Chelsea Boss Maurizio Sarri Speaks About Title Race

Adjust Comment Print

Last term, the 22-year-old made Antonio Conte's starting line-up in 34 of his 40 appearances in all competitions, so it's no wonder he feels slightly hard done by. I hope we don't lose Sigurdsson for the next matches after that tackle from Jorginho. "I'm not happy of course but we are going the right way".

"The referee tries to do his job and I try to do my best. I guess when I am on the floor I can win free-kicks, so every free-kick with Chelsea is a chance to score more goals".

The Blues play Fulham, Wolves, Manchester City, Vidi FC, Brighton, Bournemouth, Leicester, Chelsea and Crystal Palace in the final month of the year.

Now, under the leadership of Maurizio Sarri, the Denmark worldwide is so out of favour that he hasn't seen a single minute of Premier League action in the 2018-19 campaign. "I'm just enjoying myself".

The match was often ill-tempered, with Jorginho and Marcos Alonso fortunate not to be sent off for unsafe tackles on Gylfi Sigurdsson and Theo Walcott respectively as well as frequent angry exchanges between the Chelsea and Everton benches. They must do their best to take it. Ambition-wise, Chelsea must think about the Premier League and the Champions League, the titles which are really important.

Hazard, the Premier League's joint top-scorer so far this season with seven, had been expected to play a half in Belarus but with the tie still goalless until early in the second half he ended up featuring for 62 minutes.

Chelsea's only loss this season came in the Community Shield to Manchester City and the Blues on Thursday won a fourth Europa League game to advance from Group L with two matches to spare.

Hazard's contract expires in June 2020 and there has always been speculation over whether he will sign a new deal keeping him at Stamford Bridge or pursue a "dream" move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

"In the last three matches we created few goal opportunities in relation to how much we played", Sarri added.
