Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri incensed by comments from Burnley bench

Luiz and Kral

Chelsea star David Luiz met his doppelganger against Slavia Prague last night

That gives Sarri's men an extremely impressive 'P19, W18, D1, L0' portfolio at the Bridge against clubs we can class as being no better than a bottom half Premier League outfit.

Details of the words exchanged between the two benches are expected to be included in the referee's report given that East was in position to hear everything, and after the game Zola suggested that Chelsea could ask the Football Association to take action against Burnley for what was said.

"They were trying to time waste from the first minute of the first half, and then it was anti-football so it's hard to play against".

Tensions escalated as Burnley stubbornly repelled waves of Chelsea pressure and acted to slow the game down in the closing minutes, and at the final whistle a mass of angry bodies from both clubs converged at the entrance to the Stamford Bridge tunnel.

N'Golo Kante has warned Chelsea to cut out their sloppy second halfs as the Blues look to boost their bid to finish in the Premier League's top four against Burnley on Monday.

On Tuesday, Spurs - who play three of their final four league games at home - host Brighton, while Arsenal - who have three away games left - travel to Wolves on Wednesday.

"We'll go into the semi-final with confidence and we hope to qualify for the final". It's not easy for us because we only play four matches, but we have to try.

Burnley's manager Sean Dyche will likely keep the winning team consistent and has no need to make changes to the side, with no fresh injuries to the squad.

Tom Reed, R-New York, a moderate who frequently votes with Democrats, said Mueller's conclusions "should be celebrated". With Republicans controlling the Senate, Democrats would have little chance of removing Trump through impeachment.

Sarri insists qualifying for UEFA's elite club tournament is not the be all and end all for his side, though, and he believes going all the way in continental competition is perhaps not as tough as it is made out, with luck playing a big part.

'You have to enjoy the moment, and we certainly enjoyed the moment.

"The last four or five matches will be hard for every team involved in fighting for the top four, not only for us".

Their European conquest appears to be the most likely route back to the Champions League; even then they nervously edged out Prague 5-3 on aggregate.

Giroud has played 24 games in the Premier League, although only seven of those have been starts.

So don't panic if you see Alonso in the XI tonight, we still are backing Sarri to stick with Emerson against Man United on Sunday.

"We can make the season handsome by winning the Europa League", the 28-year-old said.

Chelsea are always really strong at home and I expect another good performance.
