Sarri more interested in signing a winger than a striker like Higuain

Chelsea are considering a deal which would see Tiemoue Bakayoko involved in a swap to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie in the summer. Now we have to improve in the last 20 metres. "I think we need something different for characteristics", said Sarri.

Meanwhile, Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl will be delighted with his team following their first clean sheet in nine Premier League games after a superb defensive display which leaves them just two points from safety.

"If they finish in there which I believe, then I think it will be a successful season for them". I have to try to improve my players, my team, my offensive phase, or better my offensive phase in the last 20 metres.

With Olivier Giroud sidelined after suffering an ankle injury in Sunday's win at Crystal Palace, Sarri opted to recall misfiring striker Alvaro Morata.

Wizards’ John Wall needs surgery on left heel
The Washington Post's Candace Buckner was the first to report the possible need for surgery and Hoop District has confirmed it. Doctors determined the procedure is necessary for Wall to remedy an issue that has bothered him for more than a year.

But the Italian, who has deployed Eden Hazard as a centre-forward in some recent matches, added that he has made his feelings known to the club's hierarchy. We have to try to solve the problem.

It was no surprise Morata wasted a golden opportunity to open the scoring when he met Cesar Azpilicueta's long pass with a tame header straight at 22-year-old Angus Gunn - the son of ex-Norwich goalkeeper Bryan Gunn.

Sarri's assistant coach, Gianfranco Zola, has confirmed that Chelsea are keen on Bournemouth's Callum Wilson, though he admitted they were not the only side watching the new England global.

Sarri's men have scored 12 goals in their last 11 Premier League matches having managed to find the back of the net 26 times in their opening games of the season.
