Hard to accommodate Loftus-Cheek in first team - Sarri


A move that started with Loftus Cheek in his own half saw Pedro burst down the left flank and, when he was dispossessed, Chelsea's home-grown talent was on hand to guide home his hat-trick goal.

Alonso, capped three times by Spain, has scored 15 goals in 92 appearances for Chelsea and helped the club win the league title in his first season.

The World Cup may seem a long time ago as the United Kingdom winter draws closer but Loftus-Cheek's confident display of attacking link play and near-constant endeavour brought back memories of his best moments for England in Russian Federation.

"(Andreas) Christensen I think will be on the pitch, Loftus (Ruben Loftus-Cheek) maybe".

"At the moment we have four midfielders for two positions".

Chelsea's victory sees them go six clear at the top of the table, with three more games to play. Damn the tactics, mentality, work rate etc etc etc that I keep hearing - bottom line, the boy scores goals, we need goals.

'So first thing's first, I need to keep up the good habits - eating well, sleeping well and training well and if I keep doing that then good things will come'.

The 35-year-old entered the day 4-0 with a 1.15 ERA over his last four postseason starts in which his team faced elimination. After a solid start to the inning with two outs and one hit allowed, things unraveled into a five-run disaster .

"Any player will tell you it's nice to score a hat-trick and it feels good, I'll get the ball signed and put in a glass box".

"This match is not a big problem, because we have to play after five days, from the last match", said Sarri.

Loftus-Cheek is hopeful that more chances will come his way under Sarri after his hat-trick against BATE.

"As I said before, I have a tactical problem with the midfielders".

'The fact that the manager hasn't suggests to me that he won't be starting him at the weekend.

Chelsea will be back in action on Sunday, when they visit Burnley in the Premier League.
