'He's improving. In the last month he's been great in training, ' he said. "He has been able to train after the problem with the back".

"For me, now, the next match is very important, and the next match in Liverpool against Everton".

"The potential of Loftus-Cheek is very high".

The midfield sees Ruben Loftus-Cheek being handed a start alongside Mateo Kovacic and N'Golo Kante, with Jorginho provided a rest and Ross Barkley not risked, for the English global is one yellow card away from suspension. If I was him, and I am not getting game time, and seeing Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson flying in Germany, other young players who are getting game time in teams who I would consider myself better than, I'd be gone.

"That's why I score maybe less goals in the championship (Premier League)". "I'm happy for him, but he has to keep the feet on the ground because he can improve more".

Oil futures steadied on Tuesday on signs that OPEC plans to maintain production cuts despite pressure from U.S. President, whose comment criticizing rising crude prices sent the market into a tailspin a day earlier.

Sarri was equally delighted with the performance of his side, who did not let their 3-0 lead coming into the match deter them from equalling their biggest European away win since the 1970s, scoring five on the night in Ukraine without reply.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has impressed in the Europa League this season, and has three goals and an assist in seven games.

Giroud completed his treble before the hour mark, and goals from Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi mean that Chelsea progress through to the quarter-finals by an 8-0 aggregate scoreline.

It is very easy to see why Hudson-Odoi may be tempted to move to Germany especially when you consider the success that Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho and Hoffenheim's Reiss Nelson have enjoyed.

"I don't understand why UEFA gives so much attention to everything like the players' list.and then we have to play in such a bad pitch", the 60-year-old said.
