PAOK Salonika vs. Chelsea - Football Match Report

And although Sarri saw his side as the dominant team, he was disappointed that they did not score more.

"I am enjoying with him, with other players, because the team is really wonderful, talented, and I think we can do great things this season". We were in control of the match. I think we played very well. It was hard for everybody to play against us this evening.

Asked if he will continue to field a significant number of regular starters in the Europa League, Sarri said: "I don't know, because for an English team, the Europa League is a hard competition".

We have to play again in 63 hours, on Sunday morning. It is not a big problem now. It was hard for people to play against us this evening.

It has been suggested that Hazard can fill the central forward position yet with the Belgian star having previously expressed his disdain at playing as a false nine (last season under Conte), Sarri may yet turn to an unlikely option in the current Blues squad to fill in that striker gap in case the Italian decides to bin his two senior forwards at the moment.

Eden Hazard asked for a rest and has been given one, with Pedro and Willian to support Alvaro Morata upfront. "But now, when I see him playing with us every day, every week, he is just incredible".

The 31-year-old has had a productive start to the season, scoring three goals in his first seven matches for the in-form Blues.

"For Odoi I don't know. In this position I am also in the last match played Pedro and Hazard but I have also players like Willian, Moses and so I don't know tomorrow if it is time for Odoi or somebody else", Sarri was quoted by Metro UK as saying. "He was on the ball and was active".
