Crystal Palace - Premier League - 4 November 2018

Chelsea are the top contenders to the Premier League title alongside Liverpool and Manchester City.

But as the domestic schedule intensifies in December, Sarri said he expects that situation to change. 'We defended well at Burnley, then three days later we weren't able to defend in the same way. It is unsafe to not have continuity, we need to improve continuity. In the future we need to become a very solid team.

He added: "They have to improve, but the characteristics are a little bit different". This is my work.

"I'm pleased now, after a period when he didn't seem to be getting many chances, that he's gone into the team and shown what we saw in him - that he's a top-class player".

Sarri will be without Olivier Giroud for Sunday's home match against Crystal Palace but Eden Hazard is fit to play up to 45 minutes.

Sarri also announced that he wants to keep Ruben Loftus-Cheek , amid rumours of a January loan move, in the same press conference.

Moses established himself as a key figure at right wing-back under Antonio Conte, but Sarri's arrival has seen Chelsea switch to a 4-3-3 formation and the Nigerian is once again battling for minutes on the wing with Eden Hazard, Pedro and Willian. If I need to cover immediately the lost ball we need to have good positions over the line in the defensive line. The potential is great'. Much was made of Christian Benteke's iffy form last term, but Jordan Ayew hasn't been much of an improvement, and Roy Hodgson must be wondering why none of his midfielders are chipping in in open play; Andros Townsend and James McArthur in particular are well capable of contributing, but are leaving Wilfried Zaha to do too much.

Reports rom London said Sarri has already held clear-the-air talks with Moses and told the star he is not in plans for the team, hence his absence on Wednesday.

Drinkwater had offers for a loan move over the summer from more than one Premier League club but they were thrown out by Chelsea as they didn't offer enough of a loan fee, with the club hoping to sell him outright.
