet make it into the Europa League should they win, so aren’t exactly playing for nothing.
