On Reuben Loftus-Cheek's future Sarri said: "I made a decision to put two wingers and only one midfielder on the bench".

"Eden is ready for 50-60 minutes".

"If I arrived after another coach maybe for me it was more hard, so I have to say thank you to him".

"So I think Eden (Hazard) will stay with us for the whole season".

"I'll try and do my best for this club: it's a new league for me and that's always hard at the start, but I'm confident that the coach and my teammates will help me out". "Now I can attack the space, I can play one touch and go into the area for the crosses".

Thierry is quoted by The Mirror as saying: "I can not say why it did not go through".

Hazard continues to be linked with leaving Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid yet to replace Cristiano Ronaldo. I have spoken with him twice this week, after I spoke with the club.

Morata said: "The most important thing is the way we play now".

'Then, after the transfer window finished, I said we have to concentrate on (the football).

These defensive lapses have not been enough to boring Sarri's optimism that his players will adapt to his ideas, though he warned he will not be able to change his system in the manner that predecessor Antonio Conte did when he made a spectacularly successful shift to a 3-4-3 formation two years ago and won the Premier League title.

Asked if the player himself feels ready to play a full game, Sarri replied: "Maybe, but I think it's more important (what is in) my mind". When I arrive in a new team usually I have problems with the defensive base for two months, so it's not a problem. "I can't play with five defenders".

"In this way, if I defend with five defenders, I lose immediately metres on the pitch". The 37-year-old who was a part of three Premier League winning seasons with both the London sides believes that his former side can outdo both Pep Guardiola's Manchester City and Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.
