Maurizio Sarri open to John Terry returning to Chelsea as coach

Maurizio Sarri open to John Terry returning to Chelsea as coach

"My feeling is that we are not a very solid team in the defensive phase, we need to improve and we can, my feeling during the training is that this team can improve".

While he would welcome Terry's return to the club, Sarri has ruled out the 37-year-old coming back in the capacity of a squad member.

"If he wants to play for another season, it's right he tries to play".

Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "Like Liverpool and Watford, Chelsea have got a 100 per cent record from their first four league games and I see that ideal start continuing here".

'I think Man City will win the Premier League this season, with Liverpool just behind. I don't want to go there and not have a shot on target, but we've got to have players at their best abilities to give them a game'.

Chelsea have won their first four games under Sarri and Luiz has played in all of them. So he will be very important for everybody here.

The Spaniard will be rested following his worldwide retirement, and appears one of the most likely City players to start in Kevin De Bruyne's absence.

Guardiola called for Sane - who has played just 30 minutes in the league this season - to bounce back, but said it was too early to judge the former Schalke attacker.

"Unfortunately at the moment, I am not able to stop".

"We play against a very physical team, so I think if we want to gain points we need a very good performance tomorrow".

Cesar Azpilicueta will again lead out Chelsea against Cardiff despite the fact that Sarri has not decided on his permanent captain, as the Italian wants to discuss his choice with the players and the club before making his appointment public.

"It's a hard game for everybody, against Cardiff", Sarri added.

"I think Federation Internationale de Football Association has to change something for the national teams, because with four or five global breaks it is very hard for us".

Fabregas is likely to only be fit for a place on the bench, though, and could replace Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who picked up an injury on worldwide duty with England.
