"If he wants to play for another season, it is right he tries to play".

Maurizio Sarri has dismissed Chelsea's chances of winning the title this season and believes it will be a straight fight between Manchester City and Liverpool.

"If he wants to help us, I'm very, very happy". "[But] in this first period, for me, it was very important not to change, especially the defensive line".

"We need another step, I think, to be the same level". "It's very hard. The gap was 30 points at the beginning of the season".

"We need to improve".

Chelsea defender David Luiz has claimed that Maurizio Sarri's attitude towards life is the reason why the Italian is enjoying his time on and off the pitch.

Chelsea will also welcome back Cesc Fabregas who has been sidelined since the season started with an injury and Sarri is ecstatic that the former Arsenal midfielder will be fit enough to feature.

Sarri is known as a heavy smoker and said during the global break his father was trying to persuade him to quit.

The 59-year-old's preferred playing style, which sees his team play short, snappy passes, certainly suits the Brazilian.

But the timing of the fixture makes a damaging setback more likely according to Sarri, who said that he encountered a similar problem during his time in charge of Napoli.

"My father told me to stop in the last 20 years, I think". He has won everything with the club.' Asked about the possibility of Terry joining Chelsea as a player, Sarri said: 'It would be on the coaching staff, I think, because, as I've said before, we want to give space to the young players.
