Sarri's unbeaten start goes on and aside from the momentum that brings, there is a real calmness to Chelsea's belief that they can win regardless of the match situation.
"So I thought that it was the same here".
"Moses is more suitable for playing wing back than like a winger or a fullback, I think". I don't know [if they have a future at Chelsea].
Last week against Burnley, Chelsea proved they can manage without Eden Hazard, scoring four goals with four different goalscorers and will have to do so again for at least a half with the Belgian not fully fit. Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
"I am a little bit surprised but the record is not of the coach, it's of the team", said Sarri.
"I don't want to think about the record now, because we have to think only about the match", Sarri said.
"Ninety minutes are 90 minutes".
Kevin De Bruyne to miss Manchester United clash after knee injury setback
De Bruyne was making just his second start of the season, though City have moved top of the Premier League without him. It was the only sour moment on a comfortable night for City as they eased into the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup.
The Blues warmed up for the game with a 3-2 victory over Frank Lampard's Derby County in midweek to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup but it's league matters that are the focus tomorrow. So I think the rotation is good. "So we need to change in the Premier 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.
"It is my work, I think". When I arrived here the gap was 30 points, so the first step is to try and cover the gap.
"There are still a lot of games, and a lot of things for us to do, so I think we just have to focus and take it game by game". We need to cover immediately the lost ball.
Subs not used: Caballero, Loftus-Cheek, Zappacosta, Cahill.
Few could have envisioned a better start under Sarri, whose players have nearly instantly adapted to his methods and expectations. It is not possible that every player is good enough to play here when he is 19 or 20. Morata is also finally meeting the standard required of a striker at an elite club - now the challenge is simply for him to keep it up.
His introduction for the first time since the draw with Manchester United appeared more likely when Palace levelled after Luiz had been caught cold. If you look at the top of the table. And if you are not a solid team you can not have very important targets.
