Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri Offers John Terry A Chance To Come 'Home'

"I've always said I am really happy, I feel very happy playing for Arsenal", he told the London Evening Standard.

"For sure he would be a point of reference for me, for everybody I think".

Getting the 18-year-old game time at Chelsea is not as easy for Sarri, but he remains a player the Blues boss is keen to utilise at some stage of the season.

"I think he has the capacity to make history for Chelsea again".

Chelsea faced Cardiff City four years ago in the Premier League, where The Blues secured victories in both the legs with the scorelines of 4-1 and 2-1 respectively.

" Here is John Terry's home, he would be very important for everyone here".

'He doesn't look out of place and what I like about him is that he is so confident.


Aron Gunnarsson and Josh Murphy seem set from a return from injury for City, though Nathaniel Mendez-Laing remains out with a longer term injury concern.

The Spaniard will be rested following his global retirement, and appears one of the most likely City players to start in Kevin De Bruyne's absence. "Mentally after the (international) break it is hard", said the 59-year-old Italian. At the moment he is able to be on the bench.

"Maybe the best thing to do is put matches of the national team at the end of the season".

"So it's going to be hard for them to win the Premier League. It will be a very hard game for everybody who plays Cardiff".

Chelsea have recorded the most successful passes so far this season, ahead of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City and top-of-the table Liverpool.

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho says he was surprised by Chelsea's decision to loan his former Monaco teammate Tiemoue Bakayoko to AC Milan this summer. "We need another step to be at the same level", said the Blues head coach. My feeling is that now we are not a very solid team in the defensive phase.

"We play against a very physical team, so I think if we want to gain points we need a very good performance tomorrow".
