Loftus-Cheek eyes consistency after hat-trick to earn place

Maurizio Sarri admitted that he is finding Chelsea's large first-team squad a "problem" after Ruben Loftus-Cheek staked a compelling claim for a regular starting spot with a hat trick in Thursday's 3-1 win over BATE Borisov in the Europa League.

Alonso has scored 15 goals in 92 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea and received his first worldwide call-up in March. Into the second half and Loftus-Cheek was at it again with a fine finish to bag his hat-trick and show Sarri that he is worthy of a Premier League start in the near future.

"First of all, as I said after the match, we were wrong", Sarri said.

Sarri said, "At the beginning of the season he was a very good player and now he is a good player that is more suited to my style of football".

"He needs to improve in the defensive phase as he played in a five more, now he plays in a four". But not only Loftus'. Only Kante is a defensive midfielder. Damn the tactics, mentality, work rate etc etc etc that I keep hearing - bottom line, the boy scores goals, we need goals.

Later in the day, authorities in Guatemala said another group of about 1,000 migrants had entered that country from Honduras. Those proposals have not gotten traction among congressional Democrats, who view those changes as anti-immigrant.

"(Andreas) Christensen I think will be on the pitch, Loftus (Ruben Loftus-Cheek) maybe".

The 27-year-old has struggled with more defensive responsibility alongside Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger at the centre of Chelsea FC's defence. "Ask to play 16, 17?"

Sarri did accept that he recognises the responsibility to promote academy players, and England U-17 World Cup victor Callum Hudson-Odoi also featured in the victory.

"I know that the fans love him, of course".

Aside from Hazard, the only confirmed injury absentee is Ethan Ampadu, who remains sidelined for the next week or two with a knee problem.
