It was earlier reported that England international duo and Chelsea youngsters Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will now begin to see regular playing time under manager Maurizio Sarri after their performance against Brighton in their last 3-0 win but that might not happen.

With the West London outfit expected to play West Ham United in their next league game, the Italian boss has affirmed that he cannot guarantee both players a place in the London derby game.

Following an impressive performance with the senior England national team during the international break, the two youngsters got the nod for a starting role against Brighton where they had performed brilliantly.

But speaking ahead of the West Ham game, Sarri stated that the two cannot be seen on the pitch in the game but noted that one will play in the London derby clash while the other will be in line for the Europa League quarter-finals game against Slavia.

However, Callum Hudson-Odoi had earlier insisted on leaving the Stamford Bridger over the lack of playing time but the Blues are not willing to let him go at the moment.

It has been suggested that the star player will consider a change in his position if he can see more playing time before the end of the season.
