The international break comes up after this weekend fixtures and will give the Spaniard the opportunity to recover fully

Although Sarri has successfully utilized his available squad in the first three games, the end of the international break will result in a good number of fixtures and will definitely call for rotation.

The likes of Ethan Ampadu and Hudson-Odoi returned to the first team after their exertions with the Development squad last week.
