Sarri confirms Eden Hazard will play against BATE Borisov

Xherdan Shaqiri was at the centre of controversy when he and a teammate celebrated goals with a pro Kosovo

'It was really very hard to be unsafe.

Chelsea managed to scrape past BATE Borisov on Thursday night to seal their progression to the knockout stages of the Europa League. "It's very important because then we can talk again about this competition in February, when we will have another target".

He brings things that no one else now does for West Ham, such as drive and aggression, as well as good technical ability.

Loftus-Cheek was linked with a number of clubs over the summer, but stayed put to fight for a regular starting berth under Maurizio Sarri.

'I think we could have done better.

He explained: "Today I was in trouble, too".

BATE, comfortably beaten last month in London, struck the woodwork three times, including deep in stoppage time, and Eden Hazard's services were required for longer than anticipated in Belarus.

Salzburg, semi-finalists last season, qualified for the next round with a 5-2 thrashing of Rosenborg in the group's other match, with Japanese forward Takumi Minamino scoring a hat-trick.

Giroud netted early in the second half.

Chelsea went straight onto the front foot after the restart - presumably after some stern words from Sarri - and the visitors found the breakthrough in the 52nd minute as Giroud directed a glancing header inside the near post after meeting Emerson's cross from the left flank.

Giroud told BT Sport: "It's true, I was hoping to score soon because I came back late from the World Cup and lacked a bit of luck. You always have to work hard and keep the faith". The Blues are now six points clear of the three other teams in Group L with just nine points to play for and a win would see them unreachable for the team in third.

'But I know very well that strikers want to score.

On Giroud ending his goal drought, Sarri added: "I am pleased for him".

"I think it's better for him to stay fit, with two or three training sessions, than only with matches".

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