Maurizio Sarri hits back at Napoli chairman's criticism - 'He is missing me'

N’Golo Kante consoles an unhappy Arsenal fan after Chelsea defeat

"I am the coach of a very good team. Nobody won in Italy except Juventus in the last seven years".

Jorginho worked alongside Sarri to great effect at Napoli and has been instrumental so far this season while the Chelsea boss has already talked up signing Kovacic on a permanent deal. Not only did he take them past the 90 point mark and turn Aurelio De Laurentiis' side into genuine title challengers - they manner in which they did it was also impressie.

The striker, who joined Chelsea from Real Madrid last summer and has scored 16 goals in 51 appearances for the Blues to date, was on the scoresheet in Saturday's 3-2 win over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

Sarri revealed he expects Loftus-Cheek to stay until January after speaking to him this week, and added that he is in no hurry to let go of Abraham either.

We will need more of a cutting edge than we had against Cardiff though, and I am hoping Rafa Benitez gives Salomon Rondon his first start, replacing Joselu, who was ineffective last time out. "It's up to him if he wants to remain here".

Loftus-Cheek impressed while on loan to Crystal Palace last season and the player is believed to be keen on holding down a regular spot in the first team at Stamford Bridge.

The move meant that Abraham will be the club's third choice attacker and will likely see action in the Europa League and Carabao Cup. It's not so easy in this period because we play only once a week.

"There was no real rush for me to move to another team", he told Sky Sports. "But I think like Eden it's possible for him to play for 60-65 minutes". I am not able.

"I am the coach of a very good team, a very great club, and so I think with such an important player I can not sell without the possibility to buy another player at the same level".
