BATE Borisov: Maurizio Sarri to hand player 12th consecutive start

The Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed that he believes Chelsea will be overtaking Manchester City on this particular date in order to dethrone them as table toppers.

In short, City ran through Southampton 6-1 to the point where it was nearly embarrassing for the visitors, with Mark Hughes having to sit and ponder over what could've been against his former club.

Premier League champions Manchester City will look to reclaim the top spot when they welcome strugglers Southampton to the Etihad Stadium this afternoon.

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has been included in the squad for Thursday's Europa League match at BATE Borisov.

While the lack of mention for Chelsea is baffling considering the impressive start made by Maurizio Sarri's side, it is seemingly a fair assessment from Carragher.

Chelsea will be without Cesc Fabregas, who is unwell and remained in London, as well as Alvaro Morata who has been rested. "I don't know how long it will take us but we're doing very well because the team has great talent and we can already do a great season this year". "Tomorrow the best for him is he will play 45, 50 minutes".
