Sarri conference

During his pre-game press conference, Chelsea‘s manager Maurizio Sarri said Wolverhampton will be a tough opponent tomorrow night for the Blues Premier League match.

I expect a very difficult match. They have technical players, they were unlucky in the last two matches, but it is not easy to play there”. the Italian explained.

Sarri also confirmed every Chelsea player is fit for tomorrow’s game: “I spoke with the doctor ten minutes ago, but we have no injuries at the moment”. Sarri said. “We have a little problem with Kovacic and Alonso in he last match, but they are ready to play. We have one more training session”.

The Blues manager also admitted Ruben Loftus-Cheek is becoming a very important player for Chelsea: “He has played in the Europa League and League Cup, some in the Premier League but not starting”. Sarri explained. “At the moment he is very important for us. He had some problems to understand what I wanted, but he is improving and in the last two matches I have been very happy with him. I want him to stay with me, with us”.

Finally, Maurizio Sarri commented on Azpilicueta‘s new contract and reflected also on Fabregas and David Luiz‘s situations: “He is important for the club, staff and team-mates. I am very happy with the contract” the Italian said about Azpilicueta, while on David Luiz and Fabregas he went on: “I spoke with the club about this one month ago. I know very well it is not easy, but I think we can do a new deal for both. They are very important players for us. It is very difficult to find a centre-back for this level and it is difficult to find a centre-midfielder technical like Fabregas, so I think they have to stay with us. The deal is very difficult for this reason (over 30), the club want a short contract and the players want a long contract, it is difficult for this reason but we can find a solution”.
