There's creases that Sarri will be hoping to iron out, but when you have players like Hazard at your disposal, there is no roof on how much your team can achieve.

"The situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two midfielders", Sarri said.

"I think here I was lucky because my players were able to win without a high level of tactical level", the Italian coach added.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is aiming to get one over Crystal Palace - but has warned Victor Moses and Danny Drinkwater on the eve of the Premier League clash that they must improve in order to salvage their Stamford Bridge careers.

Maurizio Sarri's side now sit third in the table - two points adrift of joint leaders Manchester City and Liverpool - following last weekend's win at Burnley so Chelsea will be desperate to maintain the pressure with another victory in west London on Sunday.

"They have to improve, but the characteristics are a little bit different", he told reporters.

While keeping silent on Moses, Sarri said about Loftus-Cheek: "Ruben in October played four matches out of five".

Moses was a regular under previous manager Antonio Conte, but of the Nigerian's six appearances this season only two have come in the Premier League and he has started just once.

While Moses is struggling for a place in The Blues' mainframe, 22-year-old Loftus-Cheek has found his form and had a recent hat-trick to show in the Europa League, such that Sarri is now eager to keep the youngster.

"I have to look also to the minutes in the national teams".

However, Sarri did admit there could be more opportunities for squad rotation as the Premier League enters its busy Christmas period.

"That's how we left it, and I think that's what he hoped to hear from me, and expected".

"So we'll need to change there too, of course".
