Sarri said: "Yes of course". He played very well and scored a wonderful goal, Sarri said.

The Blues are due to find out the result of their appeal against a two-window ban next Thursday, although they will still have the opportunity to go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport if Federation Internationale de Football Association uphold their decision.

Sarri also revealed he wants to keep striker Gonzalo Higuain at the club next season, even though the transfer ban may block the club turning his loan from Juventus into a permanent move.

Higuain has scored three times since he joined Chelsea in January - twice against Huddersfield, before notching away at Fulham.

"I think he needs time to improve his condition and be suitable for the Premier League but I think he is able to do it".

Chicago Police open internal investigation into alleged leaks in Jussie Smollett case
TMZ reports they "obtained documents that on the surface back his claim the $3,500 check he wrote to Abel was for training". Meanwhile, Chicago police said the attack was a " publicity stunt " because Smollett was upset with his " Empire " salary.


Hudson-Odoi and Loftus-Cheek both impressed in Chelsea's 3-0 win over Brighton on Wednesday, but Sarri warned fans hoping to see both in action again when West Ham visit Stamford Bridge on Monday that he will need to lean on his squad if he is to succeed in the Premier League and Europa League.

"He [Higuain] has to improve physically and mentally and also that he will be useful for us in the last part of the season".

So it's not easy, especially for a striker, to play immediately well in the Premier League.

"I think we have to fight until the last minute of the last match, but without looking at the other results". At the moment he's in a very good mental and physical condition.

"We want to take it game by game, we have hard games to play in two or three weeks, against Liverpool away and Man United away, but Chelsea is a top club, we like this challenge so we will go to those teams and try to win games. It's not clear the situation", said Sarri.
