Maurizio Sarri Doesn't Trust Either Striker - Chelsea Legend

01 January, 2019, 12:56 | Author: George Williams
  • Chelsea has signed Borussia Dortmund's midfielder Christian Pulisic for €64 million

With Wednesday's meeting with Southampton the start of a run of seven games in January, Sarri was left hoping Giroud's injury was not as bad as first feared.

He has made a total 499 appearances for both Chelsea and Arsenal, and one more would see him reach his target ahead of his expected departure.

The Blues could have been forgiven for thinking the trip to Selhurst Park could be a banana skin and a tricky test to overcome, but if they did think that it did not show on the pitch, as they displayed a confidence and an assurance that saw them ease to victory.

The Chelsea defender hasn't always been everyone's cup of tea, with his occasional lapses in concentration often proving costly, but there were no such problems on Sunday in a fine display.

Palace frustrated Chelsea in the same way they have against other teams this season but as soon as N'Golo Kante scored in the 51st minute they offered too little in response to earn a draw. What contrast in the space of a few days. Yesterday in 10 minutes we had three injuries - Fabregas, Loftus and Drinkwater - and today we had Pedro and Odoi out. Fabregas is a neck problem.

In the last five minutes, Wilfried Zaha blasted over, while substitute Connor Wickham repeated the trick shortly afterwards as Palace fired another blank. He is improving in this kind of movement, When the opponents defended with very low intensity, it is hard for he striker and wingers to find the spaces so we have to arrive with a midfielder.

Still, there appears the added competition from AC Milan, although the Italian side's Financial Fair Play concerns may mean that the Blues could take advantage over the proceedings by discussing a straight-cash deal rather than going with monthly settlements.

"It's about the movement of the midfielders". We have to work on Loftus and Ross Barkley on this.

Sarri said that his players were in control of the game but didn't kill the match.

'He's someone with the profile we're looking for, and the ability we are looking for.

"First of all, we've got to try and make certain we do get him here on loan".
