Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri: I've decided our captain

For the moment, Cesar Azpilicueta holds the armband, but the manager says that could soon change.

"The last time I spoke with him he told me that he wants to play for another season", said Sarri on Friday.

"But before telling you my decision I would like to speak to the players and the club". In this moment it's not possible so for the moment the captain is Azpilicueta.

As Sarri revealed this afternoon, it is something he has previously discussed with the defender. Here, he's a point of reference.

Chelsea new boss Maurizio Sarri insists Liverpool and Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are the two top sides in the running for the Premier League silverware at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

Maurizio Sarri has said he has been warning his Chelsea players all week about the danger of dropping points after global breaks as they prepare to resume their Premier League campaign at home to Cardiff City on Saturday. "Chelsea is his home, of course", Sarri said at a press conference, according to FootballItalia.

'They are very, very young and they are, for sure, the future of the club'.

The Blues have looked revitalised since Sarri replaced Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge and are yet to drop a point in the Premier League. I think so, but I hope not.

A whole host of Chelsea stars have returned to Cobham this week after featuring for their countries over the global break.

"I have my dog here with a very big garden, so the dog is very happy".

Sarri spent the September worldwide break in England, dividing his time between walking his dog Ciro around the large garden of his new house a short drive from Chelsea's training ground in Surrey - "Similar to my name", he joked - and studying video of his team's upcoming opponents.

'However, if Man City slip even a little, I think Liverpool will punish them'.
