It's not a must win, but...

It seems like we say this pretty often, but it sure would be nice if the seniors could emulate the youth, who won 2-0 earlier today in the Ukrainian capital.  Tammy Abraham, goal-machine, scored both Chelsea goals.

Good news: Eden Hazard's back.  Bad news:  Oscar remains in the doghouse.  Somewhat surprising news: Zouma starts instead of Baba.  Mildly interesting news:  Kenedy & Traore are both on the bench, too.

The news that matters: COME ON, CHELSEA!
