Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri: 'I quizzed each player on Tottenham Hotspur defeat'

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri: 'I quizzed each player on Tottenham Hotspur defeat'

In midfield, Maurizio Sarri has hinted at resting N'Golo Kante after a few errors from the Frenchman as regards his positioning were visible in the loss to Tottenham.

Playmaker Jorginho is Sarri's preferred option in central midfield and Kante, a Premier League title victor with Leicester and Chelsea in successive seasons, is adjusting.

"I want to play a central midfielder who is a very technical player, so for me, it's Jorginho or Fabregas".

Hazard picked up an ankle injury in the Blues' 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, whilst Moses has suffered a back injury.

Former Chelsea superstar Scott Minto has revealed that he would like to see French midfielder N'golo Kante break the shackles in his new position. Kante wanted to solve the match after the first 15 minutes but in the wrong way.

Of course, with one or two cracks beginning to appear in the system Sarri has based his managerial career on, his team selection will attract much speculation - probably too much. And I think this is not one of the best characteristics of Kante.

With both players having nearly the same playing pattern, it will be an easy task for Sarri to bring the Frenchman back into the team while Morata comes into the game from the bench.

Since Sarri's arrival from Napoli in July, however, the manager has preferred to play Jorginho, whom he signed from his... In Italy, if I play in Greece on Thursday I can ask to play on Monday night, but I have to play again in 63 hours. We know it's not his main strength, but he's very important for us in recovering the ball.

Sarri previously has encouraged Kante to go forward in matches. But, as I said before, we lost one match after three and a half months.

"It's very hard for me to understand why".

Maurizio Sarri's men are six points clear of Vidi so a point will be enough to see them progress as group winners but no doubt Chelsea will want to maintain their 100% record in the competition with a fifth straight victory.
