"I had to think about everything because, on Saturday, we played very badly, a match without determination".

Hazard was likely to be rested anyway on Thursday, but given his recent recovery from a back problem, the Blues will not risk him.

It wasn't just Kante who came in for some Sarri stick.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho believes that his side need to improve how they defend counter-attacks, after admitting that the Blues "got very stretched" during their defeat against Tottenham on Saturday.

"When he plays deeper, I see a world class midfield player".

"I want to play as a center midfielder a very technical player", Sarri said Wednesday.

After the Spurs game, Sarri held one-on-one meetings with his players adding: "It's very hard for them, I think, to tell me why". "In the manager's philosophy, how he wants us to play, Jorginho is the holding midfielder or Cesc - that's a very important part of our game".

Sarri described Chelsea's performance against Spurs as "a match without determination".

Now playing in advanced areas of the pitch, the French worldwide, who has recently signed a new deal with the west London club, has been utilised in a more offensive role - a decision that Shearer says puzzles him, adding that the midfielder's best position would be further behind in front of the back four, where, on a defensive point of view, Kante is a level above Jorginho. But I don't know.

More than the scoreline it was the manner of the defeat that raised eyebrows as Chelsea were by far second best in what was a thrilling display by Tottenham.

Chelsea will be without Eden Hazard as they look to secure first place in their Europa League group.

Victor Moses is not in contention to make his seventh appearance of the season in all competitions when Chelsea host Chuba Akpom's PAOK in the UEFA Europa League today.

Sarri said: "I am anxious because 25 days ago he had a back injury".

"So I think that he has lost a lot of training. It's normal at the moment he isn't at the top of his physical condition". We've seen enough of him in this league to do that.

"The numbers will be big and I think he's not quite there yet in terms of being a ready-made impact player".
