Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has explained why striker Alvaro Morata has not travelled with the rest of the squad to Belarus for the Europa League clash with BATE Borisov, insisting the Spaniard needs a rest after his heavy involvement of late.
Maurizio Sarri has blocked an approach from West Ham United to try and sign Chelsea FC midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek in January on loan, according to reports in the British media.

AC Milan stayed just a point adrift of Group F leaders Real Betis after Suso's second-half equaliser grabbed a 1-1 draw in Spain.
Sarri's side should be delighted to continue the unbeaten start to the campaign, but a number of fringe players failed to make a serious impact on their chance in the starting XI.
"From our doctor, there is no risk [to select him]", Sarri said.

BATE, comfortably beaten last month in London, struck the frame of the goal three times, including deep in stoppage time, and Eden Hazard's services were required for longer than anticipated in Belarus.
Giroud struck moments later, heading in Emerson Palmieri's cross at the near post. I think we didn't play very well, I didn't like the first half because we moved the ball only horizontally and slowly, so it was hard to be risky.
'We felt that for him it's better to play, not for 90 minutes, but to play after two weeks of not playing. I think it is 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, very useful".
