Chelsea's Season has been a Success - Sarri

Monday, 29 Apr, 2019

United halted a run of seven defeats in nine games, but failed to capitalise on Tottenham and Arsenal's defeats as De Gea, so often his side's saviour in recent seasons, was at fault again to hand Chelsea a share of the points at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted it will be "difficult" for Manchester United to finish in the top four after being held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea.

"We played a final, which we lost on penalties".

However, in light of this latest howler, there is a sense that dropping his No. 1 for the final two league games of the season will be too little, too late.

"For us it was impossible to cover completely the gap, but at the end of the third season, we were very close to doing it".

"The last 10 seasons we have been playing a lot of games, the Premier League isn't easy, you need to fight hard".

"I think we'll have two teams wanting to win the game".

"It is a very hard match for both". The race for fourth has transmogrified into the after-you-Claude-excuse-me as the four teams involved have sought new ways to fall over their own feet with the finish line coming into view. Of course, it's only the first step.

"They need a better balance, and in midfield, they also need more creativity, like what Manchester City have in players like Kevin de Bruyne". We need to learn to move the ball at another speed.

Many believe Marcos Rojo can count himself a lucky boy after escaping a red card for a foul on Willian in Manchester United's match against Chelsea.

Chelsea first. Chelsea has to play in the Champions League every year.

"No, I don't have any worries about him", said Solskjaer. I'm really very happy if a player wants to play, wants to react.

"But I think that he was really very nervous for the situation because we were not winning".

"And I think that it was a strong discussion but my opinion has to remain on the pitch".

Antonio Rudiger clashed with Burnley goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer, David Luiz squared up to Clarets midfielder Ashley Westwood, and Sarri was left angry with abuse he received from the visiting coaching staff.

Maurizio Sarri " It's a very important match... But under pressure, it can happen.

"I don't know what to say", Neville told Sky Sports.
