Maurizio Sarri says Alvaro Morata has 'great potential' after Chelsea win

Aaron Wan Bissaka has impressed this season

The Blues return to Premier League action next Sunday against Everton at Stamford Bridge.

Drinkwater, a £30 million signing from Leicester City in the summer of 2017, has not featured in any competition for Chelsea since the Community Shield in August and Sarri suggested that the England global will not be playing for him any time soon.

Sarri explained why the duo are not featuring much in the early stages of his tenure at the club.

"So I thought that it was the same here".

"I have to think I only have to help these players to improve", he said.

"I think that here I have been lucky". I don't know [if they have a future]. "They have to improve but their characteristics are a little bit different".

Sarri has consistently maintained he feels a Premier League title race will prove beyond Chelsea this term.

Goal also revealed that Moses was unhappy about his status at the club a fortnight ago and the duo could be set for January departures.

On Wednesday when Sarri named a largely second team in the Carabao Cup clash with Derby County, Moses was not even in the matchday squad prompting questions on his continued stay with the London side.

"In that moment we needed Hazard", said Sarri.

Loftus-Cheek enjoyed a very fruitful 25-game loan spell at Selhurst Park last season and played a big part in guiding them away from relegation trouble. You have to look at the League Cup, Europa League and the national team.

"I have to look also to the minutes in the national teams".

"I don't think it will stop Hazard going there". You need to make one of their world-class players do something special. He made an enormous impression, played extremely well and was a decisive figure towards the end of the season when we started to really climb up the league.

"In Naples, everybody wanted to win Serie A. Only Serie A. So maybe this atmosphere influenced my choices". Meanwhile, Crystal Palace were beaten by Championship side Middlesbrough in the same competition, their fifth consecutive game without a win.

Few could have envisioned a better start under Sarri, whose players have nearly instantly adapted to his methods and expectations.

Up ahead in attack, the good news is that Eden Hazard is available.

That is broadly because Zaha is his club's biggest creative danger and its main goal threat, a man trying to be in two places at once. The Blues lie only 2 points behind Manchester City and Liverpool, who occupy the top two spots. For me Cahill is important on and off the pitch as captain'.

The win left Chelsea second in the table, two points behind leaders Manchester City, and 11 games unbeaten means Maurizio Sarri equalled a Premier League record for a new manager at the start of their first season.
