Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, has said that Chelsea will need as much as a year to be on the same level with Liverpool, uniquesports.com.ng reports.
Sarri said this after his side drew 0-0 with West Ham on Sunday.

Chelsea will face Liverpool on Wednesday night in a Carabao Cup tie.

The Italian said the Carabao Cup match against the Reds has the potential to be “spectacular”, and revealed he could make as many as 11 changes for the encounter.

“We have to face a team very very good, a team that has worked with the same coach four or five years, I don’t know exactly,” said Sarri.

“They are a step forward than us at the moment. We have started to work altogether 40 days ago and less time with the international teams.

“For us it is a bit early. We have to work and improve and then maybe in a year it will be the same level as Liverpool.

“They have had one more day of rest. I want to see the picture of the situation tomorrow morning in the training session. I don’t know, maybe I will change 11, maybe five.”

Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, has provided update on his team ahead of their Europa League clash with MOL Vidi on Thursday.

Sarri said Victor Moses, Cahill, Kovacic will not be in the squad due to injury.

He also said that goalkeeper Kepa, Rudigar, Azpilicueta, Kante and Hazard will be rested.

Sarri said this in a prematch press conference on Wednesday evening ahead of the game.

He said, “The last match was really very difficult, because they defended very well, very low in density. It was very difficult for us to score.

“Maybe tomorrow will be a very different match because they are fighting for qualification.

“I think they need to win tomorrow. So maybe the match will be really very different.

“I don’t know the starting XI for tomorrow. I can tell you that I decided that the players who played for three matches in six days in the last week have to rest in this match and so I am talking about Kepa, Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Kante and Hazard.

“Then we have three injuries. Kovacic, Cahill and Moses. All the other players are here, of course.”

AC Milan are keen to sign Fabregas in January and the Blues have looked at Barca’s disgruntled Suarez.

Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri does not want the 31-year-old to go, but the Spaniard wants more football than he is getting at the moment.

Sarri has told the club’s board that he does not want Fabregas to go until a direct replacement has been sorted out as he is his only true cover for Jorginho.

However, Fabregas has made only four Premier League appearances this season, starting only in the recent defeat away to Wolves.

Suarez wants to leave Barcelona after making only one substitute appearance in La Liga this season, and would cost around £15million.

The Blues value Fabregas at around £11m.
