Sarri endured a slippage of points to West Ham on Sunday when he started similar players with tired legs.
Apart from fans wondering why the 59-year-old manager did not bring in fresh legs in the second half, the likes of Victor Moses, Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas, Palmieri Emerson, Hudson-Odoi and Ethan Ampadu would be overwhelmed as well.
Now that his passionate players who’s been impressive in 5 Premier league appearances failed to win the Hammers, we expect a level of professionalism from the Italian man.
Line-up. (4:3:3 formation)
The Argentine shot-stopper would return in place of Kepa Arrizabalaga, while Robert Green is expected to be on the bench as the second choice.
We expect Cesar Azpilicueta to sit on the bench and watch the Italian player fight for his position at right-back.
The Denmark international was formidable in defense against PAOK. Many wonder why David Luiz is above him in Sarri’s pecking order. He should start this one.
The 32-year-old got his first start due to the injury sustained by Antonio Rudiger last Sunday so we expect him to captain the team to victory.
For so long we expected Marcos Alonso on the bench but his crawl legs on Sunday may not be needed against the quick feet of the Merseyside. Palmieri should start ahead of him this time.
Though Jorginho completed most passes so far in the Premier league but Fabregas is more clinical in his passes. We’ve seen the Spanish midfield maestro’s performance in recent years. He’s the last generation of Xabi Alonso, Pirlo and David Beckham. Starting against Liverpool may teach Jorginho one or two things.
He had a little share of contribution last week after entering in the late period of the game. We expect to see him start ahead of Matteo Kovacic.
He would have rested the World Cup winner but not in a crux match that could decide their fate and strength. Perhaps he could sit with Fabregas while Barkley steps in front of the duo.
The Brazilian now needs no introduction but is expected to start ahead of Victor Moses once more. However, we expect the Nigerian winger to come right in the second half.
He started from the bench last week, created a goal-scoring opportunity and would have scored with his first touch of the game against Manuel Pellegrini’s men.
Eden Hazard could be rested ahead of another Liverpool clash by the weekend so we expect Hudson-Odoi to take his place in the left flank.
Caballero; Zapacosta, Christensen, Cahill, Emerson; Kante, Fabregas, Barkley, Willian, Morata, Hudson-Odoi.
Sky Sports reporter hints on expectation for Higuain, Wilson Chelsea move
English Premier League outfit Chelsea are the only big side that have completed a deal in this winter transfer window and they are yet to add more before the end of the month.
The Blues are lacking a cutting edge in their attack and they wish to have a solution in order to record a successful second half of the season.
The likes of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud are not in good goalscoring form which makes it necessary for the West London side to make moves for new additions.
However, Chelsea have been linked with Argentina international and AC Milan star Gonzalo Higuain and Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson with the hope of having their signature in this winter window.
Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett has therefore given the hint that the West London side will not be bringing both strikers to the club but will rather move in for one.
According to give, the Argentina international remains the first option for manager Maurizio Sarri but a move will be made for the Premier League striker should the deal for Higuain fails to work through.
Meanwhile, the Italian Serie A side are keen to stop the player from leaving the club this winter window.
Why Chelsea will no longer move for Hirving Lozano
It has been revealed that English Premier League side Chelsea might no longer move in for PSV winger Hirving Lozano in this winter window.
This has been traced to the fact that the West London side sealed a move for German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic some days back.
The Blues were the first to announce a major deal among other big Premier League sides for Christian Pulisic and immediately loaned him back until the end of the season.
However, the West London side were interested in the signature of Hirving Lozano but there are suggestions he would no longer move that direction because of the number of wingers already on ground at the Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Italian Serie A outfits Napoli and Inter Milan are all reported to be keen on the signature of the star player and with the latest development from the Premier League side, they will now stand a better chance on landing Hirving Lozano.
The winger is believed to be interested in a move away from PSV and reports claim that he will jump at any luring deal that would be placed on the table for him.
Chelsea are now interested in the signature of attackers that will replace Alvaro Morata, who is not in good goalscoring form.
Shock destination of Anthony Martial revealed
Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has again been linked with a move away from the Old Trafford with reports that he would be heading to the West London outfit, Chelsea.
The report claims that Anthony Martial is yet to sign a contract extension with the Red Devils and is not close to doing that with claims that he is bent on leaving the club.
The former Monaco star was keen on a move away from the club when he fell out with former manager Jose Mourinho and he is yet to get over that from all insinuations.
Chelsea have therefore emerged as shock suitors for the France international and they are reported to be monitoring the situation with the hope of landing him as soon as in this winter transfer window.
Arsenal were also believed to be in the race for the star striker but should he quit United, Chelsea are tipped as favorites to land him.
Speaking in an interview with RMC Sport, Anthony Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley gave the hint when he stated that he is unsure if his client will sign a new deal at the Old Trafford.
He added that offers have already been received by for the player and he expects a big development in coming days.
How did Chelsea win the race for Christian Pulisic?
How English Premier League side Chelsea won the race to sign German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic remains a surprise to many.
The West London side were the first to announce a major deal amongst the top English sides after they announced the signature of Christian Pulisic in this January window.
Following the announcement of the deal, an agreement was reached between both sides to have him return back to the German outfit on loan until the end of the season.
The West London side were not alone in the race as several European top guns also indicated interest in the star player and were keen to land him as well.
English Premier League leaders Liverpool were earlier leading it eh race to sign Christian Pulisic but withdrew which leaves the Stamford Bridge side and other big guns in the race.
However, Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc noted that the Blues were not the only side ready to meet with the asking price but failed to explain how they won the race.
He stressed that ether was another club keen on the signature of the star player but how the West London side managed to win the race is unknown.
Agent confirms Chelsea star is no longer leaving
David Luiz is set to remain at the Stamford Bridge much longer after his agent claimed that the player is already in talks with the club over a new deal.
The Brazilian was reported to be considering leaving the club after the West London side refused to hand him a two-year deal according to the doctrine of the church which claims that a player should not be handed more than a year extension if he is over 30 years of age.
Mores, David Luiz has returned to the starting XI under the new manager Maurizio Sarri after being sidelined by former Italian boss manager Antonio Conte.
However, David Luiz’s agent Kia Joorabchian confirmed that the Brazilian international defender is still needed at the Stamford Bridge as he noted that talks had already begun with the player.
He said an agreement is being reached between both parties but failed to give the hint if the player had shifted ground or the club.
Meanwhile, the Blues have not hidden their desire to keep the former PSG player over time only for the club’s doctrine which is being adhered to.
The agent has now expressed confidence that negotiations will go as planned between both parties.
Confirmed!! Chelsea fail to convince player, exit imminent
It has been reported that English Premier League outfit Chelsea failed to convince star player Callum Hudson-Odoi which means he would be on his way out of the club.
It was reported that contract talks were held with the player to have him extend his stay at the West London side but they failed to come to an agreement.
These developments hands hope to German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich who are keen on the signature of the Blues player, having made attempts on several occasions which were turned down, according to reports.
The West London side are reported to have requested a sum of £35 million for the 18-year-old which the German outfit claimed was too much and could not meet.
However, the Blues might be forced to come down in their demands for Callum Hudson-Odoi so as not to lose him for free with his contract soon to run out.
Suggestions are that the demands for the player by the West London side in an attempt to block him from moving away as they see him as a major part of the club’s future.
Meanwhile, Callum Hudson-Odoi has not been handed enough playing time under manager Maurizio Sarri this current campaign.
The current situation with Alvaro Morata’s Chelsea future
There has been relative silence over the future of English Premier League outfit Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata in the last few days as the January transfer window runs half way.
The former Real Madrid star has been reported to be on his way away from the club over his lack of impressive performance which has bit gone unnoticed by manager Maurizio Sarri.
It was earlier reported that he would be involved in a swap deal with Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain with the Argentina international striker reported to be coming in the opposite direction but that is yet to happen.
However, another interest for the former Real Madrid star forward surfaced from Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla with claims that talks have been finalized with his agent after he was alleged to have stormed London to hold talks with the West London side.
Despite all of these, the Spanish international striker still remains a Chelsea player with the January winter transfer window already counting down with lots of uncertainty.
Meanwhile, suggestions are that suitors are yet to step up with an offer for him s the West London side are keen to have him sold in this winter transfer window.
Big hit as Chelsea make big Hazard transfer decision
English Premier League outfit Chelsea have decided to splash a £100 million asking price for Belgium international Eden Hazard ahead of his potential move away from the club.
After refusing to commit his future at the Stamford Bridge by signing a contract extension, the West London side are now left with no choice than to let him leave at the end of the season.
Several clubs have all come lining up for the Chelsea gaffer but he seems to be heading to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid after he confessed love and admiration for the Los Blancos in public.
Madrid have also been keen on signing the star player as they wish to have him as a replacement for world best player Cristiano Ronaldo who left the club at the end of last season to join Italian Serie A champions Juventus.
However, the West London side are keen to benefit from the situation by cashing in big on the star player in order splashing a big price tag on him.
It is now unclear if the Spanish giants will be ready to pay such an amount or would have the bargain to bring down the price before a deal for Eden Hazard can be sealed.
Chelsea consider £50m-rated striker as alternative
Should English Premier League outfit Chelsea fail in their bid to secure other striker targets, they are willing to consider former league champions Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy so as to have new additions before the winter transfer window comes to an end.
The West London side are keen to land an attacker this winter window as manager Maurizio Sarri has lost faith in Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud because of the lack of cutting edge in the team.
Several strikers have been linked with the club with Argentina international and Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain reported to be favourite to join the club as manager Maurizio Sarri remains his biggest fan.
However, with the reluctance of the Italian Serie A side to have Higuain released, the West London side could be forced to look other direction and have identified the former Premier League champion as a big alternative.
Jamie Vardy has been an unchanged figure since his resurgence that helped the Leicester city side win the Champions League in 2016 as he has continued to deliver goals for the Foxes.
So far this season, the England international has scored seven goals for his side and is expected to be secured with a cheap fee.
Man United Edge Ahead Of Chelsea In Serie A Midfielder Chase
Manchester United have reportedly moved ahead of rivals Chelsea in the race to sign highly rated Cagliari Calcio midfielder Nicolo Barella.
According to the report from Team Talk, the Red Devils are the favorites to sign Barella after they contacted his Italian Serie A side about a possible transfer on Friday.
It was further stated that Manchester United made a bid of around £30m for the young Italian international midfielder and that they have been swiftly replied by Cagliari.
The Italian club are holding out for at least €40m for him with the belief that they can get as much as €50m for him.
Nicolo Barella has built a reputation as one of the best midfielders in the Italian Serie A following his impressive outings for Cagliari since he broke into the first team two seasons.
His impressive Cagliari form has seen the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea express an interest in signing him.
Apart from the aforementioned clubs, Liverpool, Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur, and Inter Milan are also keen on a transfer for him.
