Maurizio Sarri hopeful that Pedro can make quick Chelsea return from injury

Chelsea return to the Europa League for the first time since winning the competition back in 2013, when they visit PAOK for their Group L clash on Thursday.

The FA Cup champions have been superb since the start of the season having won their first five games in the EPL despite facing Arsenal earlier in the season.

The Blues managed to carve out a chance 10 minutes into the second half as Morata's effort ricocheted into the path of Willian who failed to fire past - close range.

Sarri introduced Olivier Giroud for Alvaro Morata in the 80th minute in search for more goals to seal the game.

'Alvaro has to gain confidence with one, two three goals, ' he said.

Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said in a statement Monday. Marie Harf added that Trump seems to be selective in the documents he'd like to be declassified.

'In this match he had three or four opportunities. But the confidence can come with goals.

Greek authorities say two Chelsea fans were injured in an attack by suspected local fans ahead of a Europe League match at PAOK Thessaloniki.

'I spoke for a few seconds, but that probably it is not a serious injury.' Sarri was happy with how his team controlled proceedings but expressed his frustration at not killing the match. "He was on the ball and was active".

'I don't know. The problem is shoulder, but I don't know exactly the situation, ' Sarri said. "We didn't kill the match".

Willian went on to claim that he never considered leaving the club amidst all the rumours that came to light during the summer and insisted that it is an honour to be playing football for a club like Chelsea.
