Michael Owen: What I really think about Chelsea FC under Maurizio Sarri

Willian has started three of Chelsea's four Premier League games under new manager Maurizio Sarri and provided an assist during the 3-0 victory over Huddersfield.

Chelsea defender David Luiz has claimed that Maurizio Sarri's attitude towards life is the reason why the Italian is enjoying his time on and off the pitch.

Sarri replaced Antonio Conte in the summer after a long drawn out saga over whether he would remain at Stamford Bridge or not. "These five years have been very good for me and I am proud to be a Chelsea player".

Sarri could also turn to Fabregas' experience to help the likes of Kovacic, Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek as the season progresses with the Spaniard having racked up over 300 Premier League appearances in his career.

Speaking about Sarri, Luiz said, "First of all he's a great person, great as a human", the Brazil worldwide said of Sarri in an interview with Chelsea magazine. "The feeling is always that we will win and this is a great feeling, because I've been playing football for many, many years and if you feel that way every day, it means you're in the right place".

"So, I believe in this philosophy, and then after that he is a great coach".

"Every week he tries to make the best plan possible for the exact game and this is great because he is working in the best way for the team, for the collective", he added.

"Last time I spoke to him he told me he wants to play for another season", Sarri said.

Willian has been a vital player under Sarri so far, he is expected to be in the squad when they host Cardiff on Saturday in the Premier League.

"So it's going to be hard for them to win the Premier League".

With Antonio Conte still at Chelsea for the start of pre-season, Willian's future at the club appeared to be in the balance after the World Cup.
