Sarri: Chelsea need to improve 'mentally and technically' despite win over Newcastle

Asked when he expects a Fabregas replacement - reportedly a straight choice between Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes and Cagliari star Nicolo Barella - to arrive, Sarri replied: "I have no idea". We know that we have hard games and we play against two or three of the top sides in a row.

"My future is here at Chelsea, I don't know what you're talking about", he said. The club knows very well my opinion. Always I talk about the final third decisions.

"I can not do any more".

Willian has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Chelsea but he was adamant he wanted to stay at the west London club.

Pedro timed his run behind Clark perfectly and held off the centre-back's weak attempt to recover as he lofted a delicate chip over Newcastle keeper Martin Dubravka for his seventh goal of the season.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri refused to discuss Willian's future at Stamford amid reports linking him with Barcelona.

"You know very well that Willian is a very important player", he said.

US Moves in Syria Irk Russia, Turkey
Turkey considers America's Kurdish allies of the YPG militia - who were vital in the ground war against ISIS - a terrorist group. It said a convoy of ten armoured vehicles and some trucks had pulled out of Rmeilan, in Syria's north west, into Iraq.

Newcastle's massed defence allowed them to use two players to harass Hazard whenever he took possession, rendering him neutralised for long periods.

"[Callum] Hudson-Odoi is becoming for us a very important player".

Sarri added: "With Eden as a striker we need wingers".

Chelsea are now assessing the position of Callum Hudson-Odoi amid the regular attempts from Bayern Munich to prise him away and the teenage graduate appears the likelier to leave the club this month. "In this moment he is a fundamental player".

Spain winger Pedro opened the scoring for the home side on the 9th minute.

'I scored a good goal.

With Chelsea fans beginning to lose patience at their team's latest spluttering home display, Willian lifted the mood in the nick of time with his superb second-half curler. We need to improve in the mental reaction because after the first goal something happened. We scored after nine minutes, so we did not have to face difficulty.
