Despite Loftus-Cheek having played just 33 minutes for Chelsea in the Premier League this season, Hayes believes the England global is ready to feature more regularly for the first team. "In the offensive phase he was wonderful", the Italian told a news conference.

'I told him at the beginning of the season I thought he was really a very good player.

"I think my debut was still more special, just because you dream of that as a kid".

Chelsea have won all three matches in Group L as they will be traveling to the Eastern European nation to take on the Belorussian side in a return leg in two weeks. It is very hard for me to put in four offensive midfielders of the same character.

Willian then volleyed over the crossbar with an awkward volley and sent a tame attempt down the middle for Scherbitski to deal with, while Loftus-Cheek glanced wide from a promising position from Zappacosta's latest cutback later in the first half.

A move that started with Loftus Cheek in his own half saw Pedro burst down the left flank and, when he was dispossessed, Chelsea's home-grown talent was on hand to guide home his hat-trick goal.

He said: "If I'm him, I'm hoping he takes me off before the 90 minutes is up. It's a little problem and I don't know how to solve it", he said.

Sarri is looking for a more regular goal threat from his midfield, and Chelsea captain Gary Cahill said he was pleased to see Loftus-Cheek show he is ready to meet the need. "I need the co-operation of the player". So it is important to train well, keep your good habits - eat well and sleep well - so that when games like this come along you can be as close to your best physical shape as possible.

That's the view of former Blues midfielder Glenn Hoddle, who says that he is too talented to be sat on the sidelines. "In the future I may be able to put Barkley and Loftus in the same starting XI".
