Chelsea head to Old Trafford this weekend, but after that attention will quickly turn to the trip to Frankfurt.
The first leg of Chelsea’s Europa League semi-final sees them travel to Germany to face an inform Eintracht Frankfurt side looking to go all the way in Europe.
They currently sit fourth in the Bundesliga but they should not be underestimated. Ahead of next week’s clash, we’ve taken a closer look at their dangermen and who Chelsea need to look out for.
Luka Jovic is a man wanted by nearly every big European outfit this summer. The form he has shown this season in the Bundesliga is nothing short of sensational and he’ll be Frankfurt’s main goal threat when Chelsea travel to Germany.
He’s a man that Chelsea have been linked with and the Blues will get the chance to see him up close and personal.
Filip Kostic has been one of the more unsung heroes for Frankfurt this season. The Serbian has been around the block in Germany but now appears to be showing some of his best form for Frankfurt.
He has already matched his best goal tally in the Bundesliga with five to his name so far this season.
During his first spell with Frankfurt, Trapp impressed so much that he earned himself a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
He never quite broke through there, where it was probably a step too far for the German, but since returning on loan he has impressed in the Bundesliga and the Europa League.
Trapp has been a reliable pair of hands in between the sticks, crucial to their progress in Europe.
Luka Jovic may be stealing all the headlines in Frankfurt, but Sebastien Haller is an equally dangerous prospect in front of goal. Standing at 6ft 2in, Haller could provide Chelsea with some problems in the final third.
Sebastian Rode has been fantastic for Frankfurt since joining the club on loan from Borussia Dortmund. He’s one of the more experienced members of the squad and it shows.
Injuries and lack of game time held him back at Dortmund but he is really finding his form again with Frankfurt.
