EPL TITLE RACE : Sarri rules Chelsea out, tips City, Reds for success

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri has said he has been warning his Chelsea players all week about the danger of dropping points after global breaks as they prepare to resume their Premier League campaign at home to Cardiff City on Saturday.

But in the last 12 meetings, Chelsea won 10, including both previous Premier League encounters in the 2013-14 season.

"What I like about him is that he is so confident. It's what I really want to do".

"If there is a pitch and there are 11 players, I feel at home anywhere", Sarri said.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has waxed lyrical over David Luiz - insisting the Brazilian has a "big future" at Stamford Bridge.

"He wants to play with the ball, he wants to play with intensity, to work on the details and to give us all the information he can about the next game and the opponent".

Who's Afraid of the Sweden Democrats?
Both of the main blocs had indicated before the election that they would refuse to govern with the Sweden Democrats. Victory for the Sweden Democrats means that neither of these blocks got anything close to a parliamentary majority.

"It's up to him", Sarri told a news conference ahead of Saturday's home game against Cardiff City.

"We need another step to be at the same level".

Asked whether the title is unrealistic, Sarri added: "I think so. It's very hard. The gap was 30 points at the beginning of the season".

"We need to improve".

Ampadu featured throughout pre-season for the Blues but is yet to make a competitive appearance for Maurizio Sarri's side this term.

"The feeling is always that we will win, and this is a great feeling, because I've been playing football for many, many years and if you feel that way every day, it means you're in the right place". 'They are very, very young and they are, for sure, the future of the club.' Loftus-Cheek is a doubt for the game against Cardiff as Chelsea return to Premier League action following the global break.
