Asked if he would take a pay cut for a more favourable fixture list, Sarri said: "Yes of course, because the salary is not so important for me".

The hosts came into the match knowing three points would move them ahead of Arsenal and Tottenham in the table - albeit having played an extra game - and they were by far the better team in the opening 20 minutes. I'd like very much that Kovacic will stay with us.

"In this moment of the season, we need to change", the Chelsea head coach said.

"I'm happy here", Higuain told the Chelsea website.

Sarri has questioned the Premier League's "very strange" decision to schedule Chelsea's West Ham clash for Monday night, just three days before the Blues' Europa League trip to Slavia Prague.

The midfielder has made 42 appearances across all competitions including 28 in the Premier League, 19 of which have been starts.

"You know very well that, in that position, we have some problems because we have only Jorginho".

"In the last match, Jorginho touched 161 balls".

The world's governing body issued written reasons to the Premier League club explaining the initial reasoning for their ban and justifying why Chelsea's request for it to be put back for a year was rejected. We're coming towards the end so it's about finishing as strongly as possible. The best thing we can do is qualify for the Champions League and hopefully win the Europa League too. Of course, he is not a defensive midfielder but, as you know, in that position I prefer a very technical player.

Chelsea's appeal against a two-window transfer ban will be heard by Federation Internationale de Football Association on Thursday and if that can not be overturned the Stamford Bridge club may not be able to make Higuain's move permanent. That's my intention. I came here and I wanted to stay.
