Given the form of Saturday’s loss to Brighton, the Blues boss has plenty to ponder and could use this game to turn around some of the players who haven’t yet had much opportunity under his watch.
Chelsea is already in the round of 16 as group champions.
Meanwhile, Zagreb could still make it to the Europa League if they win, so they’re not exactly playing for nothing.
