Sarri pins faith in Jorginho to close 30-point gap to City

Sarri pins faith in Jorginho to close 30-point gap to City

The distance to City stood at 30 points in the final reckoning last season as Chelsea finished a distant fifth in the Premier League. "Because I only want players with very high levels of motivation".

The 31-year-old, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Barcelona in the summer of 2015, is now under contract until the summer of 2020. "I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper". "I am happy about it".

"Of course, he needs more time to work everything but the ideas are already there, so I think it'll be a good game [ on Sunday]".

"We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics [would be a good fit]". He is already the technical and tactical leader on the pitch, and the rest of the Premier League should be relieved that Pep Guardiola did not manage to bring him to City.

Although Chelsea endured a disappointing campaign last term, Willian was regularly a standout performer and was named Players' Player of the Year for a second time by his team-mates.

"We're looking forward to it", the 27-year-old said.

Sarri was missing a host of first-team stars like Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante, but urged his players to step up their efforts after an easy win for City.

"We can try to reduce the gap in the future with work". It's a insane competition with a high level so I think every manager has the dream to come so he had the chance to come. I don't know. I am not happy about the situation but I would like to talk to him.

The giant 'keeper is due to return to Chelsea training this weekend after helping Belgium finish third at the World Cup and being voted the best goalkeeper at the tournament.
