Sarri is yet to choose a permanent captain for the season ahead but Cesar Azpilicueta has been awarded the armband in Chelsea's three games so far this season.

Thierry Hazard, the father of Chelsea forward Eden, reveals that his son may have ended up a Real Madrid player this season had Zinedine Zidane not left the Bernabeu.

Sterling enjoyed the best campaign of his career last season, scoring 23 goals in 46 matches as City won the Premier League title with a record 100 points. As a team we know we can improve and we will work on that.

Finally, against Newcastle United on Sunday, having been kicked from pillar to post trying to find a way through the Magpies' dogged defence, Hazard scored Chelsea's opening goal from the penalty spot. I think that Mateo will be a very important player for us during the season'. "Before the internationals, we'll try to win all of our games and then come back after and go on". But if you saw the whole game, I wouldn't say that it's luck'.

Despite the managerial change, Hazard was still pursued throughout the summer.

Asked what is different to playing under Antonio Conte, Rudiger replied: "Stop comparing".

"Not because I don't want to, because I don't know". We do a lot of possession and try to press high. "Some footballers hold the ball too much, Hazard most of all". To make those players defend is not their strength, especially Eden.

As for Drinkwater, the former Leicester midfielder also wants to remain at Stamford Bridge but faces a tough ask to force his way into a midfield now occupied by Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.

New boss Sarri has previously said it takes defenders longer to adapt to his unique style of play.
