Premier League January transfer spending fell for first time since 2012

Maurizio Sarri: Maybe I Am Not Able To Motivate Players

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri tore into his players for the second successive English Premier League game, repeating the claim that he can not motivate them after a 4-0 drubbing at Bournemouth left the Londoners outside the top four.

After the 4-0 hammering at the hands of Bournemouth, Chelsea are preparing themselves for the worst and are lining up Maurizio Sarri replacements should the experiment with the Italian tactician go further south.

And the fans have lambasted the coach for his perceived cluelessness when he removed new signing Gonzalo Higuain and replaced him with Olivier Giroud.

I've not heard of a manager asking his coaching staff to leave the dressing room so he could have it out with his players, but every manager has his own approach, and he must have seen something that angered him.

With the clear intention to remedy the Blues scoring woes in the Premier League to enable them to maintain their top-four aspirations, it's safe to say Higuain hasn't hit the gorund running. I needed to understand, it was so different in the first and second half. Suddenly after the first goal we were not able to play. He hasn't won a thing, yet he feels it necessary to public criticise his players' mentalities and motivation.

Premier League clubs were reluctant to plunge into the inflated January marketplace this season - in stark contrast to previous year, when they splashed out a record £430 million on transfer fees.

With those mitigating circumstances, Steve Mills and Scott Perry were never going to get 100 cents on the dollar for Porzingis. At the time of their trade of Porzingis, the Knicks had several offers for the 23-year-old big man, league sources told ESPN .

The Welshman was the star of the show in the 4-0 demolition of Chelsea in midweek but the 21-year-old picked up an issue and Eddie Howe will have to make do without him for the next month. "It was a very tough result after two wins in the cup".

"When your back is against the wall, you look to your team to find something, and he was forced to do that again for the second game in a row".

Asked if he would considering moving Kante back into a deeper position in place of Jorginho, Sarri said he would only consider doing so for 20 minutes if Chelsea were protecting a lead.

"It's a very hard period to bring players in", said Everton's director of football Marcel Brands when he correctly predicted a lack of transfer activity at the club's annual general meeting early in the month.

"If Jose Mourinho was still at Man Utd I'd say there could be something because he was forever trying to get better performances".

Sarri has attracted criticism for deploying Eden Hazard as a striker and N'Golo Kante - so effective as a defensive midfielder - in a more attacking role.
