Blues Star: I'm Proud To Be At Chelsea, Never Considered Leaving

The forward trudged off in stoppage time during the Blues' Europa League win over PAOK following a collision with goalkeeper Alexandros Paschalakis.

The winger, who scored a stunning goal after coming off the bench against Cardiff on Saturday, is in line to be named in the starting eleven against PAOK in the Europa League on Thursday night.

But Sarri is optimistic about the Pedro's fitness.

The Spain global started up front for Chelsea in the Europa League Group L win but was poor.

"I don't know exactly the situation", he said.

According The Metro, Sarri insisted post-match that it's "probably not a serious injury". Of course there will be a spot for him in the future.

'In this match he had three or four opportunities.

Sol Bamba's 16th minute goal in the game ended up being a mere consolation as the west London club came from a goal down to clinch all three points in that encounter. Maybe two goals in two matches, I don't know. He was on the ball and was active'.

Eden Hazard was omitted from the Chelsea squad at his own request due to fatigue, but manager Maurizio Sarri fielded a strong side for the Blues' opening game in Group L at a hostile Toumba Stadium.

Palmieri has been struggling with slight niggles so far this season but the 24-year-old claims he would have been fit to play in Thessaloniki.

The Italy global, who is yet to be included in a single one of Sarri's match day squads this season and was left out of the 21-man party that travelled to Greece, tweeted shortly after the final whistle: "I'm fine, I'm not injured".
