Sarri says Chelsea have 'tactical problem' after Loftus-Cheek stars

Sarri says Chelsea have 'tactical problem' after Loftus-Cheek stars

The England worldwide completed his brace from a corner-kick as Loftus-Cheek sneaked in to steal the shot and it was 2-0 to Chelsea.

Chelsea fans were clearly delighted to see one of their own impressing on such a stage but Sarri's bench seemed as delighted, rising to their feet as Loftus-Cheek got his hat-trick to give him a standing ovation.

Chelsea delivered a convincing performance despite Sarri making eight changes to the team that drew with Manchester United, as numerous players frustrated on the fringes of his squad were handed rare starts. Only [N'Golo] Kante is a defensive midfielder. I want to score more goals, to play more games, but at the end of the day the most important thing is the team wins, the other things come with that.

I need to come and get on the ball, connect with the midfielders and the wingers, and then I need to attack the box after that - but not to be in the box all the time.




It was Loftus-Cheek's first Chelsea goal since April 2016 but Sarri insists the midfielder, who has become a formidable part of Gareth Southgate's England thinking, must still improve to earn a regular spot in his team. "We're trying to solve the problem for Sunday". "Ask to play 16, 17?" "In the future I may be able to put [Ross] Barkley and Loftus in the same starting XI".

The England worldwide has found playing time hard to come by this term, but grasped a rare chance afforded by head coach Maurizio Sarri as the Blues made it three wins from three in Group L to close on the knockout stages.

Aside from Hazard, the only confirmed injury absentee is Ethan Ampadu, who remains sidelined for the next week or two with a knee problem.

"As I said after the match, we were wrong", Sarri added. "We can try and we will work, but I need the cooperation of the players".
