Sarri expecting 'strange results' in race for top four

But Chelsea fell behind in the first half before Kante equalized.

Chelsea will seek to end Burnley's winning run of form as they hope to solidify their chances of a top four finish in the Premier League.

The XIs he's picked in the league has varied game to game, and without knowing whether the coach is really putting the Europa League above the Premier League, it's hard to tell who he would pick if it really came down to it.

Will Chelsea reach the final?

"He played really very well but he needs to recover more than the other players because he is 90 kilos and so after the match he needs time to recover, only for this".

With that, his team selection caused some annoyance among Blues fans, but those apprehensions were immediately cooled after Higuain netted his fourth league goal with a trademark finish. They also won on their last visit to Stamford Bridge at the start of last season but that is their only Premier League away win against one of the big-six in 29 attempts.

In fact, Burnley have now scored more goals against the Blues in west London this term (two) than Man City, Liverpool and Spurs combined (one).

Their two goals may have been rudimentary in approach, but certainly not rudimentary in execution as Hendrick's scintillating volley was a moment of pure instinctive imagination, while Barnes also rifled a thumping close-ranged effort past a hapless Kepa Arrizabalaga.

"I think the media give the Champions League too much importance", said Sarri, who is still struggling to convince Chelsea board he is the one for the future.

The playmaker received some rough treatment by the Slavia Prague players and he was down injured just a few minutes after kick off.

The Blues received a boost for the top four after Arsenal, Tottenham and Arsenal lost at the weekend.

The Italian stressed that despite being the world's premier club competition the Champions League is overhyped.
