Chelsea only need one more player - Sarri

Chelsea fans are absolutely loving Callum Hudson-Odoi's performance against Arsenal

Maurizio Sarri knows even winning trophies is no guarantee of a lengthy stay at Chelsea. It depends on the club. I think everybody wants to be better than the a year ago.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson had admitted he would love to have Ruben Loftus-Cheek back at Selhurst Park this season, should he become available from parent club Chelsea.

City will present an even sterner test in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday, as well as an intriguing duel of philosophies between Sarri and his good friend Guardiola.

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.

In Sarri's mind, the best way to begin bridging the gap is to stick with the ambitious attacking approach that won him countless admirers at Napoli.

Chelsea appointed Sarri last month as the successor to Antonio Conte, who led the Blues to FA Cup glory by beating Mourinho's Manchester United in last season's final. It was very hard, very difficult. But we have to try to have a good performance.

The transfer window for Premier League clubs closes just a few days after the game.

"I would like my players to have the personality and to be able to think in their minds that we are at the same level [as City]. But maybe only a player". He reported late for Chelsea duty after the World Cup.

Sarri was then asked about his Brazilian winger Willian but was slightly more confident on the 29-year-old, "Willian?"

"It was a very positive conversation and I am very happy about it. I am happy about it".

The Chelsea head coach will meet Courtois when he returns to the club's Cobham training base today from his post-World Cup holiday.

Maurizio Sarri, though, has come out to give yet another update to the situation, as Real Madrid are regularly linked to the Belgium global.

His agent Christophe Henrotay had revealed that he had told Chelsea that Courtois wanted to go to Real Madrid.

Jones added on the potential of either of those star turns taking in a change of scenery: "With Eden I don't know". I want to hear Courtois [and see] if Courtois, tomorrow, will say to me the same. "I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper". "It's very important for us to keep the top players".
