Sarri has revealed that Pedro will not feature for Chelsea for at least 10 days with the Spaniard having sustained a hamstring injury against Watford.

The Blues come into the game off the back of a 2-1 win over Watford on Boxing Day.

Th Belgian's contract expires in June 2020 and he's been frequently linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Maurizio Sarri says he is relishing the intense nature of the Premier League's winter schedule, but warns it is "very difficult" to play every three days, Sky Sports reports.

With Hazard making it publicly clear of his admiration and desire to play for Real Madrid in the future, Sarri has acknowledged the situation has dragged on for too long.

"I don't know if Hudson-Odoi is able for the Premier League at 18, especially in a big team", he said.

"Sarri told me before the season started that playing as a number nine could be an option", Hazard told Chelsea's official club website.

Stockpiles Fall, Oil Prices Hold Gains
North Sea Brent crude lost $2.41, or 4.0 percent, to a low of $57.20, a 14-month low, and last traded around $58.06, down $1.55. Supply cuts that began in 2017 by OPEC and its allies had previously erased an inventory overhang that weighed on prices.

David Luiz could be on his way out of the club on a free transfer in the summer, according to the Times (h/t Express).

Sarri, however, warned that losing Fabregas during the season would complicate his job.

"But for me it's very important and if Cesc will go I think that we need to buy another player, and it's not easy because, technically, Cesc is a very important player". "I want him to stay". You have to manage 25/28 players.

"I spoke with the club about this one month ago".

Kovacic became a Chelsea player shortly after playing a part in his country's surprise run to the final of this summer's FIFA World Cup tournament in Russian Federation. "The problem is only this".

The Chelsea boss said, as quoted by the Guardian: "I think that it's time to decide".
