    ZEN vs CHE Dream11: Reigning champions Chelsea will be seeking to finish first in Group H with a win over Zenit St Petersburg. Meanwhile, the hosts have already qualified for the Europa League after a draw with Malmo ensured third place.

    Zenit have been eliminated from UCL at the group stage for the third consecutive season. However, they have avoided finishing bottom after gaining four points from their fixtures against Malmo.

    Chelsea’s 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions came to an end last weekend when they lost 3-2 away to London rivals West Ham United. Despite leading 2-1 at halftime owing to a Thiago Silva header and a Mason Mount strike, the Hammers came away with all three points thanks to goals from Jarrod Bowen and Arthur Masuaku.

    Date: 8 December, Wednesday
    Kick-Off: 11:15 PM (IST)
