Sarri seeks reinforcements as Chelsea strengthen grip on fourth

Sarri seeks reinforcements as Chelsea strengthen grip on fourth

According to the Mirror, Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang will look to test the Blues' resolve to keep Willian at the club, and could rival the interest of Barcelona, who had a £50m bid turned down earlier in the week.

"We scored and then controlled the last few minutes of the first half so it's a pity but a piece of quality made the difference". To be fair we can not complain about what the players were doing on the pitch.

"Today Jorginho was in trouble and on the bench there wasn't a player for that position", Sarri said.

"With Eden playing as a striker we need wingers".

Willian scored the winning goal in Chelsea's Premier League 2-1 victory over Newcastle in the Premier League.

Yankees Sign Infielder, Appear to be Out on Machado
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic recently wrote that the Phillies actually prefer Machado over Harper in free agency. Despite being considered the favorites to sign LeMahieu, he has found a different home.


Newcastle's massed defence allowed them to use two players to harass Hazard whenever he took possession, rendering him neutralised for long periods.

Fabregas completed his permanent move to Monaco on Friday and Sarri's need was emphasised after he watched Jorginho struggle to dictate play against Newcastle.

When asked about Willian's contract, he added: "Maybe he has 12 years of contract, I don't know the detail". And Willian, of course. "You are trying to let me speak about something I don't know". "For us, in this moment, he is a fundamental player".

Newcastle have now lost 10 in a row away to the division's established top six, but they put up a good fight in West London, levelling up through Ciaran Clark after Pedro opened the scoring, only for Willian to win the match for Chelsea. After the goal, I think we thought now it's easy, but it wasn't.

Willian has been with the Blues since the summer of 2013 and during the past five-and-a-half seasons, he has contributed 49 goals from 268 appearances for the club. We need to improve in the mental reaction because after the first goal something happened. We stopped [playing] for 25 minutes. "In the last five matches for us it really was very hard to score", he said.
