Last time Chelsea met Vllaznia in the Champions League group stage, the Blues brushed them aside with a 8-0 thrashing at Kingsmeadow on a mostly rotated squad. Expectations are that we do the same with a still heavily rotated squad two months ever since, with midfielder Jelena Cankovic getting a consecutive start after the show she put on against Reading in the Women’s Super League last weekend.
KF Vllaznia starting eleven:
Williams | Popovic, Gjergji, Maliqi, Gjini, Ramadani, Franja, Cavanaugh, Shala, Doçi, Lufo
Substitutes from: Raxhimi, Rexhepi, Vuksani, Curraj, Davidson, Piranaj, G. Berisha, Borci, Kodra, Šaranović, Panayiotou, Bashka
Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3?):
Musovic | Perisset, Buchanan, Nouwen, Charles | Fleming, Ingle (c), Cankovic | Kirby, Kerr, Reiten
Substitutes from: Berger, Orman, Bright, Carter, England, James, Svitkova, Eriksson, Mjelde, Kaneryd, Cuthbert
Date / Time: Friday, December 16, 17.45 BST; 12.45pm EST; 11:15pm IST
