Chelsea don't need to sign striker in transfer window - Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea

Chelsea

Chelsea is now fourth in the table, three points ahead of Arsenal and six up on Manchester United for the last Champions League spot.

This arrangement has deterred Chelsea from attempting to bring the player to the Premier League, with the need to negotiate with both clubs a stumbling block, as report Goal.

"It's not easy, and I think that we are lucky because we have [Ethan] Ampadu, we have [Andreas] Christensen, we have [Hudson-Odoi], so we are lucky".

"We have to try to solve the problem of the last 15, 20 metres".

Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are amongst the clubs who are interested in signing AC Milan midfield star Franck Kessie. I have to try to improve my players in the offensive phase. I have to think of the training.

New signing Christian Pulisic won't join the club until next season, loaned back to Borussia Dortmund for the remainder of the current campaign.

Inter to play two home games behind closed doors after Koulibaly abuse
According to UEFA's protocol, the match should have been suspended then but instead the game was allowed to continue. Moreover, it seems that Napoli's coaching staff had already informed the referee several times of racist chants.

Goalkeeper Angus Gunn, making his Premier League debut, twice denied Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata had a strike ruled out for offside while also missing other opportunities as Sarri finally appeared to lose patience with the misfiring striker at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard hinted several times that he preferred to play wide rather than upfront during Sarri's experiment with the Belgian as a "false nine".

While successive away wins at Watford and Palace made it a happy Christmas for Chelsea, their first home game of the new year was a lot like their last in 2018.

Substitutes Cesc Fabregas and Ruben Loftus-Cheek then combined to tee up Morata but Gunn blocked his low shot.

The hosts wanted a late penalty as Marcos Alonso went to ground under a challenge from Shane Long, but referee Jonathan Moss was not interested in Chelsea's appeals.
