Sarri hopes to give Hazard more game time at BATE

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri plans on giving Eden Hazard an extended run for tonight’s Europa League Group L match at BATE Borisov

After a three-game absence, Hazard made his return to Chelsea as a second-half substitute in last Sunday’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Now Sarri has included Hazard in his 19-man squad for tonight’s match, where Chelsea hope to secure a fourth straight Europa League win and confirmation of a knockout spot.

But the Italian will be taking a cautious approach with his star player.

“According to our doctor there is not any risk, otherwise he would have stayed at Cobham, of course,” said Sarri on the club website.
