Manchester United's last Premier League visit to Stamford Bridge yielded a 1-0 win for the home side, which is what Maurizio Sarri will hope for on Saturday. It happened with me, it happened with Antonio [Conte]. "He has won everything everywhere, so probably that means he is right [to play the way he does]".
"I would always think where I am, which stadium I'm in and which public is in the stands". I think that I have to respect him, and I think you [the media] all have to respect him. I don't think so. Obviously they are not playing Champions League and that puts them just in the Premier League and in the Premier League the results speak for themselves'. "We are talking about two months".
"But if he is the best player in the Premier League until now, which he is, Chelsea is top of the league because he is the kind of player who can make a huge difference".
"We took from the Lowry Hotel, 75 minutes and UEFA were nice, the referee was nice to allow us to start the game five minutes later because we at least need half an hour to be prepared, but it was not a problem with the club organisation". "To improve the performance, and in the defensive phase, we're giving too many opportunities to the opponents".
"I can see the team that we have here".
Rudiger is set to once again start in central defence.
The Denmark defender's father says Christensen will seek to leave if he does not feature more regularly by the end of the year, but Sarri gave the comments short shrift.
He said: "I don't know". New arrivals Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho have adapted well to life in the Premier League and have mustered impressive passing stats this season.
Alvaro Morata has picked up in form lately but Giroud is critical to how Chelsea play under Sarri.
"I witnessed this with Torres, a player who rose to world-class status but then lost his explosive pace and could never get it back,"wrote Carragher".
