Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri questioned his capacity to motivate a Chelsea team he claimed “stopped to play” in a 4-0 thrashing at Bournemouth but maintained he does not feel under pressure.

The former Napoli head coach kept his players in the away dressing room at the Vitality Stadium for 45 minutes after a sapping defeat on England’s south coast, banishing his coaching staff so he could address them alone.

Sarri called the Chelsea squad’s motivation into question after the 2-0 loss at Arsenal 11 days ago and, although cup wins over Tottenham and Sheffield Wednesday followed, he found himself once again picking through the bones of an unacceptable display.

“It’s very difficult to have an idea of the performance. We played very well in the first half,” he said, after Joshua King scored the first of two goals in the 47th minute, with the excellent David Brooks and substitute Charlie Daniels also getting in on the act for Bournemouth.

“In the second half we conceded the goal after two minutes and stopped to play. In the offensive phase, we played not as a team, but as individual players and did not defend. It’s hard to understand why.

“We had 43 minutes still to play, so we could solve the problem. But not with that kind of reaction. So it’s very difficult for me to understand why.

“I wanted to try to understand after the match. I spoke with the players immediately after the match, but it’s very difficult also for them to say why. So I have to try again tomorrow [Thursday] because I need to understand why, because I need to solve this problem.”

4 – Chelsea have lost a Premier League game by a four-goal margin for just the second time in the competition’s history (also 1-5 v Liverpool 1996

The issue of motivation was again on the agenda, with Sarri suggesting Chelsea would not collapse to such an extent against one of the Premier League’s leading lights.

“Maybe we are not in the top four of the Premier League at the moment, but we are competitive,” he said after his team slipped to fifth, below Arsenal on goals scored.

“We cannot lose 4-0 against Bournemouth. I want to respect Bournemouth, and you know I like very much the coach Eddie [Howe], but it’s impossible to lose 4-0 here.”

The 60-year-old was also prepared to accept his own culpability but does not feel his position is under threat.

“Maybe it’s my fault, maybe I’m not able to motivate them,” he added. “But the team is very strong, it is also able to win without the coach.

“I feel frustrated, not under pressure. I don’t see… I didn’t see the signal of my work. So I am frustrated.”

Sarri must hope that frustration does not soon extend to his famously trigger-happy employers.

EPL: Premier League introduces new rules on penalty kick, substitution, handball, cards for managers, others

EPL: Premier League introduces new rules on penalty kick, substitution, handball, cards for managers, others Premier League Rebrands DesignStudio

The International Football Association Board, IFAB, has approved new rules and changes ahead of the 2019/2020 season.

The 2018/19 Premier League campaign finished last Sunday with Manchester City claiming the title.

The new rules affect Freekicks, substitution, handball, dropball, and cards for managers.

It is already established that video assistant referee, VAR, will be used in the league next season.

These alterations will have a huge impact on the Premier League sides.

The IFAB has clarified the situation in regards to handball decisions ahead of next season

Handballs:

The new rule state that goals will be disallowed if the ball accidentally strikes a player’s hand in the build-up.

A free-kick will also be awarded outside of the penalty box if a player has accidentally created an advantage by handling the ball.

The IFAB has also had its say on drop balls and is aiming to get rid of ‘manufactured’ restarts.

IFAB explained that, “The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a ‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly or an aggressive confrontation.

“Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.

“To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away.”

Substitution:

Another rule which has been introduced for next season sees some major alterations to substitutions.

Now players will have to leave the pitch at the nearest point rather than walk slowly across the field late in games and waste time.

Penalty kicks

This has certainly been overdue with goalkeepers taking advantage on penalty situations for a while now.

But from next season they will have to have one foot on the line.

Not only must keepers be touching the line, they will not be allowed to touch the goalposts before the ball is kicked.

Cards for coaches.

Referees will now be able to show them a yellow card or a red card in the same way they do with players on the pitch.

EPL: Chelsea take final decision Hazard’s successor Hazard 027302323

Chelsea have finally decided to give star player, Eden Hazard’s number 10 shirt to forward, Callum Hudson-Odoi, when the Belgian finally leaves Stamford Bridge this summer’s transfer window.

Hazard looks likely to leave for Spain, after he confirmed in an interview after the final Premier League game of the season, that he, “has made his decision,” regarding his future.

Real Madrid are yet to agree a fee with the Blues for the 28-year-old as they haggle over a price between €100million and €130m.

However, Daily Mail is now reporting that Chelsea board wants Hudson-Odoi to wear Hazard’s No. 10 shirt in a bid to persuade the England youngster to sign a new contract extension.

The report claimed that Chelsea hierarchy will hold talks with the player’s representatives before the end of the month.

Hudson-Odoi, who currently has less than a year in his current deal at Chelsea, has also drawn interests from Bayern Munich, PSG and Juventus in recent months.
