Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has attended to some cogent questions about his team ahead of their clash with the Cherries on Saturday.

The Blues are yet to lose a point this season and they will need to put up a fine performance against Bournemouth so as to maintain their 100% start to the season.

According to Sarri in his pre-match conference, ‘furious’ youngster— who wants a move out of Stamford Bridge— Ruben Loftus-Cheek is progressing every day but he must maintain his steady development so as to stand a chance of getting regular actions ahead of others wingers in the team.

When asked about Victor Moses chance of playing regularly this season, the former Empoli and Napoli boss failed to give a straight answer as he only said the player is adapting to a new style of play.

According to him, the Nigerian international played as a wing-back last season but he is expected to feature as a direct winger throughout this season. However, he reveals that the 27-year-old will get his chance to show his qualities once he finally adapts to his change of position.

“But because he changed the position on the pitch… last season he played (at right wing-back), and now we want him to play like a winger. We changed the position and, in the new position, he needs to improve. But it’s only a question of time, I think.” Sarri said to newsmen

Sarri also speaks on Kante’s attacking role in the team. Since the Frenchman’s switched to Stamford Bridge from Leicester City in 2016, he has featured as a defensive midfielder.

However, Sarri has made him play in a more advanced role but the manager said the player has all it takes to feature any position at the middle of the pitch.

“My opinion is that Kante is a great midfielder, and I think that he is able to play in every position in my midfield. It’s not a problem for him. But I was surprised from the technical qualities of Kante.” he said
