Sarri rules out switching Kante's role

Sarri rules out switching Kante's role

Chelsea face PAOK in the Europa League on Thursday, before taking on Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday. "We can not look at City".

But Sarri will have analysed the loss and it certainly was an urgent wake-up call for the plethora of fixtures which will hit them in December (10 to be precise).

But the Italian has the flawless opportunity to get back to winning ways against PAOK tonight.

The Blues have already qualified for the knockout rounds, after winning their first four fixtures.

Chelsea need a point from their final two games to win Group L.

Sarri has tried to use the Frenchman in a more attacking role than he is used to, with limited success.

"Jorginho has been excellent this season -teams are having to change their system and their style at times to counteract him, which shows how good a player he is".

Sarri spoke to the media at his pre-match press conference on Wednesday to confirm that both Eden Hazard and Victor Moses will be unavailable for the fixture. Ethan Ampadu may again make the matchday squad, but Andreas Christensen will be the closest thing to a youth player in the back line.

"From the beginning, when you have [Manchester] City in the competition, it's already hard", the former Napoli man said.

Davide Zappacosta should start at right-back.

"He maybe needs to be more selfish around the box when he has the opportunity to shoot". Gary Cahill is expected to get a rare start and he is likely to be partnered by Andreas Christensen.

Spurs' formation ensured that there was no space for their visitors to get their intricate passing game going and exploited the oceans of space left behind when Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso bombed on. For me the centre midfielder is Jorginho or (Cesc) Fabregas.

The report claims that Juventus, Arsenal and Barcelona are interested in the 18-year-old.

Just as his first season at Stamford Bridge, Morata is running out of goals after failing to find the back of the net in seven Leagues matches.
