Chelsea must remain focused after worldwide break - Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri has said he has been warning his Chelsea players all week about the danger of dropping points after worldwide breaks as they prepare to resume their Premier League campaign at home to Cardiff City on Saturday.

"I am very open with him, because he's the history of the club".

"If he wants to help us, I'm very, very happy".

"If there is a pitch and there are 11 players, I feel at home anywhere", Sarri said.

Sarri added: "I think that at the moment Fabregas can be on the bench, but I want to speak to him, I think maybe it is better to have two days of training".


Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has waxed lyrical over David Luiz - insisting the Brazilian has a "big future" at Stamford Bridge. "[But] in this first period, for me, it was very important not to change, especially the defensive line".

Chelsea's flawless start to the season has led to suggestions they can challenge for the title after finishing fifth last term, well adrift of champions Manchester City. I think [it is too soon], but I hope not! "It's very hard. The gap was 30 points at the beginning of the season".

Emerson Palmieri, Davide Zappacosta (both illness) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (shin) are doubts and could miss out.

Mateo Kovacic is once again expected to partner with N'Golo Kante and Jorginho in a midfield that is looking increasingly settled as Maurizio Sarri settles on his 4-3-3 formation. "I am trying", Sarri said. He has won everything with the club.' Asked about the possibility of Terry joining Chelsea as a player, Sarri said: 'It would be on the coaching staff, I think, because, as I've said before, we want to give space to the young players.
