Sarri on injuries: “Fabregas is out for this match. I hope he will be able to be on the pitch in the next week. Nothing serious, but he has an unusual injury, nothing serious. I hope he will have a training session this week. He has a pain near the knee, not the knee but near it”

Sarri on Hazard: “I have spoken to him often in ten days, but he has never said anything about this. I am sure Eden will be with us this season”

Sarri: “Kante for physical characteristics he is very quick ready to play. He is ready, but for the other players for the World Cup it is a little bit different”

Sarri: “For everyone it is difficult against Manchester City. I think Emery is a very good coach. He won three times the Europa League, three times in France and I think Arsenal this season will be competitive and fight for a place in the Champions League.”

Sarri: “I am not worried about Morata. He is a very good player. I think in this moment he only needs to gain confidence. He is a great player. He needs to score. As all the strikers in the world. But he is improving so I am not worried about him”

Sarri: “It has been very difficult, but it has been for every club especially the most important clubs with the World Cup, with friendly matches in Oz, Dublin and France. We started to work together ten days ago. In my opinion I think in two months we can be a very good team”

Sarri: “At the moment there is a club above the others, Manchester City. We have to reach our 101% of our potential and then we will see. I don’t know what can happen. My feeling is that we can be a very good team. In this moment I think so (City) are ahead”

Sarri on Kovacic: I think Mateo will be very useful for us. At this moment he has to work, he is not ready for 90 minutes but maybe tomorrow for the last 30 minutes. I ask a lot for him, because for me is a very good player and in my opinion he can improve more”

Sarri on Kovacic: “I think he can play in the three midfielders, it is the same for him centre left or right. He is a very good offensive player, but he has improved during two years at Real.”

Sarri on first league match at Stamford Bridge: “I am looking forward because I am the coach of one of the most important clubs in Europe and it is my first London derby.”



We’ll include more later on.
