Maurizio Sarri invites John Terry to join Chelsea coaching staff

Memphis Depay made just over 50 appearances for Manchester United despite a big-money move from PSV Eindhoven

Mark Lawrenson is tipping Chelsea FC to claim a 3-0 win over Cardiff City in their Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Italian boss now boasts an unbeaten record in his first four league games with the Blues, but is wary of dropping points after a host of players took part in global duty having experienced a poor return with Napoli during his time with the Serie A outfit.

Sarri spent the September global break in England, dividing his time between walking his dog Ciro around the large garden of his new house a short drive from Chelsea's training ground in Surrey - "Similar to my name", he joked - and studying video of his team's upcoming opponents.

Abraham spent the 2016/17 season on loan at Bristol City before getting a regular taste of Premier League action with Swansea City last season on a temporary basis.

On the win which extended Chelsea's winning run to five matches under their new manager Maurizio Sarri, he added: 'The game was very tough.

"But it's a good pressure, and I think if you don't feel this pressure you stop being the type of player to play for Chelsea".

The classy performance continued the France striker's upturn in form after he broke a 10-match worldwide drought with the victor in a 2-1 defeat of Netherlands last weekend.

"I'd expect the Welsh side to be very competitive, but Chelsea will have too much for them".

"Fortunately in the last season [when Napoli nearly won Serie A in 2017/18], the average was the same: 2.4 in the season, 2.45 after the break".

'I don't know today the situation because I have to speak with the doctor.

Asked whether his side can challenge for the title, Sarri said champions Manchester City and Liverpool were favourites and that Chelsea needed to improve defensively.

"I love to play football so it's great to be on the pitch".

Sarri, as quoted by West London Sport, was led to believe that Abraham had no intentions of departing Stamford Bridge in the summer initially. If he wants to help us I am happy [for him to do so]. Because, as I said before, I want to give space to the young players.
