Chelsea Manager Mauricio Sarri Provides Update On Sickening Pedro Injury


"In this position I am also in the last match played Pedro and Hazard but I have also players like Willian, Moses and so I don't know tomorrow if it is time for Odoi or somebody else", Sarri was quoted by Metro UK as saying. "I've spoken with the doctor, but only for a few seconds".

Alvaro Morata endured a torrid night in front of goal, missing a hat-trick of good chances in the first half before being replaced by Olivier Giroud near the end.

Maurizio Sarri has allayed fears over Pedro's injury following Chelsea's 1-0 victory over PAOK in their Europa League opener.

"I hope for him that in the future I can try to help him, but the confidence can come only with goals".

The England U17 World Cup winning winger has made just only five appearances for Chelsea's first team in 2018 since his debut against Newcastle United in the Premier League. We had a lot of opportunities.

"Alvaro has to gain confidence with one, two, three goals", head coach Morata said. 'I am not able to give him confidence. So I am really very happy with the three points, very happy with the performance I think, but I am not very happy with the result.

The Blues lost the 31-year-old in added-on time following a collision with the opposition goalkeeper to put a slight dampener on an otherwise positive evening in their opening Europa League group match. It was hard for everybody to play against us this evening.
