Maurizio Sarri: 'Liverpool are a step ahead of Chelsea'


"We have to work, we need to improve, and maybe in one year we will be on that level".

The Europa League? I do not think it affected us. Olivier Giroud won his battle with Alvaro Morata for a starting spot up front for Chelsea, keeping his place for the second Premier League match in succession.

Speaking after his latest impressive showing, Manuel Pellegrini said Rice had "taken his chance" with the senior team, and highlighted the fact the best was yet to come with the youngster still learning his role.

Sarri talked about the need to move the ball more quickly and create better movement off the ball following the 0-0 draw at the London Stadium.

The gruelling Thursday-to-Sunday turnaround that comes with playing in the Europa League might already be taking its toll on Chelsea.

"I think we played a good tactical game as we allowed them to have the ball but near our box we defended well and we got our first clean sheet".

"I feel like it's two points dropped today because of the opportunities we had", Antonio said.

Giroud was unable to make proper contact with a Jorginho cross but West Ham burst into life on the half-hour and Michail Antonio fired over after Anderson's run had set him up on the left of the area. Then we have played well in the second half, and very well in the last 25 minutes.

Sarri wants Hazard to focus his energies on the final third of the pitch.

At least 182 Palestinians have been killed in the protests, according to Palestinian health officials. Mourners carried Muhammad's body through the streets of Gaza City and chanted anti-Israel slogans.

The derby against West Ham follows on from Chelsea's first European assignment of the campaign at PAOK. It was very hard to play inside.

But if the German is not ready to face Liverpool on Saturday, Langley says Cahill must be the man to step in at Anfield; he has fewer concerns about the EFL Cup game between the two teams on Wednesday.

"At that moment of the game Giroud is a great reference point for the teammates, but they were closing those pass trajectories, so I made a decision to bet on Morata, who is a more dynamic player. Maybe I will change 11 players, maybe 5".
