Chelsea will be hoping to finish the season off in style by sealing a Champions League spot.
The Blues have had an up and down season under Mauro Sarri but remain on course to finish in the top four, while they also have a chance of capturing the Europa League after progressing in mid-week.
Indeed, Sarri will be hoping that the club can overturn a transfer ban and bring in some new players this morning, while he will also be hoping to keep hold of some of his better players too.
However, Sarri could be in for a shock with the potential return of outcast midifleder Tiemoue Bakayoko, who has expressed his desire to return to the club from AC Milan following alleged racist abuse suffered while playing in Serie A.
And while admirable it is for Bakayoko to want to come back and prove himself in London, we here in the Tavern just do not see a way in which he can find a place isquad and make a big enough impact to prove his worth.
Bakayoko has had a decent enough time in Milan in footballing terms, and has got back to the sort of form which persuaded Chelsea to splash the cash on him and bring him over from Monaco just two years ago.
The midfielder however has never looked the part in the Premier League, and he appears to struggle with the pace and pressure of playing in the Premier League.
While there is clearly a player in there with Bakayoko, it’s safe to assume his time with the Blues is never going to be a successful one, and he might be best served seeking a move away from the Bridge in the coming months.
