Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea boss says his side need consistency

Chelsea have travelled to southern Sweden for the first leg of the last 32 of the Europa League.

"Not in this week", Sarri said when asked if he had been in contact with Abramovich. I wouldn't put it past him to take this metaphorical tiger on in fight. I would like to speak to someone of the club, not necessarily the owner.

The start of the Champions League knockout stages has seen the introduction of VAR in Europe's premier club competition.

"But I think that is true for all our players". It might not have been the most eye-catching goal since Sarri took over, but it likely brought with it the most relief.

The Blues have a tough run of fixtures over the remainder of this month, starting with the FA Cup fifth-round tie with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Monday. The ball sailed into the back of the net easily, however, head official Damir Skomina was called to the VAR screen for a second look. "We need targets in the short term and then [we can] dream in the long term". The worst, not being able to be with my teammates for the return leg. In the last period, we had a problem about up and down - 4-0, 5-0, 6-0 - we needed to have continuity and consistency. It is hard, but now it is the past. "Now is a good opportunity tomorrow to win and get our best confidence".

Sarri was the key driver in the Higuain deal having worked successfully with him previously at Napoli and Chelsea moved away from their traditional transfer model of signing players under the age of 30 in order to get him on board.

"No, for the team it is clear the idea of Maurizio", he added.

Let us look at the five things we learned from this encounter between two historic sides.

"We had chances to have a more comfortable result but they scored and there is still a lot to play for next week".

"But sometimes it's so hard to play in this way".

As well as the disallowed goal, Tadic hit a post and Ajax were full value for their equaliser scored by Hakim Ziyech. When you face Juventus, it's hard for everyone to win.

"They had chances, I made some good saves and we were lucky to win the game today".
