Chelsea owner Abramovich talks to Zola more than me - Sarri

"But at the beginning of the season, Odoi had a very great potential but wasn't ready to play in the Premier League".

When asked if he wanted Higuain to stay next season, Sarri replied, "Yes of course, but it depends on the club, it depends on Juventus".

Sarri continues to have only fleeting contact with Roman Abramovich, whose commitment to the club remains unswerving despite confirmation the owner has stopped paying up front for his £1m-a-year corporate box at Stamford Bridge.

Like Pellegrini, Sarri may also make changes to his starting XI with this fixture being the first of three in a frantic six days for his side.

Insisting he has sole control of Stamford Bridge team matters, the under-fire Blues boss rubbished claims he was forced to give the England youngster a full Premier League debut last week.

The Argentine striker, 31, was duly signed on loan from Juventus in January with a view to a permanent move this summer.

"It's not easy for a striker to play immediately well".

Maurizio Sarri says he is not anxious about Chelsea's looming transfer embargo, insisting he has confidence in his squad as he targets a top-four finish in the Premier League.

However, Sarri again acknowledged that Higuain "needs to improve" and is not finding the transition to English football easy.

Chelsea were hit with the two-window transfer ban by Federation Internationale de Football Association last month, over breaching rules concerning overseas players under the age of 18.

'We have played 51 matches, and in the last part of the season I want 20 players completely involved in our targets.

While the Blues will need to win if they wish to keep their top-four hopes alive and three points on Monday would mean Chelsea might just go above Arsenal depending how the Gunners tackle Everton.

"We have a lot of young players, very good, they are improving". They are improving. In this moment of the season, they are fresh.

Callum Hudson-Odoi therefore, sang the praise of the star player as he noted that he has not seen such performance in a live game, adding that watching and learning from such quality is a boost to his career.
