Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri: Danny Drinkwater, Victor Moses not in tactical plans

England warm up a training session on 29 October 2018

I suppose him being a south-east London-born footballer gave us a little bit of a homegrown element, so there's perhaps more a feeling of, "What a shame he's not here", than there maybe would be with another player.

The Italian has enjoyed a fine start to life at Chelsea since his appointment in July, steering the Blues to seven wins and three draws in his opening 10 Premier League matches.

"I don't want to think about the record now, because we have to think only about the match", Sarri said.

Drinkwater had offers for a loan move over the summer from more than one Premier League club but they were thrown out by Chelsea as they didn't offer enough of a loan fee, with the club hoping to sell him outright.

"But we've used 26 players in all competitions this season".

"I have to look also to the minutes in the national teams". You have to look at the EFL Cup, Europa League and national team. So I think the rotation is good. Every moment was done only between the Europa League, League Cup and Premier League but in the future it will be different. I think we need to improve and we need to improve with these players because they can improve. Everyone wanted to win Serie A, not the other competitions.

Iranian marchers chant 'Death to America' on eve of US oil sanctions
It is part of efforts by Iran and its customers to keep oil flowing ahead of a new USA embargo set to hit on Monday. Trump announced the U.S.'s withdrawal from what he described as "the frightful , one-sided" nuclear deal.

"We have to think only about the game points".

"I think that we have worked very well". We need to cover immediately the lost ball.

Sarri also appeared to rule out a January loan move for Ruben Loftus-Cheek but insists the midfielder must improve if he is to claim a regular place in his Premier League side.

"Probably he will be able to play for 40 to 45 minutes".

Sarri is surprised at his team's lofty position in the table having predicted they would encounter "problems" in the first half of the campaign, and remains adamant that they are some way short of achieving the defensive solidity that underpins truly elite sides. For me Cahill is important on and off the pitch as captain'. Any fears that Chelsea would struggle to import Sarri's style of football from Naples appear to have been unfounded: 15 games in, they are still unbeaten.
