But Maurizio Sarri confirmed he picked up a knock during the match and was therefore an absentee at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Claudio Ranieri, who guided Leicester to the Premier League title in 2016, was named as his replacement.

Chelsea starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi then beat PAOK goalkeeper Alexandros Paschalakis at the near post with a low line drive before setting up Alvaro Morata to head home the Blues' fourth goal from an inch-perfect cross.

Christensen has been frequently excluded from the Chelsea set-up under Maurizio Sarri, failing to appear in the Premier League this season and relegated to roles in their Europa League campaign which is usually regarded as a second-string side being fielded.

"He played very well, but the type of match was for his characteristics", Sarri said. "When you play against Chelsea, you have to be very attentive, but we're working hard and I'm confident it'll be a very good derby".

"I don't know if he is able [to be ready] for the Premier League at 18, especially in a big team".

Fulham haven't beaten their neighbours for 12 years, but will make the short trip in better spirits after ending a run of seven straight defeats in all competitions with victory over Southampton.

One Twitter user said: "Morata should always cut his hair, it's helping him to score again".

England worldwide Barkley played the entire 90 minutes of Thursday's 4-0 thrashing over the Greek side. We only needed to play in the offensive phase.

Chelsea will look to cement their position in the top four with a win when Fulham arrive at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon. He has to be very, very strong; I want him to improve his pressing, and that's it. "I'm very happy with this".
