This Is How Ross Barkley Was Different Against PAOK - Former Chelsea Star

This Is How Ross Barkley Was Different Against PAOK - Former Chelsea Star

Speaking on Wednesday evening ahead of Chelsea's Europa League opener against PAOK, Sarri refused to confirm whether the 17-year-old will play against the Greek giants.

Sarri has been tasked with steering Chelsea FC back into the top four at the very least this term after the west London side finished fifth and won the FA Cup last term. "When it is time to kill the match we have to kill the match".

"'It is a very good help for the team and when this guy plays like this he is very hard to stop".

It's quite common for an exciting young player to come through the ranks at Stamford Bridge, only to spend several years being loaned out to various clubs for regular first team minutes. I expected Prijovic starting, but probably he was injured a few days ago.

"The most important thing here is the team, but I've got to look at my situation and my future as well". I think we played very well. It was hard for everybody to play against us this evening.

Sarri's task now is to ensure his players are physically recovered from their Europa League exertions in time to face West Ham, but one player whose condition he will not have to worry about is Emerson Palmieri.

Morata has lost his place to Frenchman Olivier Giroud and Sarri admitted the Spaniard was in severe need of confidence boost to rediscover his touch in front of goal for the Premier League leaders.

"So there's no arguments from my point of view, hence why I've not seen him [Sarri]". With two goals in two matches.

"The difference I saw with him to when I first saw him at the start of the season was with receiving the ball", Sinclair explained on Chelsea TV. "I hope to qualify before the last one or two matches of the group stage". "In Italy, if I play in Greece on Thursday I can ask to play on Monday night, but I have to play again in 63 hours".
