Ballack explains simple plan for Chelsea to retain Hazard

Aguero joins Henry & Rooney in 150 club with landmark Man City goal

But the same report claims that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has blocked West Ham's approach.

With that in mind, it could be argued that it would have been good to have played Hazard anyway, but he will feature for other reasons rather than that, as the Italian confirmed when he faced the press.

"[Morata] played for three matches in a row, so I thought it was better to rest at Cobham and have good training".

"It is a bit more flexible now, I would say, with a little bit more freedom to go forward".

It is a remarkable stat for Sarri, who has revolutionised the style of play at Stamford Bridge in a short space of time.

The visitors quickly started to monopolise possession, but despite seeing over 70 percent of the ball in the first half, they failed to even manage a shot on target against a well-drilled BATE outfit.

A possible defensive pairing of Gary Cahill, Andreas Christensen and Emerson Palmieri, with Davide Zappacosta rounding out the defence will most likely be on display tonight as the coach as rested David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso ahead of Sunday's clash with Everton. 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. I think it is the opposite.

"I was lucky. I have very good players, and my players, in the last two months, were able to win also without a great level of organisation from the tactical point of view".

The only competitive fixture between BATE and Chelsea was a fortnight ago in Europa League Matchday 3.

West Ham United could contend for a top half finish if they completed the loan signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek in January.

BATE Borisov have now lost four of their five meetings with English clubs (W1).

Steven Gerrard's Rangers saw their 11-game unbeaten run in this year's Europa League come to a dramatic end as they threw away the lead three times in a 4-3 defeat at Spartak Moscow.
