Maurizio Sarri wants to retain Olivier Giroud at Chelsea next season

Maurizio Sarri wants to retain Olivier Giroud at Chelsea next season

Despite a troubled maiden season for manager Sarri no side has conceded fewer home goals than his in the Premier League this season.

Asked if he was concerned by a report in the Times this week revealing that Abramovich did not pay for an executive box at Stamford Bridge this year for the first time in a decade, Sarri said: "I don't think so".

I think so.' Giroud, who helped France win the World Cup past year, has started only seven Premier League games this season.

Chelsea boss Sarri insisted he wants to keep the on-loan Juventus striker at Stamford Bridge next term, despite the Blues remaining subject to a Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban.

"He has some problems now, but he is involved with the club, with the team", said Sarri.

"Do I get the impression he wants to stay?"

Chelsea head into the tie off the back of consecutive victories over Brighton and Cardiff City respectively, while West Ham travel to Stamford Bridge in poor away form. "I know the club have an option [to extend his contract] for another season, so I think he will remain".

There are 14,000 US troops in Afghanistan, many of whom train, advise and assist Afghan forces in their fight against the Taliban. The Taliban effectively control half the country and launch daily attacks on the army and police.

Sarri's rotation policy is likely to hand further chances to several players who have struggled to find form in recent weeks - most notably Gonzalo Higuain, who has scored just three goals in 11 appearances since arriving on a lucrative loan deal from Juventus in January.

Higuain still has time to become a fan favourite, if he can fire Chelsea to a top four finish and also Europa League glory. The Hammers lie 11th in the Premier League and looked like a team who were on the beach during their awful display at home to the Toffees.

Chelsea's appeal against the two-window transfer ban handed down by Federation Internationale de Football Association in February is set to be heard by the governing body's Appeal Committee on April 11, while the club also reserve the right to go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) if the ruling is upheld. "I think he has time for improvement".

"At their best they can compete with the best teams, they can beat anyone".

"We play every three days so we need both".

Callum Hudson-Odoi therefore, sang the praise of the star player as he noted that he has not seen such performance in a live game, adding that watching and learning from such quality is a boost to his career.
