Nigerian-born midfielder Tino Anjorin will start for Chelsea in their final Champions League group encounter against Krasnodar at the Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
Chelsea are already through to the knockout round of the competition a as well as topping their group following their 4-0 win against Sevilla last week.
With the duo of Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson Odoi out of today’s game due to injuries and the inconsequential nature of the tie, manager Frank Lampard have the chance to play some of his youngsters.
According to the Telegraph, Anjorin will feature in the starting line-up alongside Billy Gilmour.
Anjorin is viewed as an extremely exciting talent at Stamford Bridge thanks to his dynamic presence in the middle of the pitch.
The 19-year-old is a powerful attacking box-to-box midfielder who loves to shoot when he can and has a real eye for goal.
He played twice for the first-team last season, coming on as a substitute in the 7-1 Carabao Cup victory against Grimsby before enjoying a cameo appearance against Everton prior to the coronavirus pandemic stopping football in its tracks.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
