Spanish ace signs new deal with Chelsea

Moses set to quit Chelsea

The hat-trick was the first by a Chelsea player in Europe since Didier Drogba's against Levski Sofia in 2006 - and the first by an Englishman since Harry Kane for Tottenham against Asteras Tripolis four years ago.

Loftus-Cheek had not scored a Chelsea goal since April 2016 before pulling off two expert finishes inside the opening eight minutes at Stamford Bridge as a Chelsea team featuring a number of fringe players overwhelmed an inferior BATE side.

It comes despite Loftus-Cheek starring for Crystal Palace on loan last season and being part of the England squad during the World Cup.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is happy with "good, healthy competition" at Chelsea and says manager Maurizio Sarri is improving him.

"He played very, very well", Sarri said of Loftus-Cheek.

"The first thing in my head is to keep playing well, to keep sharp in case I do get an opportunity to start", the midfielder told BT Sport.

Chelsea's victory sees them go six clear at the top of the table, with three more games to play.

Sarri is delighted for the Spaniard, but has urged him to improve the defensive side of his game, which would complement his attacking output.

"I'm in a totally different frame of mind this season", Barkley told the Evening Standard. I knew then that this season was going to be my time, and that I would be more like a new signing this summer than I was in January, just because of where I was at physically.

"As I said before, I have a tactical problem with the midfielders".

And now fans have started wondering if Patrice Evra is planning to make a return back to Manchester United in a managerial role.

Chelsea will be back in action on Sunday, when they visit Burnley in the Premier League.
