Chelsea boss Sarri happy to give Ampadu, Loftus-Cheek minutes

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was pleased to count on Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ethan Ampadu for their victory over Europa League opponents Malmo.

Loftus-Cheek returned from injury in the second half and Ampadu was also given some minutes

Sarri said: "We had a lot of problems with Loftus-Cheek in the last two months, he started training with his team-mates only two days ago after a long period with a big back problem. He can improve a lot, also Callum because he's only 18.

"We need to find the right position on the pitch for Ampadu. We are trying him as a midfielder, centre-back, full-back but we have to have a clear idea. Between now and the end of the season we have to decide otherwise it will be difficult for him to improve."
