Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea a 'step behind' Liverpool, says Blues boss

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho broke a Premier League record with his performance against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal didn't have to travel for its Europa League match and had mostly fielded a reserve team in its 4-2 win over Ukrainian side Vorskla Poltava on Thursday.

Three points from the London Stadium as West Ham held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw to end the Blues' 100 percent start to the season.

"I knew West Ham were a very good team", he said.

Klopp is in his fourth season at Liverpool, while Sarri only succeeded Antonio Conte in mid-July.

"In this moment, maybe it is not a great problem, because we have played only six matches". We need to move the ball quicker and we need more movement without the ball.

While the world's most expensive goalkeeper deserved credit for a fine save, Arnautovic, who has scored three and assisted another of West Ham's five goals this season, would likely have converted one, or both, of Antonio's chances.

Needing a two-goal win to depose Liverpool at the top of the table, Chelsea struggled to make clear chances despite having the majority of possession and stayed third behind the Merseysiders and champions Manchester City. We have started to work altogether 40 days ago and less time with the worldwide teams.

She claimed Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, tried to remove her clothing and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. The White House and other Kavanaugh supporters had dismissed the allegation when it was initially conveyed in a private letter .

Sarri is not convinced Chelsea's Europa League trip to PAOK had anything to do with Sunday's sluggish performance, though he does not see why the Premier League can not do them a favour with match scheduling.

"They will provide a real test of how good we are", the striker told the London Evening Standard.

Asked whether he would be making wholesale changes for the League Cup match in the midweek, he said: "I don't know".

"I want to speak with the doctor", Sarri added.

"So, in this moment of the season, Pedro is a very important player".

To be fair, the Hammers should have won the match, given Andriy Yarmolenko's huge missed opportunity late in the second half. "I don't think there is an easy game against Salah, Firmino and Mane".

'Sometimes we rushed our game and have not been patient, or maybe we did not put enough pace in our game.
