Giroud breaks goal duck in Chelsea win against BATE Borisov

Maurizio Sarri insists Eden Hazard would have stayed in England if he wasn't fully fit

Both sides struggled to create anything of note during the closing stages of the game, although Sarri did hand Callum Hudson-Odoi the chance to gain more experience in the first team with five minutes remaining.

Barkley played the entire 90 minutes as Chelsea took their unbeaten run this season to 17 games by reaching the last 32 of the Europa League with a 1-0 win at BATE Borisov on Thursday. "Then he started to improve in every training, in every match".

Affectionately called Sarri-ball, this free-flowing, easy-on-the-eye football has seen many purring, not least of which is a former Blues stalwart in Ballack and the ex-Germany favourite, who starred at west London for four years in the late 2000s, reckons that Sarri has finally tapped into the attacking capabilities of the Blues.

England 2012 vs New Zealand: Where are they now?
And while England's leading Lions - Owen Farrell , Maro Itoje, Ben Te'o, Elliot Daly, Jamie George - may feel they have inside oil to drawn on, the All Blacks don't appear anxious .


"I think they can play together, but I think Loftus-Cheek has got to play one of the wider roles if Barkley plays, where your [Eden] Hazards, Pedros and Willians are", he added.

'If he's not fit it's a good opening for another player to play in that position'.

Sinclair was watching on and is now anxious that both Barkley and Loftus-Cheek can not play together in midfield for Chelsea since they have similar attributes that do not complement each other.

Republicans maintain grip on the US Senate in midterm vote
Nor are Democrats likely to craft a governing coalition so long as they cleave to the country's increasingly discredited elites. Pelosi is nationally unpopular, and Republicans have often tied Democratic House candidates to her agenda to win races.


"At Chelsea, I knew I'd improve a lot quicker around better players, world-class players".

"I think he's on the way to becoming a very important midfielder, not only in England".

"I like Ross very much". And Loftus-Cheek could be a doubt after picking up a back problem.

Pompeo to meet N. Korea number two on Thursday
Russian Federation and China repeatedly supported the gradual easing of United Nations sanctions against North Korea. It offered no reason, and the North's propaganda services has not mentioned the meeting.


Chelsea are nearly back to full strength after both Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud got minutes under their belt in the Europa League. "If they only play they will lose that physical quality they need, and that's been proved scientifically over a 21-day period". And while Sarri admits his star won't play 90 minutes, there is no risk attached to him being involved. He did not play badly, but he can do better.
