Asked if it would be better to play Morata to help maintain his resurgent form, the Italian added: "No".

Eden Hazard flew out with the squad from Gatwick Airport and is expected to play at least 50 minutes.

Manchester City and Chelsea ensures the pace remains relentless at the top of the table with a pair of wins today.

Liverpool beat their Champions League opponents Red Star Belgrade 4-0 at home a fortnight ago but switched off in the return leg this week and were comprehensively beaten in Serbia. "I want to win with this team and I think we have a very good chance this year".

Morata scored a brace for the Blues during the weekend as they sailed to a 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace, which seemingly marked a change in fortunes for the Spaniard, who was strongly criticised for his performances last season.

"I need to work a lot to be like them".

The Premier League title race this season may be one of the most keenly contested in recent times as teams continue to breathe down each other's neck for the top position.


The visitors at least ended their five-game goal drought on the half-hour mark. We are still unbeaten and we haven't played at our highest level yet, because we've been with the coach only two or three months.

The Blues - who are now unbeaten - climbed above Liverpool into second place after their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Chelsea lock horns with BATE Borisov in Belarus tomorrow evening, and we reckon Maurizio Sarri's going to make wholesale changes once again.

"From our doctor there is no risk, otherwise he would stay at Cobham [training ground]", said Sarri.

Attack: Eden Hazard has travelled with the squad to Belarus and Sarri has confirmed he will give the Belgian global 45 minutes tomorrow.

Tottenham trail Inter by 3 points ahead of the Italians' visit to London, and now occupy third spot in the group with a win, a draw and two losses so far.

But what three match takeaways can be drawn from a dark afternoon for the football club?
