Chelsea boss Sarri uncertain whether Loftus-Cheek will feature

Maurizio Sarri would not confirm if Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek would start against PAOK on Thursday night.

The young midfielder is on the fringes of the first-team and the Europa League is expected to provide him minutes throughout the season.

Sarri said: "Loftus for me is a very good player. But I don't know if there is a spot for him on Thursday. Of course there will be a spot for him in the future.

"It's not important Thursday or in the future. There will be a chance for him."
