KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Andreas Christensen and Gary Cahill have played together several times in Europe this season and I expect they'll get another chance to impress against POAK tomorrow night.

The Belgian superstar has had to contend with several slight problems in recent months and is now suffering with an ankle complaint.

Chelsea have been flawless so far in the Europa League and Kevin Hatchard expects it to stay that way against a PAOK side who have fallen short in this competition.

"I think, as you know, I want to play a central midfielder as a very technical player - Jorginho or [Cesc] Fabregas", the ex-Napoli boss said. I don't want Kante in this position.

Kante, widely considered the world's best holding midfielder, has a slightly more attacking role in Chelsea's team this season as Sarri looks to accommodate a more creative deep-lying playmaker in new signing Jorginho. But we have to understand why we played against Tottenham without determination. "I don't want Kante in this position". First of all, our target is to be in the first four positions because we want to play in the Champions League, and the Premier League is not very easy to be in the first four. On Monday they were all together, but the situation was similar. "But only for a small percentage, I think".

What Maurizio Sarri must do to stop N'Golo Kante looking 'very average'

PAOK would be eliminated should they lost at Stamford Bridge and Vidi beat BATE Borisov, with the three points seeing the Hungarian side through to the last 32.

Sarri was speaking ahead of Chelsea's Europa League game against PAOK Thessaloniki on Thursday.

The only other doubt for the Blues is versatile wide player Victor Moses who is struggling with a back issue.

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

As much as it appears to be a mere consolation, his goal against the North London club is definitely sounding a warning to Morata - sit up and regain his form as soon as possible or you lose your place in the team - and a message to Sarri - don't look elsewhere, I'm Morata's flawless replacement. One week of training and a couple of matches and he'll be back at the best level of physical condition. We've seen enough of him in this league to do that. "I had a meeting of 10 minutes, five minutes, individual", he said.
