Sarri news conference: live updates as Chelsea boss talks Liverpool, Loftus-Cheek, injury news and more

More on Hazard

He’s unique. It’s very difficult to compare him to another player.

Injury update on Pedro, Christensen and Loftus-Cheek
Christensen was not injured, he only had stomach ache during the match. Pedro yesterday had the last part of the training with the team like Rudiger and Loftus-Cheek. We need to see the last training.

View on Klopp
He’s one of the best coaches in the world at the moment. He did very well last season with his players. They are ready to win maybe the Premier League or Champions League.

Is Rudiger fit?
I don’t know. Yesterday he had training in the second part with the team. We need to see the last training. There’s the possibility to recover.

Have you spoken to Cahill about his future?
I’ve spoken with him. There’s October, November and December, so he has to wait. I was very happy with the performance of Cahill.

You expecting a different game to the one on Wednesday?
Of course. It’s a different competition with a different starting XI.

More on Hazard
He has the opportunity to improve more. Technically he’s the best. I want him to be the best in the world.

Will it be difficult to leave Fabregas and Cahill out?
Fabregas and Cahill played 90 minutes after a long time, so I’m not sure if they’re ready to play another 90 minutes. They will be very useful for me over the season.

Do you find it strange they’ve never won the Premier League?
Yes. It’s very strange. Now they are ready.

An advantage over Liverpool after the win?
I don’t think so. Maybe they can increase their determination after Wednesday. It will be a difficult match tomorrow. I think they are ready now to win the Premier.

Best player you’ve coached?
It’s very difficult to compare. He’s a genius. He’s unique.

Is Hazard the best player in the world at the moment?
He is one of the best. I’m absolutely convinced he can improve. I think we’ve only seen 75-80% of his potential. If he can improve, he can be the best in the world.
