Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says changing defensive tactics may prove hard

Alvaro Morata prefers new coach Maurizio Sarri to Antonio Conte

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has hinted that it might take the Blues two months to get the drift of his footballing philosophy popularly known as "Sarri Ball", a system of football similar to the Spanish "tiki-taka".

Chelsea defender David Luiz admits he probably would have left the club had manager Antonio Conte not been replaced by Maurizio Sarri over the summer.

"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".

The Blues beat Arsenal at Stamford Bridge last weekend in a topsy-turvy game, which followed their victory against Huddersfield Town in their opening fixture of the season.

If he is hoping to still play regular first-team football as he enters the swansong of his career, Galatasaray may be about to give him an opportunity to do so.

Omarosa: I believe Trump wants to start a race war
Trump has ratcheted up the personal attacks on Twitter, calling Manigault Newman a "lowlife", "wacky and deranged' and a " dog ". The Apprentice , which aired on NBC for 14 seasons from 2004-2017, earned Trump a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007.


Chelsea eventually broke the impasse by agreeing to pay around £50 million to sign Italy worldwide Jorginho, but De Laurentiis reportedly insisted that the Blues pledge not to try to sign any more Napoli players and has since publicly criticised Sarri several times.

"It's not so easy in this period because we play only once a week", he said. He added,"I respect Guardiola as a man and a coach, for me, he is the best in the world now". What I will say is that be sure that when you go to the stadium you support the team, because it is the only way for us to be stronger.

Benitez said: "Everybody knows that finishing 10th was a miracle because we did really well, that's it".

"I thought Mateo and Eden played very well in the last 30 minutes, but also in that moment the intensity of the match was going down".

Chelsea make the trip to Newcastle United for this afternoon's Premier League meeting versus Newcastle United. I don't know if I'm a very good coach if I teach another [way of] football. "Then, if I enjoy the game, maybe the supporters enjoy the game".
