Chelsea legend compares new manager Maurizio Sarri and Antonio Conte

A Chelsea star, who was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United recently, has admitted he would not still be at Stamford Bridge were it not for a significant change at the club. I think he's their main threat.

The Italian coach opted for a three-man midfield of Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and Ross Barkley, who was replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the second half.

It's also reported that Sarri has loosened rules on players' diets in the build-up to games because Conte's strict nutrition rules didn't endear himself to many at the club.

He started on the bench during the Blues' emphatic 3-0 opening Premier League victory over Huddersfield Town, but the academy graduate will be hoping to start against Arsenal on Sunday.

Where will Chelsea finish in the Premier League this season?

But the 25-year-old, for whom Chelsea paid Real Madrid £58 million ($75m) a year ago, is expected to lead the line for Maurizio Sarri's new-look Blues side despite falling short of expectations so far. "Now we have a different style, that's why we can create problems for Arsenal (on Saturday)".

Tedesco proved last season that he could set up a team of young players to play attacking, winning football. "He did it at Napoli and it worked extremely well, so I am looking forward to actually seeing him do that because I think it is going to be very exciting to see Chelsea on the front foot and passing it around teams".

"That's why Sarri talked about "fun" football because he wants to build from the back". The former Everton man joined us last season but didn't impress a lot under Antonio Conte.

This is not, as some appear to have assumed, a ranking of Chelsea's best players.

Willian believes the fresh tactical approach can help Sarri secure a win over fellow new Premier League boss Emery.
