Paul Merson outlines Chelsea targets under Maurizio Sarri this season

Maurizio Sarri has asked both Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses to change their game otherwise they could be on the brink of ouster from his Chelsea setup.

Drinkwater arrived in the Antonio Conte regime but failed to make his mark and as a result, the English international has been pushed to the fringe by Maurizio Sarri. The midfielder wasn’t even included in the Europa League pool of players and now is fearing to be sold in the winter transfer window.

Moses’ situation is a bit better. The Nigerian international revolutionised the wingback department in the title winning season under Conte but with Sarri opting for a far more different approach Moses’ future is hanging over a thread.

Sarri admits both the players need to change their mindset in a bid to help the team. “I don’t know; they have to improve, but the characteristics are a little bit different.

“The situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two midfielders. I told him two months ago what I think.

“And Moses is more suitable for playing like a wing-back than like a winger or a full-back.

“If you look only at the Premier League, the situation is bad, you’re right.

“But we’ve used 26 players in all competitions this season. I have to look at all the competitions, because 90 minutes is 90 minutes.

“I think the rotation overall is good at the moment. Of course if you look to December, January, you’ll need to change also for the Premier League, because there will be matches every three days.”
