Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri struggling to give up smoking

"If he wants to help us, I'm very, very happy". He has won everything with the club so it is up to him.

"For sure he will be a point of reference for me, for everybody here".

"It's up to him", Sarri told a news conference ahead of Saturday's home game against Cardiff City. "[But] in this first period, for me, it was very important not to change, especially the defensive line".

Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has said that the London outfit are not title contenders this season as they are still missing something.

"We need another step to be at the same level".

The Italian added: "I think tomorrow will be a very hard game because, mentally, the match after the break is always very hard".

The activity was part of the first stage of the exercise, which runs until Monday next week, the ministry said in a statement . Putin praised Russia's increasingly close ties with China as he met Xi at the economic forum in Vladivostok on Tuesday.

"We need to improve".

Cesc Fabregas is fit again following a knee injury, but Sarri suggested it may be more beneficial for the playmaker to train this weekend, rather than be a substitute.

Fabregas is likely to only be fit for a place on the bench, though, and could replace Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who picked up an injury on global duty with England.

But Sarri doesn't believe Chelsea, as well as Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal, are good enough to compete with the other two clubs.

The 59-year-old's preferred playing style, which sees his team play short, snappy passes, certainly suits the Brazilian. "I am trying", Sarri said.

The Italian's father has been urging him to give up cigarettes for 20 years but it's proving hard. "He is the only one who put me in doubt". He has won everything with the club.' Asked about the possibility of Terry joining Chelsea as a player, Sarri said: 'It would be on the coaching staff, I think, because, as I've said before, we want to give space to the young players.
