Chelsea’s unrelenting march to reclaim their lost seat within the Premier League top-four, makes them equally as lethal and brutal as Liverpool and Manchester City.
City and Liverpool are both riding not just on the amazing intellect employed by their club bosses, but on hardwork and talent, a characteristic that is replete in Chelsea.
City want to boss possession, same as Liverpool and likewise Chelsea, whose midfield is the spine of the flurry of attacks against opponents.
Chelsea’s fluidity and Sarri’s ability to bend the squad the way he likes can be pegged to the deepness in his squad.
Sarri wants play to be dictated from the middle of the park, Jorginho acting as his enforcer and Kante winning balls back from opponents.
While these two have been hugely washed with praised and already spotlighted for more accolades, it easy to forget England duo Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who have emerged surprisingly out of unknowns.
Barkley barely survived under Antonio Conte, shadowed by Fabregas and looked set to be fading out. However, somehow he has re-emerged and the 15 million pounds January signing from Everton is undoubtedly enjoying one of the best moments of his career under Sarri.
Rumours heaped about Loftus-Cheek leaving Chelsea. But with convincing displays in the Europa League and Carabao Cup, it is unlikely Chelsea will lose their grip now. Sarri will have to start playing both of them now, if he’s keen on keeping them in his squad. Playing Loftus-Cheek as a false striker, given misfirings from Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud, could solve the one hundred thousand dollars question.
