Chelsea’s Sarri unhappy with sorry state of Kiev pitch

Maurizio Sarri has described the Olympic Stadium pitch as "a disaster" and "very dangerous" ahead of Chelsea's Europa League tie against Dynamo Kyiv, with the visitors to consider making an official complaint to Uefa over the state of the playing surface. "It's really very risky for injuries", Sarri told reporters.

Giroud could have added his fourth in added-on time, but Maurizio Sarri will be more than satisfied with a performance which will only strengthen the perception that the Blues are favourites to win this competition.

"Of course, I don't want to stay here talking about this situation, but when they do that, we don't feel good inside the pitch". It's really risky to play any football here in this moment, and I think it's really very unsafe for injuries.

"We scored after five minutes which was a very hard situation for the opponents".

"So, even when the players aren't in good moments or play well, we need the fans to support us until the end of the game".

Chelsea will be without Gonzalo Higuain, who is unwell and remained in London, while Sarri is expected to hand starts to Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ethan Ampadu.

Jorginho has completed more passes than any player in the Premier League this term, but has been stifled by opposition on occasion. Sarri insists he will not keep players against their will. I am not anxious because you know very well my opinion: I want in my team only the players who want to play for Chelsea, so I can not be anxious'. He just wants to continue to play for Chelsea'.
