Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri have a chance to go level on points with Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp’s men were held to a 1-1 draw in their Premier League fixture against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.
The Italian manager gave an important injury update also on Blues’ star Eden Hazard ahead of the upcoming clash between Chelsea and Crystal Palace (kick-off time 4PM GMT) at Stamford Bridge.
Sarri told journalists: “Yesterday Eden had a large part of the training with the team.
Maybe he will not be ready to play for 90 minutes at the moment, because it was the first training in the last two weeks, but probably he will be able to play for 40, 45 minutes”.
He added: “I will speak to him before deciding whether he starts. For us it’s important.”
