Sarri gives injury update ahead of Cardiff clash

Sarri gives injury update ahead of Cardiff clash”

They take on newly promoted Cardiff at home at Stamford Bridge, looking to continue impressive form under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

While the Blues have managed to adopt Sarri's offensive tactics very well, with the club now having made the most passes of all Premier League sides with 2,995 and a passing accuracy of 89% (equal to Manchester City), the Italian feels that there is still room for improvement, particularly on the defensive phase of their game - something he had earlier mentioned needs a complete change of the mind. I'm talking about one week ago.

'The two teams to watch this year are Manchester City and Liverpool, ' he added. For sure, he would be a point of reference for me.

After rejecting the chance to join Russia's Spartak Moscow earlier this week, Chelsea legend John Terry has been presented with an opportunity to rejoin his old club.

Cardiff City's Josh Murphy (hamstring) and Aron Gunnarsson (knee) are back in the squad for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

"Fortunately last season the average was the same, 2.40 during the season and 2.45 after the break, but only because after the first season the players understood the difficulty of the match".

'I don't know today the situation because I have to speak with the doctor.

His first arrived way back in February 2014 during a meeting with Newcastle, but he has now etched his name into Premier League folklore in west London.

"I think we must improve but we can improve, " summed up the Italian, who seems not to believe Manchester United or Tottenham have the quality to claim the title this term.

Terry made 702 appearances for the Blues, winning five Premier Leagues, four FA Cups, three League Cups and a UEFA Champions League title.

"But it's a good pressure, and I think if you don't feel this pressure you stop being the type of player to play for Chelsea".
