GETTY Eden Hazard is being rested in Chelsea's Europa League trip to PAOK tonight

Sarri's task now is to ensure his players are physically recovered from their Europa League exertions in time to face West Ham, but one player whose condition he will not have to worry about is Emerson Palmieri.

"What pleased me most, though, was the way we reacted in the second half after Everton scored to make it 2-1 right on half-time", Noble said.

Cesc Fabregas made a comeback from what Sarri described as an "unusual injury" from just below his knee, as he came off the bench in the Europa League.

And having made five changes from Saturday's 4-1 win against Cardiff, the way Sarri's side controlled virtually all of the contest suggests they have a squad capable of mounting a serious challenge at home and overseas this season.

Lucas Ocampos opened the scoring early for Marseille, who were playing behind closed doors at the Stade Velodrome after numerous crowd incidents last season.

Unfortunately for them, we have a fully rested Eden Hazard at our disposal.

West Ham have a number of absentees on the long term treatment table.

Jack Wilshere joined the injured list at West Ham for the first time after signing from Arsenal, as he requires surgery for an ankle problem.

Javier Hernandez is expected to miss the Chelsea clash due to an illness and this could be the most worrying concern for Manuel Pellegrini given that Marko Arnautovic is also dangling with his fitness.

The Blues had planned to fly out straight after Thursday's 1-0 win at PAOK.

Chelsea are set to visit West Ham United in a London derby on Super Sunday, ahead of which gathered that Moses has set his mind on finally adding to a paltry nine minutes of action he has seen so far under Sarri.

West Ham head into the game following a 3-1 victory over Everton in their last Premier League encounter. "I hope to qualify before the last one or two games".
