Marcos Alonso extends Chelsea deal until 2023

He has only made five appearances this season, with two coming in the Premier League.

Star playmaker Eden Hazard remains doubtful for Chelsea's Premier League clash with Burnley this weekend as he continues to struggle with a back injury, Blues manager Maurizio Sarri said on Wednesday.

"He has a back problem and we are trying to solve the problem for Sunday".

The Real Madrid youth product netted seven times and produced three assists to prove that he wasn't a one-season wonder.

Chelsea full back Marcos Alonso has reportedly signed a new deal to remain at Chelsea until 2023.

Moses is behind Eden Hazard, William and Pedro in Sarri's pecking order of wingers and has found playing opportunities hard to come by this season, with only one start from a possible 13.

'I hope to be able to do it in future, but I need the co-operation of the players. It's time to rest him.

This will be Chelsea's first meeting with Belarusian opposition.

Sarri has repeatedly challenged Loftus-Cheek to improve his tactical awareness if he wants to force his way into the Chelsea starting side, but the Italian was effusive in his praise of the 22-year-old's attacking performance against BATE.

Moses, who represented Nigeria at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation before the team crashed out from the group stage.

Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic started in Chelsea's midfield three against Manchester United on Saturday, but it was substitute Ross Barkley that rescued a last-minute 2-2 draw while Loftus-Cheek was not in the squad.

BATE's win at MOL Vidi on matchday one ended a run of 12 away games without a win in major European competition, excluding qualifiers (D2, L10).
