Maurizio Sarri uncertain about Hudson-Odoi's place against Dynamo Kiev

"[Speculation] is not a big problem, the problem is the results".

"I was confident in the past, I am confident now but I want to think only about our performances and our results".

"Chelsea are one of only three sides - also Villareal and Eintracht Frankfurt - still unbeaten in the competition and I can't see past a comfortable win for the Blues as they try and make the last eight of a competition they won back in 2013".

Chelsea host Dynamo Kiev on Thursday in the first leg of their last-16 Europa League tie, with the winners of the competition securing a coveted place in next season's Champions League.

"We were talking about the programme of the next pre-season, so we were trying to organise in the best way the next pre-season", Sarri said on Wednesday.

"It's not important if I'm here next season". Of course we have some players who are very exhausted because the last week was really very hard for us.

"I think that you put too much pressure on the young English players".


Attack: Chelsea are expected to make plenty of changes to their attack as Sarri looks to keep some key men fresh for Sunday's Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The west London side are now in sixth place in the table but they will move above Manchester United and Arsenal into fourth if they can win their game in hand.

"I think we can gain the spot in the Champions League in the Premier League", Sarri added.

"We are fighting. We are only two points [behind fourth-placed Manchester United] at the moment".

Eden Hazard is likely to be given a breather as Chelsea have often protected him in the Europa League this season and they should be confident of beating Dynamo Kyiv at home without their star man.

"At this moment it is very important for him to improve and then he will be able to be at the top when he is 22 or 23".
