Stop comparing Conte and Sarri - says Chelsea's Rudiger

Adjust Comment Print

Already Chelsea have demonstrated an ability to overcome different kinds of tests, recovering to claim victory after squandering a two-goal lead against Arsenal in the previous home game and finally breaking Newcastle's resolute defence last weekend. I'm very happy with the four matches, but I think only, starting from now, about the next match. I think he will be important for sure.

"I think he can be a Premier League starter at Chelsea".

Sarri is delighted with the win and is happy that his players showed the patience to keep playing their football in order to get the goal as he was confident that breakthrough would come in the final quarter of the game. I think he needs to improve from the tactical point of view.

The Belgian playmaker was in fine form against the Cherries and he netted the Blues' second goal with a powerful finish at Stamford Bridge to wrap up the three points for the west London side and maintain their 100 per cent start to the new season.

"We are at the beginning of the season, and the gap between us and Man City was 30 points last season - it's hard to close that gap in one season". "They defended very aggressively and the situation was not so easy".

"The first half, the situation was hard".

After finishing outside of the top four in the Premier League last season, Chelsea were forced to settle for Europa League football instead of the Champions League this season. For example, in the first half we needed to move the ball at a faster speed. We'll see if Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea focus on Europe this season, while Sevilla are specialists in the cup competitions. They are doing well in the week and the matches. "At the moment, we crossed three, four, five times, so I thought Giroud, in that moment, was better".

Fans had always quietly considered him an underrated player and his performances in a Chelsea shirt are really showing off his quality.
