Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their Europa League clash on Thursday night devise a new strategy making six changes to avert a seeming defeat as 6-0 by Manchester City but retained Barkley in the starting XI who boosted Sarri’s faith with opening goal on the half hour mark.

Barkley poked home Pedro’s cross to ensure Chelsea held a lead at the break and Giroud doubled their advantage on 58 minutes.

Giroud converted Willian’s cross to goal with a clever flick but the Premier League side had to cling on at the end as the Swedish outfit pulled a goal back through Anders Christiansen 10 minutes to end of game.

The blues will host Malmo in their second leg of the Europa League clash on February 21 at Stamford Bridge .
