Speaking ahead of tomorrow night’s game vs BrightonChelsea’s manager Maurizio Sarri admitted Callum Hudson-Odoi could make his debut in the Blues’ starting XI in a Premier League game.

I know very well Callum, and I want him to improve more because the potential is higher. And Callum is always in my mind. In my opinion, he is our future”. Sarri explained. Now he’s ready to play. Probably he will start tomorrow or in the next match Firstly I want to see the condition of all the players. The condition of Willy, Pedro, Eden, all the wingers. But of course, he is in my mind.”.

The Italian also said he has always thought about Callum Hudson-Odoi as an important player for Chelsea: “First of all, in pre-season after four or five training sessions, I realised that Callum was really a player with a very great potential.  In my opinion, in that moment, he wasn’t ready to play at this level. But during the season, he has improved. And now he’s ready to play.” Sarri went on. “But I decided at the beginning of the season that he had to stay with us, and I put him in the squad. So I know very well Callum, and I want him to improve more because the potential is higher. And Callum is always in my mind. In my opinion, he is our future”.

Pedro was the man who led Chelsea to their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace as the Spaniard scored the third goal which faded the visitors’ hopes to plan a turnaround. Alvaro Morata had put the Blues back in front after Townsend’s equalizer in the second half.

Pedro told Chelsea TV: “Yes it was a very good day for us and for all the team,

The team worked very hard and I’m very happy to score a goal and get the three points because it’s very important for us to stay near the top and to continue in this way”.

“The team are playing very well, moving the ball with one or two touches, creating chances and winning games. The important thing for us is getting the three points but we just need to take it step by step and game by game”.

The Chelsea winger also praised teammate and compatriot Morata, who’s growing in confidence after scoring 5 goals from 6 consecutive matches so far.

Pedro said: “After, when Alvaro scored again, we controlled the game and moved the ball faster, I then scored the third and that was good”.

“He’s in good condition and he had a very good performance. He has the mentality to score goals and help the team, that’s the best way for him”.

“We are happy because he’s a very good striker. He runs a lot and scores goals, now he’s in a very good moment so this is the way for him. Scoring goals is very important for him and the team”.

Brazialian winger Willian started in Maurizio Sarri‘s first Premier League game as Chelsea boss on Saturday vs Huddersfield Town.

Willian himself admitted the appointment of the former SS Napoli manager was crucial in his choice to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Would I be here if Conte stayed? No chance. No.” Willian said. “I’m here. I’m here because I want to play for Chelsea. I will only leave if Chelsea want me to go.”

Then the Brazilian spoke also about Maurizio Sarri: “He wants to build from the back. This is what we will try to do this season”. Willian went on. “This is what we do in Brazil and are trying to do here, playing with skill and movement and the manager told us to do that.”

Brazilian star Willian was expected to join his team-mates today and continue his pre-season training with Chelsea.

However, the Blues winger didn’t show up explaing his delay has been caused by problems with his passport.

Willian’s behaviour could be interpreted also as a way to force Chelsea to sell him in the last few days of this summer transfer window as Real Madrid reportedly offer £65m to sign him.

Manchester City won last Premier League title and Pep Guardiola‘s team seem the favourite to retain the title next season.

However, City’s star Leroy Sané, speaking to BBC Sport, said it won’t be easy to win again the Premier League and that the toughest rivals will be Chelsea.

Chelsea have brought in a really good Coach”, the winger told BBC Sport. “The way Napoli played last season was really attractive. We really suffered against them. They might need some time to get used to his tactics but they could be a really tough team. City’s biggest threat to retaining the title? I think Chelsea.”

Barcelona hopes to land Chelsea winger Willian to Camp Nou this summer could be definitively faded as the Blues have reportedly refused also a third bid in excess of £55m, as SkySports HQ reported today.

And the La Liga giants have placed a last-minute bid for Bordeaux star Malcom, whose move to AS Roma had been already confirmed from both clubs earlier this evening with a medical scheduled for tomorrow in the morning.

Barcelona have reportedly offered a fee in the region of £38 for the highly-rated winger as they could have given up on trying to sign Willian from Chelsea.

Chelsea and Coventry have reached a deal for the Blues’ youngster Dujon Sterling.

The talented right-back, who can also play as centre midfielder and winger, will join the League One side on a season-long loan.

I’m very pleased to have signed Dujon on loan until the end of the 2018/19 season”. Mark Robins, Coventry manager said. “We would like to thank Chelsea for loaning Dujon to us, for what is his first loan spell from the club. He worked with Adi Viveash at Chelsea, so we’re very aware of what he will bring to us. Dujon is someone with great pedigree and a lot of potential, as shown by his international recognition, who will add another dimension to our play. Though primarily a defender, he can play anywhere down the right-hand side of the pitch and makes use of his skill and pace. We look forward to seeing him develop during his time with us and contributing to our season.”
