Chelsea v PAOK: An easy win for Blues against grim Greeks

Under fire Kante

"But Kante has to stay near to Jorginho, especially when the ball is on the other side".

Sarri previously has encouraged Kante to go forward in matches.

Sarri did not hold back in his criticism of Chelsea's performance immediately after the Spurs loss, and he held individual meetings with his players on their return to training on Monday.

However, Sarri's appointment as manager in July prompted the arrival of Italy global Jorginho in a £57m deal to help the Italian boss implement his style at Stamford Bridge.

"I want to play as a center midfielder a very technical player", Sarri said Wednesday.

Russian Federation pounds Syrian rebel areas after ‘toxic gas attack’ injures dozens
The UN-OPCW team also accused the Islamic State (IS) extremist group of using mustard gas twice in 2015 and 2016. The chemical attack seems to have provided Russian Federation with a justification to pound their territory.

'I talk to them player by player.

After two games without a win Chelsea will be keen to play their way back into form, and I expect Sarri to pick a strong enough side to win this with room to spare.

However, Pochettino's targeted man-marking of Jorginho using multiple players to do so severely affected Chelsea's ball transition.

Prior to the start of this season, there were rumours that the Spaniard could be on his way back to Santiago Bernabeu due to his inability score plenty goals during the previous season. "I don't want Kante in this position". "He just needs to adapt to what the manager wants". But we have to understand why we played against Tottenham without determination. Andreas Christensen and Gary Cahill have played together several times in Europe this season and I expect they'll get another chance to impress against POAK tomorrow night. But their deficiencies were expertly covered up by Kante - the best defensive midfielder in the world bar none.

"The numbers will be big and I think he's not quite there yet in terms of being a ready-made impact player".

Jazz seek to defend better versus Lakers
LeBron James had 24 points and seven assists for the Lakers, who had won three straight games and six of their past seven. The good news is that the Lakers are still playing well despite the fact that they are still developing team chemistry.

There has been talk this week of moving Kante deeper into the role which is now occupied by Jorginho, but Sarri is having none of it.

Hazard was likely to be rested anyway on Thursday, but given his recent recovery from a back problem, the Blues will not risk him.

Chelsea will be without Eden Hazard as they look to secure first place in their Europa League group.

Victor Moses is not in contention to make his seventh appearance of the season in all competitions when Chelsea host Chuba Akpom's PAOK in the UEFA Europa League today.
