I Believe In Maurizio Sarri's Philosophy, Chelsea Defender Insists

Justin GreeneSep 15, 2018

Conte won the Premier League title and FA Cup in his two years in charge but it was clear that he was looking for a way out.

"I think it is very hard for me and every coach", Sarri told a media conference on Friday.

"If there is a pitch and there are 11 players, I feel at home anywhere", he said.

Sarri has made a superb start to life in the Premier League, with Chelsea claiming four wins from four, however their momentum was halted by the first global break of the season.

He has also opened the door for former captain John Terry to return to Stamford Bridge as part of his coaching staff.

The 30-year-old's hopes of securing a new two-year deal are, however, complicated by Chelsea's policy of usually only offering one-year contracts to players who are 30 or over.

Cardiff are able to call upon Josh Murphy again after he recovered from a hamstring injury while Aron Gunnarsson is also back from a knee complaint but Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is still working his way back from a knee injury.

Chelsea attacker Pedro, who could make his 100th Premier League appearance in this match, has scored three goals his last four league games, as many as in his previous 26 combined.

"Mentally the match after the (international) break it is very hard; materially because we will play against a very physical team", he said. "It will be a very hard game for everybody who plays Cardiff".

When and what time is the Premier League match between Chelsea vs Cardiff City?

Only Liverpool and Watford have matched Chelsea's impressive start, with champions Manchester City two points behind having drawn with Wolves last month.

"We need another step to be at the same level".

"For me, it's a pleasure", Sarri said when asked if his days are long. My feeling is that now we are not a very solid team in the defensive phase.

"We play against a very physical team, if we want to gain points we need a very good performance".
