Maurizio Sarri's first season as Chelsea head coach can still yield a trophy.

"We played a final against Manchester City in the League Cup and before the final in the League Cup we played against Liverpool and Tottenham, the two finalists of the Champions League.

However, there are no return dates set at present for Gary Cahill (Achilles) or Ethan Ampadu (back), with Marco van Ginkel, who hasn't featured at all this season, also in the same boat due to his knee injury.

It was really very difficult, every match is really very difficult."

The Blues face London rivals Arsenal in the Europa League final on May 29 in Baku, Azerbaijan, offering the Italian tactician a chance to make up for defeat on penalties in the Carabao Cup final earlier in the season.

The midfielder had surgery on the issue on Thursday evening and now looks set to be out for several months, although no timeframe has yet been put on when exactly he will return to action With Ross Barkley or Mateo Kovacic now set to replace Loftus-Cheek in the starting XI against Arsenal, Sarri will be praying that N'Golo Kante is fit enough to play after coming off in the win against Watford at the start of the month with a hamstring injury.
