The England global has become a regular under Sarri, scoring three goals in his last five Chelsea appearances.

It also maintained the Blues' 100% record in the Europa League this season and their unbeaten record in all competitions under boss Maurizio Sarri.

Everton have won three of their last four Premier League games to hoist themselves up to ninth place in the Premier League table.

But Sarri admitted: "At the beginning, in the first month, Ross was in trouble".

That's right. No gaffer in the history of the Premier League era has ever gone 12 matches unbeaten at the start of a tenure. It's not easy for me and I think it's not very easy for them.

Sinclair was watching on and is now anxious that both Barkley and Loftus-Cheek can not play together in midfield for Chelsea since they have similar attributes that do not complement each other. Because Ruben in the first part of the season had two or three little injuries.

"I know very well a striker wants to score". He is a complete player.

Hamilton is hoping he can bounce back to competitiveness this weekend, after two races in which Mercedes have struggled for pace. He said, however, that it was still tough to find time to switch off and recover.

"Sometimes it's better for the players to train rather than just play, to train on some particular physical qualities". I think we didn't play very well, I didn't like the first half because we moved the ball only horizontally and slowly, so it was hard to be unsafe. He's improving in moving the ball, mentally quicker.

"I think he's on the way to becoming a very important midfielder, not only in England".

Sarri will make a host of changes again for the visit of Everton after one of the poorest performances under his command in Belarus.

Chelsea are nearly back to full strength after both Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud got minutes under their belt in the Europa League.

Lawrenson added: "It was a good day for Morata, but he has had plenty of bad days too, and he needs to repeat that kind of form in the next 10 games to prove himself".

Despite the knock, Richarlison played on for the full 90 minutes at Goodison Park and scored goals either side of the break in the win.
