Sarri Has Already Ruled Out The Premier League Returning To Stamford Bridge

Sarri Has Already Ruled Out The Premier League Returning To Stamford Bridge

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has ruled out the Blues winning the Premier League this season, claiming it is impossible despite their unbeaten start.

Chelsea haven't lost a game under the Italian since their 2-0 defeat against Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley.

The Blues have played 18 games since then, winning 14 of those fixtures and only trail Pep Guardiola's men by four points.

However, the former Napoli man has already ruled out finishing about City: "No. For me they are stronger than us.

"We have to work very hard just to try to recover the gap, but at the moment the gap is still there.

"We have to do it. We can recover, but I don't think in the first season we will be able to recover 30 points.

"In the Premier League, there is a team above the others. This team is Manchester City.

"Then there is a very good team - Liverpool. For sure Liverpool will be in the first four positions.

"Then there are four or five teams who will have to fight for the Champions League positions. Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United."

Sarri's men are currently 20/1 to be crowned Premier League champions come the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Chelsea travel to Wembley tomorrow as they go head-to-head with Spurs hoping to get their 100 percent record intact.

8/5 says they do so, while Mauricio Pochettino's side are 9/5 to pick up the three points.

Sarri praised his Spurs counterpart ahead of the game, saying: "He has done a very good job, they play very good football. They are very dangerous in the offensive phase, in the short counter-attacks.

"They are a technical team and in the match, they run a lot. From the physical point of view, they are a very strong team.

"They are competitive. They will fight for a Champions League position, for sure. It is very difficult match."
