"I play a little bit more forward", the 27-year-old Kante said.

Sarri suggested Mateo Kovacic, who has joined the club on loan from Real Madrid, may also be ready to start against Newcastle but the coach is unsure whether Chelsea can complete a permanent deal for the Croatia midfielder. In the other way you depend on the movements of the opponent.

Asked if experienced players find his approach to defending scary, Sarri replied: "For two or three months".

Against the Gunners, it took a late victor from left-back Marcos Alonso to secure a 3-2 victory after Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi had cancelled out Chelsea's early two-goal lead. I think Abramovich knows it.

From playing a 3-4-3 formation under previous manager Antonio Conte, Chelsea are now deploying in a 4-3-3 formation under Sarri. If they called on me 40 days ago, it's because they [the club] wanted to see my football here.

Thierry, father of Chelsea player, Kylian, has confirmed that the player has found a club in Spain to spend the season on loan.

Sarri admitted that the term "Sarri-Ball" was created by the media, while he was happy to reveal how his team is supposed to play. "Not for players. For me it was more that during the transfer window, there were players who were coming or maybe not coming, then especially players maybe leaving or not leaving, like when we had two or three players who had offers".

Newcastle dominated that game with two goals from Perez and one from Dwight Gayle.

"I learned a lot, sometimes you have to be patient, sometimes you have to take care of your body, sometimes you have to learn from outside to be good in the future".

Sarri said: "I don't know. But I think we can do it for 90 minutes". We were immediately in trouble. "We work on defending every week and I am not anxious because, when I arrive at a new team, usually I have problems with the defensive phase for two or three months", he said.

Sarri succeeded the Spaniard at the San Paolo and earned rave reviews and the respect of top European coaches for the style of football he implemented at Napoli.
