Makelele: Sarri can ‘make history’ at Chelsea

Makelele: Sarri can ‘make history’ at Chelsea

However, the 31-year-old has been reinstated in the starting line-up after the arrival of Sarri and he is apparently relishing working under him.

Chelsea have defeated Huddersfield, Arsenal, Newcastle and Bournemouth, and are one of only three teams to boast a 100 per cent record.

The Blues have won all four of their opening games in the league so far this season under the newly appointed Sarri and are only behind Liverpool on goal difference in the standings.

'I know I have two years of contract left but I hope to stay more years in the Premier League'.

These headaches didn't seem to hinder the progress of Sarri's revolution, because as Darke points out the transfer window passed with Chelsea having kept hold of many of their key assets as well as bringing in Napoli midfield technician Jorginho and Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to replace the departed Courtois.

Bird attacked the victim over the course of several hours, prosecutors said, at times throwing her against a wall. Bird was originally scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, but that was delayed as he remained hospitalized at St.

Chelsea endured a hard campaign in 2017-18 and their dismal performance only helped them finish 5th in the league table, which made them unqualified to participate in the UEFA Champions League. "I have won titles and played a lot of games with a lot of happy moments, and a few sad moments as well but that is part of football, but these five years have been very good for me and I am proud to be a Chelsea player".

"A lot of people, they say a lot of things in the press, but I never said that I want to leave Chelsea, never", he told the club's website.

The Brazilian fell out of favour under Antonio Conte last season and was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in the summer before re-establishing himself under Sarri.

"I think he has the capacity to make history for Chelsea again".

While it could be argued that they are yet to be properly tested so far this season, they can only beat what is put in front of them.
