Sarri explains decision to leave out in-form Morata

Hazard, though, has traveled to Belarus despite speculation that the Belgian would be handed a rest for the Group L fixture following a back problem. In a season that promises so much, Guardiola's men are on course to better last term's incredible achievements.

The Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed that he believes Chelsea will be overtaking Manchester City on this particular date in order to dethrone them as table toppers.

"Last season, there were suggestions Liverpool were becoming predictable but because they were playing so well, it was hard to stop".

Tottenham moved above Arsenal into fourth place thanks to a 3-2 win away to Wolves, but were made to suffer in a game they had been leading 3-0 thanks to goals from Eric Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane.

"The most important thing is that, finally, my mentality is OK".

"We are ready. We have nine points from three games so far, so we're doing well".

Kovacic, who is on loan at Chelsea from Real Madrid, urged his team to avoid a repeat of Liverpool's toil: 'I watched the game and Liverpool struggled a lot.

Alvaro Morata has been in good goalscoring form.

César Azpilicueta insists Chelsea have what it takes to challenge for the Premier League under Maurizio Sarri.

That is thanks to their incredible defensive record, which has seen them concede just three goals in their first 10 matches to leave them on a par with the great Chelsea side of 2004-05. It's scientifically proven. So, today he did some aerobic training and tomorrow he will have some "force" training.

"From our doctor there is no risk, otherwise he would stay at Cobham [training ground]", said Sarri. We thought that, for him, it's better for him to play after two weeks without playing.

David Silva slammed home their third from Sane's flick-on after 18 minutes but Danny Ings did pull one back from the spot after Ederson brought him down in the area.
