"I think we are in the beginning, we already head everything but you have to learn in your head and pass this to your body and synchronise".

Luiz was one of several first-team players at Chelsea that had fallen out with Conte during his time at Stamford Bridge before he was sacked in the summer.

"The reality is that we have to be safe and if we are safe, then we can try to achieve something more". He added,"I respect Guardiola as a man and a coach, for me, he is the best in the world now". You are not depending on the opponent.

Sarri admitted that the term "Sarri-Ball" was created by the media, while he was happy to reveal how his team is supposed to play.

Conte arrived at Chelsea in the summer of 2016 and settled on a 4-3-3 formation after trialling 4-2-4 in preseason, but comprehensive defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal prompted him to turn to the 3-4-3 system that ultimately propelled the Blues to an unexpected Premier League title triumph.


"I don't know", he said.

"It is incredible to play football, of course last season was not the best for me inside the pitch, but also I learned a lot outside the pitch as a person, as a man", he told Sky Sports ahead of Chelsea's Sunday trip to Newcastle United, where they will look to make it three top-flight wins out of three this season. Sarri has the Blues playing some lovely football and Newcastle are yet to find their groove this season.

"I want to enjoy, I want to have fun, press the ball", he said. "Maybe I've learned it from a lot of lost matches, I think!"

While it is true the club did not win a trophy during this time, the club did finish second twice, and were "Winter Champions" (Campioni d'Inverno) in both the 2015/16 and 16/17 seasons when they finished the first half of the season at the top of the table.

"They can say he was not winning - yes - but the team maybe was not capable of winning".
