Adjust Comment Print

"It's what I really want to do". He has won everything with the club so it is up to him.

Chelsea hero Claude Makelele admits he misses his time at Stamford Bridge.

"For sure he will be a point of reference for me, for everybody here".

Chelsea will host to Cardiff City and Luiz will be looking to help his side keep a clean sheet and maintain their 100 per cent record.

Maurizio Sarri has dismissed Chelsea's chances of winning the title this season and believes it will be a straight fight between Manchester City and Liverpool. "[But] in this first period, for me, it was very important not to change, especially the defensive line".

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

"I hope in the future I will be able to give him space, to give space to [Callum Hudson] Odoi and [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek". The gap was 30 points at the beginning of the season.

"Against a physical and aggressive team it will be a hard test for us". "I think we need to improve".

Cesc Fabregas is fit again following a knee injury, but Sarri suggested it may be more beneficial for the playmaker to train this weekend, rather than be a substitute.

Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri is happy to welcome John Terry back to the club, with the former defender given the chance to choose his own role.

"I'm trying to stress this number to my players, just telling them this number, my experience in this situation".

"My father told me to stop in the last 20 years, I think".

Sarri's smoking ban would be only temporary, "for one, two years, yes".

"The feeling is always that we will win, and this is a great feeling, because I've been playing football for many, many years and if you feel that way every day, it means you're in the right place".
