Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri won't change N'Golo Kante position after Tottenham shocker

Sarri has now revealed that he only wants Jorginho or Cesc Fabregas to play at the base of his midfield and has urged Kante to work on his positioning.

Having played as a defensive midfielder during his three seasons in the Premier League, Kante is now being asked by Sarri to play in a more advanced position following Jorginho's arrival at Stamford Bridge.

However, Pochettino's targeted man-marking of Jorginho using multiple players to do so severely affected Chelsea's ball transition. I wanted to understand this.

Sarri then organised individual meetings in which he questioned his players about the performance.

Spurs dominated from the first whistle to the last and could've easily won by more than two goals but for a series of excellent saves from Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Belgian superstar has had to contend with several slight problems in recent months and is now suffering with an ankle complaint.

Sarri has acknowledged that his team delivered a "bad performance", and the Italian has said that he has taken measures to try to determine what went wrong against the club's rivals.

N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic both started during the disappointing defeat to Tottenham at the weekend so I expect them to be rested with Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in-line for recalls in midfield.

'I have to think about everything because Saturday we played very badly, a match without determination, but we lost one match after 110 days, so the team did well, generally. But I don't know. On Monday they were all together, but the situation was similar. For me, I don't think this balance ever looks right.

Sarri was speaking ahead of Chelsea's Europa League game against PAOK Thessaloniki on Thursday.

The only other doubt for the Blues is versatile wide player Victor Moses who is struggling with a back issue.

Sarri said: "I am anxious because 25 days ago he had a back injury".

"So I think that he has lost a lot of training. It's normal at the moment he isn't at the top of his physical condition".

Maurizio Sarri conducted one-on-one meetings with his Chelsea players as he sought an explanation for a perceived lack of "determination" in their loss to Spurs.
