Chelsea's late Europa League return delays West Ham training plans

Chelsea's late Europa League return delays West Ham training plans

Alvaro Morata had a good chance to double Chelsea's lead two minutes later after meeting Pedro's cross, but his header went just wide of Alexandros Paschalakis' goal.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri provides a positive early update on the shoulder injury suffered by Pedro in Thursday's 1-0 win over PAOK.

Maurizio Sarri chose to leave out Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovavic, although he still fielded a strong line-up that included the likes of N'Golo Kante, Pedro, Willian and Jorginho.

According The Metro, Sarri insisted post-match that it's "probably not a serious injury".

Coach Maurizio Sarri said this game would be the most important for Chelsea's prospects of winning the group but ultimately PAOK, who have also won each of their three opening league games, posed them few problems.

"I haven't spoken to the manager [about it] yet".

The Premier League giants maintained a 69 percent possession of the ball throughout the match, while their pass accuracy was top-notch at 90 percent. We missed several. So I am really very happy with the three points, very happy with the performance I think, but I am not very happy with the result.

Former Liverpool FC defender Carragher highlighted why Giroud is one of the Premier League's most underrated players.

"In Italy, you can play on a Monday night, but not in England".

"But I never see Messi and Ronaldo getting rested, they play all the games and they're the best two in the world". If I got a hat-trick last Saturday I'd want to be playing in the next game.

Chelsea visit London rivals West Ham United in the league on Sunday.
