Chelsea edge out BATE Borisov to reach last 32 of Europa League

Barkley, who will face his old club Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, had a hard start to life in London after his January transfer but found his best form under Sarri. And Loftus-Cheek could be a doubt after picking up a back problem.

Richarlison bagged a brace against Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend, but he did seem to pick up an injury in that match and it could be that his absence from training has come as a result of that.

Jonathan Pearce: November 1994.

The Toffees have a rotten record at the stadium, failing to win on any of their last 23 Premier League visits, dating all the way back to 1994.

The victory also sent Chelsea into the last-32 of the Europa League. Marco Silva has lost all six of his league games in London.

If City lose and Chelsea beat Everton, Maurizio Sarri's side will overtake them for top spot.

Chelsea went straight onto the front foot after the restart - presumably after some stern words from Sarri - and the visitors found the breakthrough in the 52nd minute as Giroud directed a glancing header inside the near post after meeting Emerson's cross from the left flank.

But his team had a wearying week and Everton look good.

"We didn't play very well". The Englishman was phenomenal in October and was robbed of the Premier League player of the month award by Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

More shoddy Chelsea defending led to another let-off for them on the hour mark, this time when Alexei Rios missed a glorious chance to equalise when he fired over. I think we didn't play very well, I didn't like the first half because we moved the ball only horizontally and slowly, so it was hard to be risky. "I am sure we will improve this form".

However, the 27-year-old has been stalling on signing a new contract at Stamford Bridge for the best part of a year and he has made no secret of the fact it is his childhood dream to one day play for Spanish giants Real Madrid.
