Maurizio Sarri Has One-On-One Meetings Following Loss To Spurs

"I think I just twisted my ankle, but it's like every game, it's the same". "In the manager's philosophy, how he wants us to play, Jorginho is the holding midfielder or Cesc - that's a very important part of our game".

"Why Maurizio Sarri is not playing N'Golo Kante in front of his back four baffles me".

Kante's adopted a different position from last season, playing a more attacking role following the summer signing of Jorginho.

"I have a meeting of five or 10 minutes with the individuals, individual meetings with the players", he added.

There's calls for Kante to revert to his previous defensive role though Sarri has insinuated that the World Cup victor isn't technical enough.

In a damning verdict on his team's performance, he accused his players of lacking "determination" and "motivation" during the match at Wembley and said Spurs "destroyed" his team in the space of 15 minutes.

"I think we will be able to recover him for the game on Sunday".

"It's very hard for them, I think, to tell me why [it happened]", Sarri said.

"He lost the position, he attacked too much the other box. But I'd seen the same problems also in the matches before".

The Argentine deployed his Tottenham side in a narrow 4-4-2 diamond formation, which saw Dele Alli stifle Blues playmaker Jorginho and allowed Son Heung-min to wreck havoc in behind David Luiz. He wasn't the only player who failed to deliver, but because we rely on his influence so heavily, we suffered with him being off the boil.

Attack: Eden Hazard trained with the rest of the squad today but the Belgian global won't be risked after picking up a minor ankle injury - although Sarri is hopeful his star man will be available to face Fulham this weekend.

Hazard was likely to be rested anyway on Thursday, but given his recent recovery from a back problem, the Blues will not risk him.

Hazard is out with an ankle injury sustained against Spurs, but should be back to face Fulham. "It's normal at the moment he isn't at the top of his physical condition". The target is very clear in my mind: "the target in the short period is to win something, and in the long period it's to become the best team in Europe".
