Chelsea edge out BATE Borisov to reach last 32 of Europa League

Ex-Blues Midfielder Reckons Sarri has Unlocked Attacking Potential of Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri made seven changes to his starting lineup, but the Premier League side started well at the Borisov Arena without being able to create a clear-cut opportunity.

The win extended the London club's unbeaten streak this season to 17 games. "All these things, added to what he already had, is making him one of the best midfielders in the country".

Both sides struggled to create anything of note during the closing stages of the game, although Sarri did hand Callum Hudson-Odoi the chance to gain more experience in the first team with five minutes remaining.

Olivier Giroud broke his goal-scoring duck after netting the victor in Minsk but Morata has been in fine form of late having scored four goals in his last four Premier League games so he's favourite to lead the line up front on Sunday.

"On the day I might get a few nerves as it will feel a bit odd".

"I think we are a lot more positive than maybe we have been and players like Richarlison are the reason why you think you can go there and get something".

"It was better in the first 20 minutes of the second half but we didn't manage the last 15 minutes well".

The France worldwide headed Emerson's cross in at the near post early in the second period to maintain the Blues' 100% Group L record.

That prompted a strong response from Bate, but Nikolai Signevich struck the left post and Aleksey Rios blazed over from close range as the Blues held on to win.

"It's true that I was hoping to score soon, because I came back late from the World Cup and after I lacked a bit of efficiency and luck sometimes", he said. "He is on the way to becoming a very important midfielder, not only for us but also for England".

"Our fear is that they are very similar, want to get on the ball, want to travel with the ball", Sinclair said on Chelsea TV. "For his confidence it is very important".
