Crystal Palace - Premier League - 4 November 2018

The Blues duo are now out of favour at Stamford Bridge and the club's head coach explained why their appearances have been limited.

Eden Hazard is in contention to feature for Chelsea, when they play hosts to Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

Crystal Palace have had Chelsea's number recently, winning two of the past three matches, but Sarri's side should be too much on Sunday.

"I have to think I only have to help these players to improve", he said. I told him two months ago what I think.

"Moses is more suitable for playing wing-back than like a winger or a full-back, I think".

"When he left I was congratulating him on his season, on being picked for England and said to him, 'Don't forget, there's always a place for you here".

On Wednesday when Sarri named a largely second team in the Carabao Cup clash with Derby County, Moses was not even in the matchday squad prompting questions on his continued stay with the London side.

Morata gave Chelsea the lead by finishing well after good work from Pedro, but Palace levelled when a one-two with James McArthur caught David Luiz out of position and Andros Townsend beat Kepa Arrizabalaga with a fine drive.

"In Naples, everybody wanted to win Serie A. Only Serie A. So maybe this atmosphere influenced my choices". Everyone wanted to win Serie A, not the other competitions. In the last season, it was only four points.

"So I wasn't at all surprised that he didn't go out on loan anywhere and we were fully aware of the situation".

"I think it more of a factor in Perez's thinking of "if I'm going to spend this amount of money and make Eden Hazard the headline signing next summer, I want a coach who can take full advantage of his abilities". We need to cover immediately the lost ball.

Here are our Chelsea player ratings.

Few could have envisioned a better start under Sarri, whose players have nearly instantly adapted to his methods and expectations.

Both teams were trying to show they were not over-reliant on one player, but neither managed it in the first half. In the future we need to become a very solid team.

An eighth victory from an 11-game unbeaten start saw Sarri, a 59-year-old former banker, equal Frank Clark's Premier League record.
