Sarri dissatisfied with sluggish Chelsea's slim Europa League win

Share

This season Jurgen Klopp's side's priority is the Premier League, where they've started brilliantly, but they still have designs on trying to better their surprising run from last season.

Defender Andy Robertson is confident Liverpool can recover from their Champions League loss to Red Star Belgrade but admits the squad must rediscover their "spark" to get their season back on track. We didn't manage the last 15 minutes well.

Morata has scored four times in his last four Premier League appearances and Sarri thinks it best to let him recuperate rather than risk running him into the ground.

"The atmosphere, noise-wise, was not a problem for us, but after the second goal they could smell it". They're probably the only ones this season that we haven't, for whatever reason. And so, for his confidence, I think it's very important.

With that in mind, it could be argued that it would have been good to have played Hazard anyway, but he will feature for other reasons rather than that, as the Italian confirmed when he faced the press.

"We had the first big chance with Daniel [Sturridge], a very big one". Robertson insists Klopp's side will be confident of victory despite their poor European away form. It's tight and it'll go right to the wire. I think we didn't play very well, I didn't like the first half because we moved the ball only horizontally and slowly, so it was hard to be risky.

"We just didn't start, and when you don't start in the Champions League, you get punished".

"We believe we can win every game, that's always been the case with us".

"Napoli came here and found it tough as well, so it's a tough place to come, but we expected that".

Unai Emery's Gunners were the better side for long periods at the Emirates against a team who have already had three different managers this term, but had to settle for a point.
