EPL: Sarri names best team in Europe

"If we lose we are going to be 13 points from the top and that's a lot, but we have to think, prepare for the game well and not pay attention to the table at the moment".

Stamford Bridge is the next obstacle and Chelsea, with Eden Hazard flourishing again under Maurizio Sarri, are a team capable of beating anybody on their day. But against Manchester City, there is no way, Maurizio Sarri will be taking that chance.

Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has named the best team in Europe ahead of the Blues clash with City at the weekend. N'Golo Kante, Alvaro Morata and Antonio Rudiger have the most bookings this season for the Blues, with three apiece. "It will be a great game for sure, and everyone will be very motivated to play in it".

Jorginho is central to everything and acts as the pivot, holding court in a position between the centre-backs and attacking central midfielders - something rival teams have figured out and have addressed by sticking a man-marker on him, or having designated individuals mark him in a zonal system (if he's near the striker, the striker follows, if he's nearer the 10, the 10 follows).

A fan tweeted: "I have no words for Marcos Alonso!" This will be essential for Sarri since his team can opt to play the long balls whenever needed.

The pair of Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota bridged Chelsea backline within four minutes to leave the Stamford Bridge dwellers ten points adrift of league leaders Man City. Influential midfielder Kevin De Bruyne continues to miss out due to a knee injury and isn't thought to be ready to return.

The match at Stamford Bridge kicks off at 5:30pm GMT (12:30pm ET) on Saturday and it will be shown on BT Sport in the UK.

Manchester City haven't won consecutive top-flight visits against Chelsea since January 1955.

For Liverpool to have any realistic hope of overhauling City to win the title, they really must win that game because they simply can not rely on the rest of the Premier League to rein Guardiola's team in.

Chelsea loss at the Molineux have seen the west London drop to the fourth spot in the Premier League log after suffering their second loss in three matches.
