I am a dreamer, I want to play my football - Sarri bullish over Chelsea future Maurizio Sarri insists he will keep trying to implement his style at Chelsea and believes long-term stability can bring success.

You need to change the mentality in 25 minds so it’ s very difficult, as we saw with Liverpool and Manchester City, but after the solution of the ‘You cannot change the mentality in one day, you can change it day by day, maybe only one per cent a week, it’ s a long story.’ Tags: Maurizio Sarri .

Maurizio Sarri believes changing the mentality of his Chelsea squad will help remove the inconsistencies that have plagued the Blues in recent months.

Sarri went 18 games unbeaten in all competitions after taking control at Stamford Bridge in July, yet since late November their form in the Premier League has dipped.

Defeats to Wolves, Leicester City and Bournemouth - as well as a home stalemate with struggling Southampton - have them looking over their shoulder in fourth place, with Chelsea sitting 11 points behind leaders Liverpool having played a game more.

Sarri hits back as he vows not to change his style of play

Sarri hits back as he vows not to change his style of play Maurizio Sarri has hit back at his critics who have urged him to change his style of play at Chelsea. As reported by the Independent, the Chelsea head coach insists that ‘Sarri-ball’ is not going anywhere for the time being. Despite being told to find a plan B, Sarri insists Chelsea must perfect plan A first. “Why? First of all, I want to do Plan A very well. I don’t want to change some things that, at the moment, don’t work very well. First of all I want to see my football played very well.

Maurizio Sarri has described himself as a “dreamer” and insists he will not bend his principles in a bid to revive Chelsea ’ s stuttering league form. English football is in the hands of these teams. They had a plan and were really patient. So we need to change mentality and go on.

Maurizio Sarri analyses Chelsea ’ s defeat at Arsenal, highlighting what was wrong with his team and what has to be changed … Choosing to speak in Italian in his post-match media conference so as to make sure he sent an accurate message to his players, Sarri was clear what the main problem was

The 4-0 reverse at Bournemouth on Wednesday saw Sarri lock his players in the away dressing room for 45 minutes after the final whistle, the Italian left irate by his side's display.

He got the response he wanted as Huddersfield Town were brushed aside at home on Saturday, new signing Gonzalo Higuain netting twice in a 5-0 win.

And while the victory pleased the former Napoli boss, it only served to highlight their erratic form of late.

"Not in the past [have I managed a team that's so inconsistent]," he told reporters.

"But my target is to improve the mentality, because if we improve the mentality, I think it will be easier to arrive into every match with the right level of application and determination.

"It is not easy, of course, and it is a long way but we need to try to improve in mentality. In every training, in every match, but we need to improve."

Chelsea remain behind Sarri – David Luiz

Chelsea ’ s early-season form owed much to the goals of Eden Hazard with Sarri claiming the Belgian was capable of scoring 40 this campaign. The Italian needs to find answers quickly to arrest Chelsea ’ s slump with the finance and prestige of Champions League football paramount to his and

He needs to fuck off else we'll lose our best players.

Another aspect Sarri is keen to develop on is the movement off the ball, which he believes will allow Jorginho - and therefore Chelsea - to flourish.

He added: "Jorginho needs movement without the ball from the other players, because he is used to playing one-touch and it is very difficult to play one-touch without the movement of the other players.

"So if the team, like in the first 20-25 minutes [against Huddersfield], played very well with movements without the ball, then for Jorginho it is easier, I think. In the first 25 minutes we played our football because we moved the ball very fast and very well.

"There was good movement without the ball. We were really very dangerous. We didn't play with our backs to the opposing goal like in the last match, with five players doing it in the last match. We attacked the spaces and so I think that we played our football."

I will not change Chelsea's style, insists Sarri.
Chelsea made "a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents" in their 6-0 defeat at Manchester City, conceded Maurizio Sarri.
