Maurizio Sarri issues update on Eden Hazard’s Chelsea FC future

Chelsea manager Maurizo Sarri says his side's heaviest league defeat for 23 years was "my fault" after the 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth.

Prior to that substitution, some Chelsea fans sang "You don't know what you're doing" as Sarri withdrew Gonzalo Higuain after 65 minutes of his Premier League debut.

Chelsea will need to work quickly to seal a deal and convince a reluctant Watford to part with one of their most influential players on deadline day.

The Italian asked his coaching staff, including assistant Gianfranco Zola, to leave the dressing room so he could speak to his players alone.

Usually in today's atmosphere, when an elite team comes calling for a young player, with added reports of a transfer request being handed in, it becomes a worry as the club may be forced to sell.

"We are very angry". It is unacceptable for Chelsea and we have to find the solutions'.

SARRI: MAYBE I CAN'T MOTIVATE PLAYERS Maurizio Sarri again suggested he is unable to get the best out of his Chelsea squad after suffering their joint-worst Premier League defeat at Bournemouth. We stopped playing. We didn't play like a team.

The current situation is clearly having an impact on Sarri's reputation as a manager and he is now the bookmakers' second-favourite - behind Leicester's Claude Puel - to be the next Premier League manager sacked.

However, the squad's concerns will only serve to increase the pressure on Sarri from within the club.

Tottenham were the big winners from the midweek games as they came from behind to beat Watford 2-1 at Wembley to move within seven points of Liverpool - who could only draw at home to Leicester - at the top of the table and two of Manchester City who surprisingly lost to Newcastle on Tuesday night.

But, the progress to the senior side has not quite gone as envisioned for Hudson-Odoi, who has started just six games this season.

The French giants will have to cope without him as they look to finally go all the way in the European Cup.
