Chelsea boss Sarri: Hazard must improve tactically

Gonzalo Higuain will make his Premier League debut for Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri admits he did not anticipate taking over as Chelsea head coach would prove to be so hard.

Maurizio Sarri loves to have extensive midfield options, which we have seen this season at Chelsea and in the past few seasons with Napoli as well.

"I don't want to change something that isn't working, I want to see it play well and then we look to change something". I want to play my football.

The Blues dropped out of the Champions League places on Wednesday night after they were thrashed 4-0 at Bournemouth - their third successive away defeat.

However, ahead of Chelsea's next game in the Premier League against bottom-placed Huddersfield Town, Sarri has urged the fans to remain patient, despite back to back defeats in the league.

The Frenchman has been one of the Hornets' prime performers over the past three years and he has contributed three goals and five assists in the top-flight this term.

"I want to remember that in the first season Klopp and Liverpool were in the middle of the table. But if I arrived here starting in a non-professional team, it's because I am a dreamer".

Anthony Davis tells Pelicans he won't re-sign
Meanwhile, New Orleans has not expressed any interest in trading him before the February 7 trade deadline. The 6-foot-10, 235-pound Davis was the first overall pick in by the then-New Orleans Hornets in 2012.

After the latest setback, he locked them in the changing room for almost an hour, having told the rest of the coaching staff, including Chelsea great Gianfranco Zola, to leave. We expected another result tonight.

After the final whistle Sarri locked the players in the changing room for an hour and spoke to them along after asking the rest of his coaching staff to leave.

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

"In that moment I wanted to talk to them alone, without anybody", Sarri, who replaced Antonio Conte before the start of the season, told reporters. "But I want first of all to change the mentality, so it's a very long way". "If he can improve physically then he will be useful for us immediately". We need to solve the problem.

Chelsea's best moments during the first half were usually prompted by David Luiz's incisive passing from deep, which injected some tempo into their play.

The Italian's playing style at Chelsea has been a massive talking point so far, with many criticising Sarri's refusal to adapt.
