Maurizio Sarri sends warning to players after Jorginho criticism

"This month is going to be hard, but we are Chelsea".

Maurizio Sarri has urged his player to follow his instruction more to get better out of every player on the field. The unusual, inscrutable flakiness of this core of Chelsea players also infuriated Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte, eventually playing a part in the downfall of both.

"We were really very unsafe, we didn't play back to the opposition goal like in the last match with five players sometimes". He's even gone as far as predicting exactly how the game will go.

But Sarri is also looking at using Kovacic in Jorginho's position after Chelsea decided against signing a like-for-like replacement for Cesc Fabregas, who joined Monaco. At times he has also deserved it, becoming a little passive and tentative as he adapts to a league more intense and physical than anything he has known before.

Five killed after parts of plane hit house in California
It's been reported that a small plane came apart in the air, dropping parts throughout a neighbourhood in southern California. Panicked neighbours rushed to the burning home, dousing burning debris on the street with water from garden hoses.


Sarri replaced Antonio Conte during the summer and one of his first signings was midfielder Jorginho.

"Jorginho is very able to move the ball, to build up the action, but Jorginho usually plays at 40 metres from the opposition goal, so it's impossible for him to make the last pass". Kovacic is really close to Jorginho in moving the ball really fast at one-touch.

Higuain was brought in on loan from Juventus following the struggles of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud in front of goal this season. Yet the ferocity and confidence of both of his finishes against Huddersfield, each dispatched with one sweeping touch, suggested he could provide exactly what has been missing.

Hazard said he had benefited from training with Higuain for the past 10 days and backed his new team mate to be a success in England. "In the box he's unbelievable, so he will score more goals, I think".

"He can score from everywhere, he scored a lot of goals in Italy and Spain".

He will need to.

By the time it is over, Sarri's revolution will either be planning for its second season or on the road to ruin.
