Chelsea duo set to miss Crystal Palace, Southampton and Nottingham Forest games

Dominic Solanke

Sarri said: "Pedro has an injured hamstring and I think that he will have to rest for about 10 days".

Sarri faced continued questioning from reporters about the decision to move him into the middle, but sees no issue with using Hazard's flexibility to play in both roles.

Hazard is out of contract in 2020 but the Chelsea attacker is yet to re-sign at Stamford Bridge amid ongoing speculation regarding a move to Madrid. "Yes, I am a bit surprised [it has gone on this long]", Sarri admitted before adding, "but I don't know the past so I can't say anything". However, the Blues must consider sending him on loan to another club where he can get regular first-team football.

'I don't like to say I like it, but when people kick me it gives me a feeling that I am too good or they just want to stop me and they can't.

Mattis sends final message to troops as defense secretary
Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan will take over the top civilian job at the Pentagon in an acting capacity. Tom Mattis also says he stands by his brother's decision to resign.

Sarri arrived as a keen tactician and in the 2-1 win against Watford on Boxing Day, his side delivered a lesson in how to escape a high press. Cesc Fabregas is set to be a free agent at the end of the season and has been linked with leaving to join a number of European clubs in January in search of more regular playing time.

So Sarri's debut season has included positives.

"I think we have to solve the problem". Will I sit down with him? I want to speak to him only about his position on the pitch. You have to manage 25/28 players. Introducing an inexperienced player at a time when a club is not on top is rare. "The problem is only this".

Goalkeeper: I don't think there is much debate over who will start in goal as summer signing Kepa is certain to retain the gloves ahead of Willy Caballero this weekend. "It's a rule so we have to respect it".
