Maurizio Sarri explains Callum Hudson-Odoi’s absence in Chelsea FC loss

Maurizio Sarri loves to have extensive midfield options, which we have seen this season at Chelsea and in the past few seasons with Napoli as well. If I have fun with my football, I want to play my football. So, first of all, I want to play very well my football.

The Blues slipped to fifth in the Premier League table after suffering a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on Wednesday.

Naturally, his absence from the starting XI for Chelsea FC's 4-0 loss to Bournemouth on the south coast fuelled speculation that a move to Bayern could be on the cards. "We have four wingers, I had two on the pitch and one on the bench".

On whether he required reassurances from the Chelsea hierarchy, six months into a three-year contract, Sarri replied: "I don't mind because I am a dreamer". You start to play every three days in August. We expected another result tonight.

With Chelsea now out of the top four - below Arsenal on goals scored - in the race for Champions League qualification, there's even the danger Sarri's job could be at risk if the team loses to last-place Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Then we can go and change something.

Chelsea to win to nil is disappointingly short at [1.69], but if you want to squeeze a bit more out of it you could back a Chelsea/No BTTS double at [1.73], which is effectively the same thing for a slightly better price.

US, China resume trade talks with a chill in the air
Trump had tweeted earlier Thursday that a final deal would not be made until he and Xi meet in the "near future". It would make "so much sense" for China to "finally do a Real Deal", he wrote on Twitter this month.

"Of course I'd like to see him stay and I'd also say that he has the potential to be the best player in Europe currently" added the Italian coach. If it is the last pass, then he has not adapted.

"We can improve, we can change mentality and we can play our football". I want to play my football.

Sarri held a 50-minute inquest with his players after the Bournemouth game and was quoted in Italy as saying they did not understand the basics of his approach.

He told LeoVegas: 'I don't understand why Sarri insists on playing him out of position.

"Why?" he said. "First of all, I want to do Plan A very well".

When asked about the performances of Eden Hazard, which some have said have suffered from continued speculation linking him with Real Madrid, Sarri was diplomatic.
