"At the beginning of the season he [Loftus-Cheek] was a very good player and now he is a good player that is more suited to my style of football". Only Kante is a defensive midfielder.

While his last goal for Chelsea came two years before that one, away at Aston Villa in the Premier League. "In the offensive phase he was wonderful", the Italian told a news conference.

The 26-year old Spain global began life at Stamford Bridge in fine form, but after honeymoon phase wore off, the former Real Madrid and Juventus forward has struggled to consistently score goals for the London club.

The England global completed his brace from a corner-kick as Loftus-Cheek sneaked in to steal the shot and it was 2-0 to Chelsea.

Ronaldo grabs goal for Juventus vs. Genoa
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fifth goal for Juventus but Genoa rallied to claim a 1-1 draw in Serie A on Saturday. Ronaldo is set to feature at Old Trafford following his one-game ban in the European competition.

Asked if Sarri had improved him, he said: "Definitely, but I'll always improve as a player day by day, technically and tactically from training". Damn the tactics, mentality, work rate etc etc etc that I keep hearing - bottom line, the boy scores goals, we need goals.

Sarri has found a winning formula in Europe without fielding his preferred strongest line-up and will have been delighted to see the likes of Loftus-Cheek and Gary Cahill step up while Eden Hazard and David Luiz were rested. "It's a little problem and I don't know how to solve it", he said.

'The fact that the manager hasn't suggests to me that he won't be starting him at the weekend. It's very hard to solve the tactical problem without an improvement in the defensive phase with these three midfielders.

Sarri's men will now switch attention to remaining unbeaten in the Premier League when they visit Burnley on Sunday.
