Sarri confirms Eden Hazard will play against BATE Borisov

Milan Pavkov scores twice as Red Star Belgrade stun Liverpool

The Blues secured qualification for the Europa League last-32 on Thursday night, edging out their opponents 1-0 in Belarus to keep up their 100 per cent record in the competition.

This evening's game provides an opportunity for Maurizio Sarri's men to reach the knockout stages of the Europa League. "I had fever", Sarri said.

'I was approaching 25 and I felt looking back I could have improved a lot more, ' Barkley added.

The goal opened Giroud's account under the Italian and was his first for Chelsea since May.

As a result, Sarri believes it is best for him to play in Borisov and regain his rhythm.

Giroud quipped he contemplated seeking religious help, prior to ending a run of 794 minutes without a Chelsea goal. "I thought it was better for him to stay at Cobham and rest and have only training".

'It wasn't very easy to play a good game here.

"In the second half I thought we did better, obviously, we had enough chances to get back into the game, but we didn't take them and you get punished".

Both sides were the beneficiaries of comical own goals in a insane first half which ended with Glenn Middleton putting the Scots 3-2 ahead, but Luiz Adriano and Sofiane Hanni both scored in the space of 71 seconds to snatch Spartak victory.

"I know very well a striker wants to score".

Markovic looked destined to leave Anfield in the summer and was close to finalising a permanent move to Anderlecht after spending the second half of last season on loan with the Belgian side and even travelled to Brussels on deadline to put the finishing touches to the deal.

"I think Liverpool underestimated us and consequently paid for that mistake".

'But I don't want him to be anxious about scoring because, for us, he's very important and very useful.

The Belgium global has played only 26 minutes in the Blues' last four games after suffering the back problem against Manchester United last month, coming on as a second-half substitute in Saturday's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.
