After his impressive hat-trick against Bate Borisov in Europa League Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri praised Ruben Loftus-Cheek who used the chance the manager gave him last night at the best:
“At the beginning of the season he was a very good player, now he is a good player more suitable to my way of football I think,” said Sarri after the game.
“We have a tactical problem with the midfielders because for two positions we have four midfielders and three of them have the same characteristics.
“They are offensive midfielders, only one has other characteristics. Kante is a defensive midfielder.
“So it is very difficult to put in the starting XI two midfielders with the same characteristics.”
