I'm Trying To Do Something Great - Maurizio Sarri Wants Chelsea Fan Patience

Maurizio Sarri has touched on the difficulty of being a striker playing in this Chelsea side.

Why? First of all, I want to do Plan A very well. We played very well in the first half.

Maurizio Sarri criticised Eden Hazard's selfishness and was told that he puts too much faith in Jorginho as the Chelsea boss held a frank conversation with his players after Wednesday's 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth.

The Blues suffered a punishing 4-0 loss at Bournemouth in midweek, prompting fresh questions over Sarri's suitability to the job. "We have four wingers, I had two on the pitch and one on the bench".

I want to remember that, in the first season [under Mauricio Pochettino and Jürgen Klopp], Tottenham and Liverpool were in the middle of the table. The English football is in the hands of these teams. "But if I arrived here starting in a non-professional team, it's because I am a dreamer".

Lampard, who won the Premier League and the Champions League as a player at Chelsea, is now masterminding Derby County's push for promotion into the Premier League.

"It is unacceptable for Chelsea", Azpilicueta said, "and we have to find the solutions".

Chelsea have dropped down to fifth place after winning only one of their past four Premier League games and face rock-bottom Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge on Saturday knowing a third successive defeat would be catastrophic.

Judging by the manner in which they are now playing, they may even finish outside the top four for a second consecutive season.

"Maybe I am not able to motivate these players", said Sarri.

Higuain had played just 130 minutes of football for AC Milan in 2019 before signing for Chelsea on a lucrative loan deal last week, and after the match Sarri revealed he expects his new striker to take time to regain his rhythm.

The Telegraph are reporting that a number of his players, most notably Eden Hazard, were criticised for failing to follow basic instructions given to them. "But I want first of all to change the mentality, so it's a very long way". "I have to try again tomorrow because I need to understand why, because I need to solve this problem". "If I believe organisation of the team is everything, I can not change my mind".
