Adjust Comment Print

Chelsea's win could prove telling in the final reckoning, but in the short term their fightback at least eased the pressure on their Italian coach.Sarri gambled with his team selection, once again leaving out Callum Hudson-Odoi as the England worldwide joined Hazard and N'Golo Kante on the bench, but was spared by the impact of another substitute, Loftus-Cheek, in added time.

It's the best league in the world, but probably the worst officials at the minute.

The veteran coach was furious at what he perceived as poor officiating after Chelsea scored an 84th minute equaliser despite two of their players, including goalscorer Cesar Azpilicueta, were offside.

Chelsea's unlikely late fightback followed sustained chants against Sarri from large groups of irate travelling Blues supporters that included "F-- Sarriball", "We want Sarri out" and "You don't know what you're doing". A finish outside the top four could end up resulting in the sacking of Sarri.

Asked if Higuain has a future at Chelsea beyond this season, Sarri said: "I don't know".

But I think he is really very strong, his character is very strong. Of course I can understand. I am getting used to this and for me, it's not a big problem. I am just so proud of the whole club today, the fans were brilliant and I thought the team was.

The issue took centre stage at the press conference for foreign and worldwide media at the company's Shenzhen headquarters. It has launched a more aggressive strategy in recent months to counter what it sees as an American "smear" campaign.

Sarri later opted to bring on Olivier Giroud and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who eventually scored the victor, but fans were not happy at his tactics throughout. So I don't want him to stop improving. We need Gonzalo at the top.

And, speaking on Match of the Day 2 after the game, Jenas said they could understand the away fans anger.

The performance at the Cardiff City Stadium did very little to vindicate Sarri's bold selections, and the stroke of luck required to haul Chelsea from behind and the Italian's head clear of the chop was emblematic of the Blues' struggles at a crossroads under his troubled reign. We've been kicked so many times. I might be too old by the time we get VAR, but that's why we need it.

"[Here] we started very badly but, in the end, we won".

"We were lucky because we gained three points and Hazard played 30 or 35 minutes and Kante zero minutes". "If you're not passionate at my age when you see such an injustice when you've seen the lads battle and fight like they have... against a team we should have beaten", he said.

"It's not easy, because you have to choose the right moment and you don't know if it's the right moment or not".
