Sarri backs Loftus-Cheek to make Chelsea impact

Cesar Azpilicueta

Former Chelsea man Nathan Ake spurned a glorious chance to break the deadlock early in the second half, failing to connect properly with the ball from barely a yard out, as Bournemouth continued to frustrate the Blues.

Sarri had warned before the opening game of the league campaign that his side would face a hard start as he attempted to implement a very different approach to that employed by Conte.

"We have had good games against Chelsea and have really enjoyed them. But it's only a question of time, I think".

So far this season, however, Loftus-Cheek has made just one substitute appearance and faces midfield competition from the likes of Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley and Cesc Fabregas. "He could be the best left-back in the world".

DeSantis dismissed such concerns during a recent interview. " Most people think me or the mayor of Orlando is the incumbent". Trump initially tweeted his support for DeSantis before the congressman entered the race in January.

Sarri will breathe easily at the top of the table for another week, even if Chelsea's performances are yet to catch up with results. I also think he can improve in the defensive phase. "They defended very aggressively and the situation was not so easy".

The best and worst of David Luiz was on show in the first half.

The Blues have been crowned champions in four of the five previous seasons in which they won their first four games, but Sarri refuses to look beyond the next game - against Cardiff on September 15 - following the global break. It began some five years ago when Howe, then managing in the Championship, approached Sarri, at the time in charge at Empoli, asking if he might shadow him for a while.

Chelsea bossed the game from the opening minutes, but struggled to create any clear cut chances to open up the Bournemouth defence. "But in this kind of match, usually you can win in the last 20-25 minutes, so I was always confident". Starting from September we will play every three days. I am not able to guarantee to him a spot at the moment, but if he wants to remain, I'm really very happy with him.
