Maurizio Sarri Says Victor Moses And Danny Drinkwater Are Free To Leave Stamford Bridge

Maurizio Sarri has revealed that Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses are both free to leave Stamford Bridge – as neither player fits his formation.

Drinkwater is yet to make a competitive appearance this season, while Moses – a key figure under previous manager Antonio Conte – has played just twice as a substitute in the Premier League.

And that scenario is unlikely to change, with the Italian boss admitting the pair don’t suit the way he sets up his team.

Sarri said: “The situation is that Drinkwater, for me, is suitable for a midfield with two midfielders.

“I told him two months ago what I think.

“Moses is more suitable to play like a wing-back, rather than like a winger or a full-back.”

As for their chances of breaking back into the first team, they are extremely slim.

Sarri responded: “I don’t know. They have to improve but their characteristics are a bit different.”

The Blues will look to maintain their unbeaten league record when they host Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge today with kick-off at 4pm.

Sarri’s men have won seven and drawn three of their top-flight games so far, with fellow title challengers Liverpool and champions Manchester City also still undefeated.
