Chelsea to limit Hazard role as Morata and Fabregas miss BATE trip

EPL: Big win takes Man City back to top spot

EPL: Big win takes Man City back to top spot

With that in mind, it could be argued that it would have been good to have played Hazard anyway, but he will feature for other reasons rather than that, as the Italian confirmed when he faced the press.

Only time will tell if the imposing Englishman's heroics will see him play more minutes in the Premier League, but he will surely be given a regular stating berth during Chelsea's Europa League campaign.

And if you're not yet a BT Sport subscriber, just choose your preferred option from our wide range of sign-up packages and we'll get you live for Chelsea v BATE Borisov in less than 15 minutes.

Michael Ballack believes Maurizio Sarri has finally found the key to unlocking Chelsea's attacking qualities this season.

BATE Borisov hit the woodwork three times in Belarus, where Giroud ended his drought seven minutes into the second half with a near-post header from a left-wing cross by Emerson Palmieri, who had been found by Jorginho's pass.

Apart from this spectacular string of results, Sarri has also introduced a more enterprising brand of football at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard is the surprise inclusion in Sarri's Matchday squad having missed the previous three matches, but Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas have not been risked.

He had been planning to settle in Istanbul and marry his Turkish fiancee when he was detained and killed in the Saudi Consulate. The kingdom insisted for weeks that the writer, who had been a critic of the Saudi government, had walked out of the consulate.

"We defended very well and they defended cohesively so it was hard to find solutions at times and stop them on the break".

BATE coach Alyaksey Baha, the older brother of midfielder Dmitri, was left holding his head in his hands after Aleksey Rios blazed an even better chance to equalise over the bar. And so, for his confidence, I think it's very important.

'I think we could have done better.

For Bate Borisov, Vladislav Malkovich and Vladislav Mukhamedov are sidelined for the fixture.

Andreas Christensen was among those brought into the Chelsea side.

The Blues can reach the Europa League knockout stage tonight.
