Sarri's assistant boss Gianfranco Zola on Tuesday admitted Chelsea were admirers of striker Callum Wilson, but Sarri says he is keen not to upset Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe.

Chelsea scraped into the EFL Cup semi-finals as Eden Hazard's late goal secured a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Bournemouth on Wednesday. "We have four midfielders [not including Drinkwater] and three of them have the same characteristics".

Eden Hazard is a "magical" footballer, according to Chelsea teammate Ross Barkley.

Bournemouth looked unsafe on the break and Callum Wilson ran through on goal in the 17th minute but pulled his shot wide.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek looked certain to break the deadlock early in the second half after rounding two players but his shot flew inches past Boruc's post.

But then Chelsea swooped, signing him for £35 million.

Miss Philippines Catriona Gray , 24, was crowned the 2018 Miss Universe on Sunday at IMPACT Muang Thong Thani in Thailand. The Miss World organization also congratulated her for her win and said that Miss Universe has "a great victor ".

"There isn't the best position for Hazard", Sarri said.

"I hope Vardy can be fit for this match and can find his qualities", said Puel, whose mid-table team have gone four games without a win in all competitions.

The difference was the changes that we made.

Another player who caught Zola's eye was England midfielder Loftus-Cheek. "Won everywhere. So I like him very much as a coach and as a man", said Chelsea boss Sarri. With the strength of their squad and football club, the one thing Pep Guardiola might be pleased with is that he won't have to risk too many players. Towards the end he was getting exhausted but still he was disciplined and he gave the team a hand.

"He is a very good midfielder, but is suited to playing with two midfielders". I think whatever the score in the first leg people will want to watch Manchester City at the Pirelli Stadium.
