Chelsea’s evolution under the auspices of enigmatic Italian Maurizio Sarri has been seamless.

The former Napoli boss has guided the West Londoners to an unbeaten start in the Europa League after wins over PAOK Salonika, MOl Vidi and BATE Borisov.

They come up against the Belarusians once more, this time in the former industrial city of Borisov, looking to secure their place in the knockout stages of the competition.

Sarri has made full use of the resources at his disposal in Europe, resting key assets including Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante, while giving game time to a string of fringe players.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek seized this opportunity to display his talents on the European stage with both hands, scoring a hat-trick against BATE last time out.

Only time will tell if the imposing Englishman’s heroics will see him play more minutes in the Premier League, but he will surely be given a regular stating berth during Chelsea’s Europa League campaign.

BATE prop up the table with three points from their first three games but are level on points with PAOK and MOL Vidi.

Alyaksey Baha will be desperate to avenge their loss in London and give his side a fighting chance of qualifying alongside Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea.

Eden Hazard is the surprise inclusion in Sarri’s Matchday squad having missed the previous three matches, but Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas have not been risked.

Marcos Alonso, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Victor Moses have also remained in the UK.

BATE manager Alyaksey Baha on Chelsea test: "We have followed all the games Chelsea have played.

“Videoton played well, had plenty of chances and could have got a different result. They are an example for us.

“We analyse the games (against Arsenal) so we learnt from our mistakes. Now, a year later we are here in England, in London, playing against a top club, and we hope for a better result this time.

“It is kind of good news that Hazard is not playing, but it will still be a very strong line-up. Chelsea is the kind of team with so many players that will be capable of replacing Hazard with no problem.”

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri on unbeaten record: "I am very proud to be the coach of this team.

“The record is not one of the coach, but of the team.

"I was lucky. I have very good players, and my players, in the last two months, were able to win also without a great level of organisation from the tactical point of view. I was lucky, I think.”

The only competitive fixture between BATE and Chelsea was a fortnight ago in Europa League Matchday 3.

Chelsea ran out 3-1 winners at Stamford Bridge thanks to a hat-trick from Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

  • Chelsea defeated BATE Borisov 3-1 in the first ever meeting between these two sides in the preceding match day.
     
  • BATE Borisov have now lost four of their five meetings with English clubs (W1). All matches were in the Europa League group stages.
     
  • BATE have managed just two wins in their last 15 Europa League games (D5 L8), scoring 13 goals and conceding 33.
     
  • Chelsea have now won six consecutive Europa League games, since a 2-3 defeat at Rubin Kazan in April 2013.
     
  • Chelsea have had the most shots in the competition so far (73), while also facing fewer than any other team (15).

BATE: 8/1

Draw: 9/2

Chelsea: 3/10

All odds correct with Bet365 at the time of writing.
