Makelele: Sarri can ‘make history’ at Chelsea

Makelele: Sarri can ‘make history’ at Chelsea

'I think Man City will win the Premier League this season, with Liverpool just behind.

Maurizio Sarri has claimed he does not see Chelsea challenging for the Premier League title in his debut season in charge, adding that Manchester City and Liverpool are now the main title contenders.

" Here is John Terry's home, he would be very important for everyone here".

"Always I say that I want to stay at Chelsea as long as possible, and I am happy to stay here".

The Blues have won all of their first four games in the Premier League and there is no denying that Sarri's tactics have been a refreshing change for the players.

Josh Murphy has a hamsrtring strain that will be assessed on the day, whilst Aron Gunnarson is still nursing a knee problem and unlikely to be risked.

Zuckerberg, 34, and his wife Priscilla Chan said in 2015 that they planned to give away 99 per cent of their Facebook stock. Amazon is designating 47,000 square feet of space at its new corporate office for a permanent Mary's Place shelter.

The 30-year-old's hopes of securing a new two-year deal are, however, complicated by Chelsea's policy of usually only offering one-year contracts to players who are 30 or over. At the moment he is able to be on the bench.

'The only thing I can think of (as to why the move didn't happen) is that our deadline was two or three weeks earlier and (Chelsea) might have been thinking of using him in their own squad. "It's very hard. The gap last season was 30 points (between fifth-place Chelsea's 70 and City's 100) so to go above 30 points in one season is very, very hard".

All of Chelsea's other first-team players have returned back from the global break unscathed, although they will need to be assessed for fatigue by Sarri.

"We play against a very physical team, so I think if we want to gain points we need a very good performance tomorrow". Only because after the first season the players understood the difficulty of this kind of match.

Only Liverpool and Watford have matched Chelsea's impressive start, with champions Manchester City two points behind having drawn with Wolves last month. "We need another step to be at the same level", said the Blues head coach.

"But at the moment I feel good, so I am not thinking of my retirement".
