Pochettino: My hope is to be at Tottenham for 20 years

Tranmere Rovers

"I agree he has to win a trophy", Sarri said of Pochettino, before adding with a smile, "I hope not this [one]".

Spurs ended Chelsea's unbeaten start to the season under Sarri with an emphatic 3-1 victory at Wembley in November, and the Italian revealed his players' reaction to the loss brought the fierce nature of the rivalry between the two clubs home to him.

"As I explained for different players, it's not only in our hands, it's what the player wants".

"So, of course, now, for me, this match is more important".

Sarri and Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino are seeking the first major trophies of their careers.

Sarri also highlighted the time it has taken Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City's Pep Guardiola to develop successful teams, adding: "To build up a very important team you need time". I know for me he is a very important player, he's young and now he's improving, especially in the defensive phase.

Stamford Bridge will host the game on Thursday, January 24 with kick-off at 7.45pm. Out go Willy Caballero, Davide Zappacosta, David Luiz, Emerson, Ethan Ampadu, Alvaro Morata, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and the departing Cesc Fabregas; in come Kepa, Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, Willian and Eden Hazard.
