Under fire Kante

We have to improve.

Pressed on whether Hudson-Odoi is good enough to start Premier League fixtures, Sarri responded: 'I don't know if he is able at 18, especially in a big team'.

Khacheridi was forced to hack down the former Arsenal striker and was shown a red card by Kristo Tohver inside the opening seven minutes, making a tough task for PAOK all the more hard. As the last man, he could have had few complaints when the referee showed the red card.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has passed blame to his team-mates after losing to Tottenham at the weekend.

"When he is on the left he has to stay very close to Jorginho". "Four goals plus a clean sheet, a good night for us".

Sarri described Chelsea's performance against Spurs as "a match without determination". The 18-year-old beat goalkeeper Alexandros Paschalakis at the near post after being allowed a generous amount of space by the PAOK defence.

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is considering a departure from Stamford Bridge, less than six months after being offered a five-year contract at the club.

Chelsea maintained their flawless record in Europa League with the win at Stamford Bridge and have secured top spot in Group E.

FW Olivier Giroud, 8 - Did everything here to embolden those who argue he should start over Morata in the games that matter. Morata and Giroud are engaged in healthy competition to start for the Blues. I couldn't believe it when I scored, to see the crowd jumping was a dream. Took both of his goals brilliantly - that's five in his last five for club and country now - in addition to doing all of the little things to make his teammates better.

"I want to see a reaction tomorrow (Thursday) and on Sunday".

All signs suggest he is ready.

Apart from being the first defeat of the season, this was also the first time during the campaign that Maurizio Sarri's team have looked so dysfunctional and disjointed.

Defeat saw Chelsea drop down to fourth in the Premier League. Subs: Varela 6, Pelkas 5, Warda 6.

On the right, we expect Pedro to get a game from the beginning. The Frenchman finishes low with his first touch from around 18 yards. His assist for Giroud's second goal was particularly breathtaking.
