Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has hinted that it might take the Blues two months to get the drift of his footballing philosophy popularly known as "Sarri Ball", a system of football similar to the Spanish "tiki-taka".

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has warned the Premier League to beware of new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri after seeing him guide Napoli to within touching distance of Italian giants Juventus. "I've spoken with him twice this week after I spoke to the club, I think Loftus will remain with us, we can speak again about his situation but only in December".

"When I arrived in Naples I had the feeling that the team was nearly ready to play my football".

Chelsea coach Sarri also disclosed that he would not be returning to a five-man defence with wing backs.

Sarri inherited a side at Stamford Bridge which under-achieved last season under Antonio Conte as they attempted to defend the Premier League title at the same time as Newcastle were battling to re-establish themselves in the top flight in the wake of promotion. "It's easier for offensive players so in this moment he needs to have much more training with us".

"It is wonderful to play football, of course last season was not the best for me inside the pitch, but also I learned a lot outside the pitch as a person, as a man", he told Sky Sports ahead of Chelsea's Sunday trip to Newcastle United, where they will look to make it three top-flight wins out of three this season.

"I don't know", he said.

"They can say he was not winning - yes - but the team maybe was not capable of winning".

However, Newcastle will be keen to register their first victory of the season as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Cardiff last week after losing to Tottenham on the opening weekend of the new campaign. It's great to understand football - it never stops - since I started playing football I always learn from every coach, it's great. "Then, if I enjoy the game, maybe the supporters enjoy the game".
