Chelsea's Eden Hazard dropped for Europa League game to manage minutes

Marko Arnautovic suffered a knee injury in West Ham’s victory over Everton

As a result, the Telegraph report that Hazard has been left out of Chelsea's trip to Greece to face PAOK in the Europa League.

Maurizio Sarri's press conference revealed what he thinks about the Chelsea star when he said he is the best player in Europe. Now it is hard because in the first part of the season it is important to play with possibly the same players, just to have a solid team, but I have to change four or five players.

And Hazard is the headline absentee from the 21-man travelling party for Thursday's match against the Greek side.

"He told me that after the national team and after the match against Cardiff he was a little bit exhausted so I thought it was better to stay in Cobham, to have training and to rest".

And, while the likes of Pedro Obiang, Declan Rice and Marko Arnautovic were in superb form for the Hammers, Andriy Yarmolenko was arguably the best player on the pitch.

"Unfortunately, you have to play with 11 players, [and] 17 players tomorrow won't agree with me".

West Ham announced on Monday the England global has had an operation, but while the club's head of medical Richard Collinge did not provide a timetable for the midfielder's return, he indicated Wilshere is not expected to be out for too long.

Asked specifically about Loftus-Cheek's chances of starting in place of Kovacic, Sarri replied: "I don't know about Loftus".

"Tomorrow I have to change four, five players, but it's impossible in this moment of a season to change 11 players for a match".

"What I mean by that is, De Bruyne and Salah were the best players last season". David Luiz has also been left back in London to rest having cemented himself as a regular under Sarri this season. Ampadu, Odoi and Loftus are the future.
