Everton have won three of their last four Premier League games to hoist themselves up to ninth place in the Premier League table. Barkley arrived at Chelsea carrying a hamstring injury and played just four times under Antonio Conte, who Sarri succeeded in July. "He is on the way to becoming a very important midfielder, not only for us but for England".

"Andre has come in and been very good as well, and our left-back (Digne) played for Barcelona".

Arsenal midfielders Matteo Guendouzi and Aaron Ramsey were both visibly upset after Welbeck, who is out of contract at the end of the campaign, went down after jumping to win a header.

'In the first month he was in trouble, ' said Sarri.

At a sparse and chilly Borisov Arena, the hosts started brightly, hitting the post through Dmitri Baga and then seeing Blues" "keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga forced into fine save to deny Stanislav Dragun.

"Our fear is that they are very similar, want to get on the ball, want to travel with the ball", Sinclair said on Chelsea TV.

Barkley anticipates facing some hostility from Everton's visiting supporters, after moving on following 13 years at Goodison Park.

"I am surprised at how quickly he has adapted if I think back to the first month, but not if I think of the last two months".

"I'm not nervous, I'm excited to play against my former club and team-mates - I understand how some of them play, so that could be an advantage for me".
