The Blues boss has also challenged his talisman to score 40 goals this season, having already bagged five goals and two assists in five appearances so far.

The England worldwide was tipped for big things at Stamford Bridge this season, but the arrivals of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have seen game time hard to come by for Loftus-Cheek.

"Maybe it's an opportunity I can give him a chance".

Morata was an unused substitute on Saturday as Sarri preferred to start with Olivier Giroud up front for the west London side.

The French World Cup victor proved the flawless foil for Belgian star Eden Hazard and the pair combined to drag the home side back from a goal down in the first half.

Asked if Hazard believes Sarri's claim he can reach 40 goals, Sarri said: "If you have seen Saturday's match, then I think so!"

Sarri admitted he would rotate the two strikers according to the qualities of Chelsea's opposition: "I watched Cardiff four times and thought Giroud was right for this match".

Afterwards Sarri said the Belgian could be the best player in Europe. For characteristics they are different, it depends on the kind of match. "Yes, I think so".

"I think he is right, because we are very risky in the defensive phase, we need to improve there", he said. In his second coming at the West London club, the Brazilian global has gone from being one of the first names on the team sheet to being a peripheral figure to now becoming a regular once again, all in just two years. As a teenager, the Belgian had been a regular part of a good team, but upon turning 20 years of age he reached a level and has been on an nearly exclusively upward trajectory ever since. "We need to improve very quickly, but I think we can do it".

"I'm always happy when I'm playing football I just want to do my best for this club who have done a lot for me".
