Sarri tells Chelsea: I need a Cesc replacement

Sarri calls January exit for Willian 'impossible' amid Barcelona links

Maurizio Sarri reiterated that Chelsea must find a replacement for Cesc Fabregas in the January transfer window after admitting that Jorginho was "in trouble" during Saturday's 2-1 win over Newcastle.

The home side were cruising after Pedro's early goal but were pegged back by Ciaran Clark's equaliser shortly before half-time.

Jorginho's uncharacteristically error-prone performance made him the subject of particular ire.

He said, "As you have seen today, Jorginho was in trouble and on the bench there wasn't a player for that position, so I need a player for that position, I need another option for Jorginho".

Sarri also revealed he has told Chelsea's hierarchy he needs a new midfielder to replace Cesc Fabregas, who joined Monaco on Friday.

"It's not too much [of a worry for me]".

I have no idea [how soon a replacement will arrive].The club is anxious, I don't know.

"The club knows very well my opinion". I need the player there [in that position]. "I need a player there so it depends on the club's decision, I can't do anything more".

"I can not do any more".

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri was in no mood to discuss Willian's contract amid links with LaLiga champions Barcelona.

"My future is here at Chelsea, I don't know what you're talking about", he said.

Willian was unable to double his tally when, like Pedro before him, he was played through with a simple lofted pass, with Dubravka this time getting a touch to the attempted lob. [Hudson-Odoi] is becoming for us a really important player.

Once again, Sarri stubbornly stuck to his experiment with Eden Hazard as Chelsea's central striker despite the Belgian star's dislike of the tactic. "In my opinion, Willian has to stay with us. For us, he's fundamental". We need to improve in the mental reaction because after the first goal something happened. "We started very well for 10 minutes".

"After the goal, I think we thought "now it's easy", but it wasn't", he said.

It was just his fifth goal of the season and first in the league since October but Willian told BT Sport: "I think it's always hard in the Premier League". It was only Willian's fifth goal of a disappointing season and the Brazilian's first in the league since October. "We stopped playing and then we had problems". We need to improve.

"Today was very important to get points. For now, it's enough".
