Storylines
Chelsea: The Blues enter after scoring five goals over the weekend with Tammy Abraham having a hat trick. The young English striker is quickly turning into a star and will be needed here against a physical defense of Valencia led by Ezequiel Garay. Their best opportunity will be short passes atop the box to try and open up space to fire on goal.

Valencia: This is a team in turmoil. Just months after lifting a trophy by beating Barcelona in the Copa del Rey, Valencia has a new coach in Albert Celades — whose debut with the club was a 5-2 loss at Barca on Saturday. The team showed some good things and was a bit unlucky, but it was a deserved loss that showed a lack of cohesion, which could be a product of a well-liked coach being let go.

Prediction
Abraham scores, but a valiant Valencia gets a goal to steal a point from Maxi Gomez.

Pick: Chelsea 1, Valencia 1
