And Sarri, whose side remain unbeaten after nine Premier League games, remains confident that Alonso can become one of the top defenders in the world at Chelsea FC.

Davide Zappacosta sped down the right flank in the second minute and cut the ball back to Loftus-Cheek who provided a clinical finish, steering a first-time shot just to the right of goalkeeper Denis Scherbitski without hesitation.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard will miss Thursday's Europa League Group L home game with Belarusian champions BATE Borisov because of a back injury. It's my first hat-trick for a while, even for the youth team.

Chelsea will have to cough up around 150 million pounds for both players if they plan on landing them in January.

"He's always trying to help me, defensively and position-wise", Loftus-Cheek told Sky Sports News. It's very hard to solve the tactical problem without an improvement in the defensive phase of these three midfielders.

Sarri is particularly spoilt for choice in midfield, where Jorginho and N'Golo Kante appear entrenched as starters with a rejuvenated Ross Barkley, Mateo Kovacic and Loftus-Cheek all competing for the third and final spot. I need an improvement in the defensive phase. If this doesn't say he should play in the PL I don't know what does.

The rest of the group's sides - PAOK Salonika, Vidi and BATE - have three points apiece.

"First of all, as I said after the match, we were wrong", Sarri said.

Sarri said in a press conference: "I'm very happy for him". My problem remains the same.

Though he's done immensely well, grooming the players he inherited from fellow compatriot Antonio Conte and adding a few to add extra depth in his squad, it has been mooted the Blues will need to sign a frontman who is not goal-shy, should they be seen as serious title contenders this season.
