Willian's early goal from Ross Barkley's lay-off was enough for a much-changed Blues side to maintain their winning start to the season in Greece, despite playing in front of a raucous sold-out crowd in Thessaloniki.

willians strike  earn chelsea three points on their europa opener

 This was Chelsea's first Europa League game since winning the competition in 2013 and the victory - their sixth in a row this season - puts them on three points in Group L alongside BATE Borisov of Belarus, who won 2-0 at Hungarian side Vidi.

 The Blues return to Premier League action away to West Ham on Sunday (13:00 BST) before facing Liverpool twice in four days - in the Carabao Cup then the Premier League.

 "For an English team the Europa League is a very difficult competition," said Sarri.

 "In Italy, if I play in Greece on Thursday I can ask to play on Monday night, but I have to play again in 63 hours. I don't know in the future.

 "It is not a big problem now because we have played only six matches but in the future it may be a problem. I hope to qualify before the last one or two matches of the group stage."
