Kovacic: Chelsea and Sarri believe in me

Chelsea news Paul Merson reveals the ONE player he is surprised Blues did not sell

"It was important that after three years of inconsistency in playing time in Madrid I've got into a team that wants me and a coach that wants and trust me, that's how Chelsea happened", he told Croatian outlet Klub.

Prior to May's FA Cup final, with Chelsea's absence from this season's Champions League confirmed by their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League, Hazard said the delay was because he was "waiting for good players".

On the touchline, Sarri, wearing a baggy blue T-shirt and track-suit pants, waved his arms in frustration as he implored his players to close Arsenal down in their own half as the Gunners showed signs of fighting their way into the game. "In the second half we did very well also mentally". Today we have seen that the fans quite like me.

'Stereotypes matter little. If a player has quality, they can make the grade anywhere.

'I want to score more than 30 goals, but I would prefer to score 15 or 20 and get the Premier League or one big trophy'.


Spain worldwide Morata opened his Premier League goalscoring account against Arsenal at the weekend, as the Blues ran out 3-2 winners over their London rivals at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard added: "Everybody knows what I said after the World Cup".

Morata also seems keen to lay down roots, having regularly been on the move during a career that has also taken in a spell at Juventus. That kind of talk hardly helps Morata shed his polite guy image but, equally, it reflects a level of determination on the part of the Spain forward.

Jorginho is set to start for Chelsea once again when they face Newcastle United next weekend.

Sarri said he started the match with Hazard on the bench because he still seemed exhausted after helping take Belgium to the World Cup semifinals in July, but he said Hazard would probably be ready to play 90 minutes within one or two weeks. "Three points is an important target for us, we did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes were disgusting", Sarri told reporters after the game. We lost ground, we were not able to press, we were not able to defend, we were really in trouble. Why would I not be happy? I am working fine and improving.
