Maurizio Sarri plans to stick with a back four

"Maurizio's Napoli side played some of the most exciting football in Europe, impressing with their attacking approach and dynamism, and his coaching methods significantly improved the players at his disposal".

The Belgian was expected to complete a transfer to the Istanbul club but instead joined Lyon from Manchester City. You have to do what you have to do. Today we were close. I think, if you arrive to think in this way, then it's very easy.

"I have to give credit to my players for the effort they have". It depends on the auto you have, you have to drive that vehicle in the best way. You are not depending on the opponent.

"I tried to play as a five-man defence six years ago, but for me it is impossible". Last season we were the best team in the bottom ten and we hope to do the same again. I want to enjoy, I want to have fun, press the ball.

"I play a little bit more forward", the 27-year-old Kante said.

"We tried to stay in the game until the last minute but this is football - we conceded an own goal and it's an unlucky result for us". Read below to have a look at what they said! I think it's the right way to think for him but I have to think for everybody'. As a manager, you have to make decisions and as a pundit you have to give opinions.

Eden Hazard had blasted Chelsea ahead in the 76th minute from the penalty spot after Swiss defender Fabian Schar had tripped Marcos Alonso, allowing the visitors a breakthrough after they had monopolised possession. All three of the goals in this match came after the 75th minute and Newcastle's late urgency was insufficient to steal a point from the Blues.

Less than four minutes later Chelsea hit the victor.

Yedlin's slight touch on Alonso's strike in the box condemned Newcastle United to their second defeat of the season.

"It's a nice goal but it's a sad day because we lost the game". "Now I'm here and so happy". I will not complain too much about that.

And Benitez explained Lascelles' absence by saying: "All my life I like to talk with players, we decide with what we have to do, everyone knows that".

"The main factor for us is the attitude of the players - their work rate, their mentality".
