  • Barkley: I wasn’t coached much at Everton

Sometimes you can score, sometimes not, but the performance is important.

'It was important to play a good match, I think he did that.

The Italian was reacting to Morata's emotional celebration with Willian when the Spaniard scored Chelsea's winning goal against Vidi in the Europa League at the Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

"At the end of the day the best scorers are Hazard and Pedro, but with the quality of players we have on the pitch, it's not too good".

While the 59-year-old admits that for a club of the stature of Chelsea competing in the Champions League is the real aim, he will be doing everything he can to lift the Europa League trophy next May. We need the other players to help him with scoring.


"I think he can return to the national team".

Asked about Morata's apparent tears, Sarri replied: "I don't know, but if after a goal he wants to cry, I hope to see him cry very often". At the moment we have Alvaro and Giroud, but we have to play every three days for a long time, I think, I hope, and so he's a very important player for us, for our season. "Both, Alvaro and Olivier".

Sarri said that he is keen for each of his players to have featured in at least one match ahead of the upcoming global break, adding: "Maybe tomorrow it is time to see Loftus I think. He is improving week by week", said Sarri.

"I'm playing a big role in the side at the minute and I believe my performances show I'm capable of being in the England squad", said Barkley.

Chelsea has enjoyed early life under new manager Maurizio Sarri, going unbeaten in all competitions since losing to Manchester City in the Community Shield nine matches ago.
