Chelsea heed Liverpool's Belgrade woes as Bate Borisov away test beckons

Chelsea heed Liverpool's Belgrade woes as Bate Borisov away test beckons

They are just a point behind North London rivals Tottenham, who have also started well.

Eden Hazard will play at most 50 minutes of Chelsea's Europa League match at BATE, but Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas have not travelled with the squad.

On Sunday afternoon, it was business as usual for Manchester City and Chelsea as the pair both picked up convincing wins in gameweek 11 of the Premier League.

"What he is doing for Manchester City now... we always talk about Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne, but he is now in that company".

Liverpool beat their Champions League opponents Red Star Belgrade 4-0 at home a fortnight ago but switched off in the return leg this week and were comprehensively beaten in Serbia. In a season that promises so much, Guardiola's men are on course to better last term's incredible achievements.




"I watched the game and Liverpool struggled a lot", Mateo Kovacic said.

West Ham beat Burnley 4-2, Tottenham held firm for a 3-2 victory away at Wolves and Manchester United fought back from a goal down to win 2-1 away at Bournemouth. Herrera's entry into the match allowed Jose Mourinho's side more control, but the result was still in the balance until Rashford got on the end of Paul Pogba's cross. Yet Sarri took advice from his medical and sports science staff and has opted to grant the striker a few days working at the training ground, offering Olivier Giroud, who has not scored for Chelsea since a victor against Liverpool on 6 May, an opportunity to feature.

"We know that to get to that chance, you have to get the three points like we did against Crystal Palace".

"We thought for him it's better to play, not for 90 minutes, but to play after two weeks without training".

Asked if it would be better to play Morata to help maintain his resurgent form, the Italian added: "No". There is a chance Hazard could start and be taken off at half time but I think he's more likely to introduce him from the bench.
