Maurizio Sarri urges Ruben Loftus-Cheek to improve despite hat-trick

Ruben Loftus Cheek Chelsea 2018-19

"For a manager who has been in the game for a long time, it would be daft for me not to take in what he is telling me", Loftus-Cheek said.

After the speculation surrounding his future at Stamford Bridge since the summer transfer window closed, Loftus-Cheek needed to make a statement in order to reaffirm his status as a member of Maurizio Sarri's squad.

Alyaksandr Hleb was a force to be reckoned with during his time at Arsenal and Barcelona but at the age of 37 he struggled to keep up with Chelsea's fast, free-flowing brand of football.

'So first thing's first, I need to keep up the good habits - eating well, sleeping well and training well and if I keep doing that then good things will come'.

"As a player-manager relationship it works - we both have respect for each other".

"I will keep trying to do that and it's all I can do right now. I want to keep being ambitious, keep improving and see how far I can go".

Chelsea travel to Burnley on Sunday afternoon, with the Blues returning to Premier League action.

Not since Clive Walker in 1982 has a Chelsea academy product scored three goals in a game for the club. The first time I stepped on the pitch for Chelsea at Stanford Bridge was in the Champions League and that was a special night.

Kerryn Phelps kicks Liberals into minority government
WHEN the Liberal Party is done deciding who to blame for its apparent defeat in Wentworth, it will need to refocus on governing. On Saturday evening, it looked as though Phelps had won with a mammoth 20 percent swing against the Liberal party.

"I think it [his last hat-trick] was in the Under-13s". I remember scoring a hat-trick against them when I was young. A European night under the lights, it is hard to describe the feeling.

Sarri, who has challenged Loftus-Cheek to improve his tactical awareness, called the 22-year-old over at nearly every break in play to give individual instructions, and after the match said it would be "difficult" to give the academy graduate the number of first-team minutes he wants.

The England worldwide completed his brace from a corner-kick as Loftus-Cheek sneaked in to steal the shot and it was 2-0 to Chelsea.

"Congratulations to him", Loftus-Cheek said of Hudson-Odoi's appearance.

The 27-year-old has not impressed new manager Maurizio Sarri after being a regular under Antonio Conte, and could be another player on the move next year.

"All the players in the team will keep pushing him, Ampadu as well".

But Sarri claims Loftus-Cheek is still some way off securing a permanent spot in his side.
