Chelsea have an Europa League clash against MOL Vidi FC on Thursday evening as the Blues aim to win another Europa League trophy.
In Chelsea’s first game against PAOK, the Blues won the game 1-0 away in Greece, but couldn’t beat West Ham the weekend following as the Hammers held Chelsea to a goalless draw at the London Stadium.
Ahead of Chelsea’s game against Vidi FC on Thursday, reporters raised up fears whether the game will affect the side’s weekend clash against Southampton.
Sarri however disagreed and didn’t think his team’s performance will be affected on Sunday.
Sarri said: “I don’t think at West Ham we didn’t win because of the match in Greece. We changed a lot of players so I don’t think the reason was that.
“Of course tomorrow we need to change some players because we have spent a lot of mental and physical energy in two games against Liverpool, and after tomorrow we have to play another game in about 60 to 62 hours so we need to change.”
Sarri however revealed that he could make up to seven changes for the Europa League clash.
He said: “I think tomorrow every player is available but I have to change five, six or seven players. I don’t know yet, I want to see the training this afternoon and the last training tomorrow morning.”
