Sarri is adamant Hazard is fit enough to play some part of the Europa League clash

Sarri is adamant Hazard is fit enough to play some part of the Europa League clash

"But, I don't want him to be anxious about scoring, because for us he's very important, very useful".

"I had fever", Sarri said.

Giroud was back among the goals with the victor in Thursday's 1-0 win against BATE Boris in the Europa League - his first goal of the current campaign.

Former Germany global Ballack reckons Chelsea will not only have to fork out a huge amount of money to keep the talented 27-year-old, but they will also need to convince him that they can continue to challenge for major honours.

"I know very well a striker wants to score".

"I think they can play together, but I think Loftus-Cheek has got to play one of the wider roles if Barkley plays, where your [Eden] Hazards, Pedros and Willians are", he added. "That's what I'm hoping is going to be the case here as well".

However, they could not make an impact against Arsenal or Manchester United this season and a trip to face an unbeaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday is arguably the toughest assignment so far.

Having won the title for the first time in 2013 under former manager Rafael Benitez - barely a year after the club won the Champions League under Roberto Di Matteo.

Richarlison, 21, has been ever present in Everton's starting XI since completing a £35million move from Watford in the summer and only Eden Hazard, Sergio Aguero and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have scored more league goals than the forward (6) this season.

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. A little bit more freedom in certain positions in the pitch.

And things are looking good for Maurizio Sarri in terms of injury news too, with a fully fit squad at the moment.

"We didn't play very well".
