The former Napoli man set a more advanced N'Golo Kante free soon after, but the Frenchman passed up the chance to shoot and instead laid it off for Ross Barkley, whose shot dripped on to the roof of the net.

Italy is planning a state funeral for the dead in the port city Saturday, which will be marked as a day of national mourning. Italy's Interior Minister and Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini , meanwhile, blamed the European Union (EU) for the tragedy.
Emery is the opposite, but both teams are still a work in progress.
On Kovacic's role in the team going forward, Sarri added: "I think he can play in any of the three positions in midfield".

But Hazard is still a Chelsea player and despite the window still being open in many leagues across Europe, it is unlikely he will be allowed to leave with a replacement not being able to be bought.
He was also plagued by injury problems in north London and retired in 2017, one year after leaving Arsenal for his boyhood club Sparta Prague.
And by the time he was replaced by Giroud on 75 minutes, Morata had done more than enough to justify his place in the starting XI.
