Lukasz Fabianski admits he still needs to improve at West Ham United

Sarri is a better coach for Chelsea’s defence than Conte says Azpilicueta

Sarri is a better coach for Chelsea’s defence than Conte says Azpilicueta

Sarri is still working to impose his playing style at Chelsea, and warned it could take at least 12 months for his team to reach a similar level to that of the Premier League leaders.

Chelsea's 100% record under Maurizio Sarri came to an end as they had to settle for a point at the London Stadium.

The Germany global joins Pedro Rodriguez on the sidelines, but the Chelsea head coach is hopeful of being able to call upon both when Liverpool visit Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday. "We need to show team character after the West Ham game, so there is nothing better than to play the team at the top of the League".

Liverpool made it a magnificent seven straight wins, from all competitions, to start the season by sweeping aside Southampton 3-0 at Anfield despite Jurgen Klopp taking the opportunity to utilise the depth of resources in his squad.

And Giroud, who won the World Cup with France this summer, says the two matches will be a good benchmark of their progress under Sarri. It was too slow, moving the ball to create the gaps or our movements without the ball, and that is why we couldn't score.

Russia to Supply Syria With S-300 Anti-Missile System - Minister
Russian Federation in April had hinted that it would supply the S-300 to Assad's government despite Israeli objections. Earlier in the war, Russian Federation suspended a supply of S-300s, which Israel feared Syria could use against it.

West Ham have had a nightmarish start to their season, winning only one of their first five games - and losing the other four.

"They will provide a real test of how good we are", the striker told the London Evening Standard. We started to work together 40 days ago and [have had] less time with the global [break].

Alvaro Morata, on as a second-half substitute for Olivier Giroud, was denied by keeper Łukasz Fabiański at close range. Now our opponents are starting to know Chelsea well so we need to bring something else.

The latest stories in the rivalry will be written this week as the two sides clash twice in under 72 hours, firstly in the Carabao Cup and secondly in the Premier League. I think this is right.

Sarri wants Hazard to focus his energies on the final third of the pitch. After seven matches it is hard in March and April, not now. "Maybe a spectacular match but, for us, very hard".
