Football-30 December 17:10 GMT
Chelsea boss has urged the English duo of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley to learn more off the ball movement following N’Golo Kante’s off the run that opened up Crystal Palace to score the winner.
Speaking on N’Golo Kante progress in the right side of midfield Maurizio Sarri said:
“I think he has to think to defend first of all. He is improving, especially in his movement without the ball. Today the movement was really very good and done with the right timing.
“It’s very important for us when we have to play against opponents very low, where the strikers and wingers find it hard to find space. It’s about the movement of the midfielders.
“We have to work on Loftus and Barkley on this. Loftus, especially, is a very great player with the ball, but he can improve a lot in his movement without the ball.”
