Why I changed my system against Burnley,Maurizio Sarri

Timothy Aiyeku



West London outfit Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has got to answer a number of questions for the substitution he made and the system change in the game against Burnley at the weekend.

The Blues could not secure a win in the game as they struggled to earn a draw in the game with a late goal by Belgium international Eden Hazard.

Maurizio Sarri had brought in Loftus-Cheek and Hudson Odoi in the second half as he explained that he wanted to have a more physical presence in the opposition box which is why he brought in the former.

He added that the latter was brought in because of his ability to get on a player one-against-one as it was not possible to change the match at that point in time but noted that he had to change the formation for the first time, explaining that he played with a 4-2-3-1 in the last minute of the game.

The former Napoli boss stated that the issue his team had was the way the players played, noting that they were too slow moving forward.

However, the West London outfit will have to play more games to know their fate as regards their return to the Champions League next season.
