Sergio Aguero becomes ninth player to score 150 Premier League goals

Cole was speaking ahead of Chelsea's Europa League clash away to BATE Borisov on Thursday, where Kovacic was named on the bench.

The Premier League's all-time leading goalscorer took 212 matches to reach 150 goals in the competition.

In short, City ran through Southampton 6-1 to the point where it was nearly embarrassing for the visitors, with Mark Hughes having to sit and ponder over what could've been against his former club.

BATE started strongly and came within a whisker of taking an early lead as former Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb teed up Dmitri Baga for a long-range strike which crashed against Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga's post.

Manchester City are still a phenomenal football team but these aren't the kind of games that'll tell us that.

When the two clubs battled it out in Stamford Bridge, Ruben Loftus-Cheek netted a hat-trick, to help the Blues claim a 3-1 Chelsea win on the night.

Cesc Fabregas was left out of the 19-man Chelsea squad that travelled to Belarus on Wednesday after suffering a fever, and Sarri revealed Alvaro Morata has stayed in the United Kingdom to rest after his two-goal contribution against Palace.

Maurizio Sarri made seven changes to his starting lineup, but the Premier League side started well at the Borisov Arena without being able to create a clear-cut opportunity.

Last term he played well for Crystal Palace, and has also made his mark at global level.

Marcos Alonso supplied the fine pass that allowed Pedro to score the winning goal for Chelsea in the 70th minute as the Blues won the match 3-1.

The report says that Sarri doesn't want to let Loftus-Cheek leave on loan, but West Ham have to fight for the player.

"He'll be one of those players I think when he's not there, that's when you're not going to notice him".

'It wasn't very easy to play a good game here.

"It was better in the first 20 minutes of the second half but we didn't manage the last 15 minutes well. Tomorrow the best for him is he will play 45, 50 minutes".
