Sky Pundit Dismisses 'Struggling' Newcastle's Chances Of Getting A Result Against Chelsea

  • Jorginho

Maurizio Sarri says he is unsure whether Eden Hazard is ready to play a full 90 minutes for Chelsea.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez admits he sympathises with the club's fans, but has called for their support ahead of planned protests before Sunday's home game against Chelsea, live on Sky Sports.

The £57million signing of Jorginho from Napoli and the loan addition of Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid have seemingly pushed Loftus-Cheek further down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard himself has ruled out leaving the club this month, and Sarri insists that selling their star asset would not be possible until they are able to identify and secure a replacement - something they will not be able to do until January at the earliest.

"I chose to put two wingers and only one midfielder on the bench [against Arsenal]", Sarri said in explanation of Loftus-Cheek's absence.

Hazard has come off the bench in each of Sarri's Premier League games in charge, with the Blues taking maximum points from two matches. He further added "With Arsenal, there's a new manager still, but I think the first two games they had were very, very hard, so I think they'll start picking up points now".

"I am the coach of a very good team". And what I think is more important'.

Loftus-Cheek impressed on loan at Crystal Palace last season - earning a place in England's World Cup squad - and said in July that Chelsea's lack of faith in him has had an effect on his cofidence.

Asked if Hazard will start against Newcastle, Sarri said: "I don't know".

'I think he will remain with us. So I think we did very well.

The prospect of Chelsea playing this kind of football, especially after the dross we endured under Antonio Conte last season, was incredibly exciting - and we haven't been disappointed.

As reported by Football London, there are five Chelsea players among the 15 who have completed the most successful passes in the Premier League this season.
