Maurizio Sarri axes two of Antonio Conte's rules to win over players

Chelsea news Ruben Loftus Cheek will want to have an impact at Stamford Bridge this season

Chelsea's players were unhappy with some of Antonio Conte's rules on nutrition and matchday preparation.

Willian has admitted that he would have left Chelsea if Conte had remained at the helm but now that Maurizio Sarri has taken over, it sounds like the squad will be much happier.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante.

But he looks set to stay in London with the transfer deadline for Premier League clubs now having passed, meaning the Blues are unlikely to entertain any further bids from foreign clubs.

The new Chelsea manager has abandoned the practice of the squad staying together at the Chelsea Harbour hotel on nights before they have an evening game at Stamford Bridge the following day, a measure that was introduced by Conte and was unpopular with numerous players.

"I want to be scoring goals, creating goals and, towards the end of the season, there will hopefully be a prize, with a trophy or a couple of trophies".

Puig takes swing at Hundley, both ejected as benches clear
The LA outfielder responded, and when Hundley stood up to continue the conversation, Puig shoved Hundley twice in the chest. It was the fourth career ejection for Puig, who had also got into a skirmish with Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner in 2014.

"That's why Sarri talked about "fun" football because he wants to build from the back".

"Now the system is something different, especially the way we play now", said Kante.

That approach was rarely successful against Arsenal, who Chelsea host at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The 24-year-old only played two Premier League games for us last season but seems to be in great shape under Sarri.

The winger is confident that Sarri's tactics will help rectify Chelsea's recent poor record against Arsenal, where they had just one win in eight matches under previous manager Antonio Conte, when they meet in Saturday's league match.
