First half: Loftus-Cheek scores. 1-0.

There were rare starts for Emerson, Gary Cahill, Andreas Christensen and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, but that did not hold Chelsea back, who went ahead within just two minutes.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is similarly struggling to make an impact under Sarri and he had several meetings with his manager before deciding to stay over the summer.

Chain-smoking former Napoli boss Sarri is prone to putting a cigarette filter to his mouth on English football's touchlines as he can not light up. I hope to be able to do it in the future.

The Blues bounced back from a 2-2 draw with Manchester United over the weekend at Stamford Bridge to thrash their Russian opponent at the same venue.

Sarri and Ianni both apologised to Mourinho for his actions immediately after the match, and Chelsea's head coach reiterated that he is confident his assistant will learn from his mistake regardless of how he is sanctioned by the FA.


[SiPhillipsSport]Ruben loftus-cheek masterclass tonight ✌ [Bumboclark]Ruben Loftus Cheek has positively surprised me this game scoring not once but three times.

The powerful midfielder swept in calmly after Davide Zappacosta's low cross, taking full advantage of some poor BATE marking.

Sarri was always likely to rest Hazard for the visit of BATE to Stamford Bridge as he rotates his team for the Europa League, but the Italian also said that his superstar's participation at Turf Moor is in doubt.

The high profile game had many talking points with a Man United comeback to Chelsea's late late equaliser to Jose Mourinho getting involved in a touchline fiasco with the Blues support staff.

Rios nodded in captain Igor Stasevich's free-kick at the death, but Chelsea had long since won the night.

Loftus-Cheek cut the cakewalk again after the interval, side-footing home from 20 yards after seizing on a botched BATE clearance.
