Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea Need 'Something Different' At Striker

Hasenhuttl challenges Redmond to become Southampton’s matchwinner

The American global is Chelsea's third-most expensive signing in history and will be expected to help the Blues deliver on the biggest of stages.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has stated that Gonzalo Higuain is to remain on loan at AC Milan for the second half of the season, despite growing interest from Chelsea.

Chelsea started struggling striker Alvaro Morata up front in hopes of the Spain global rediscovering his goal-scoring form but debutant Saints' goalkeeper Angus Gunn was the star in an otherwise lacklustre Premier League encounter.

The impending arrival of Pulisic highlights Chelsea desire for more attacking options - which was further underlined by their disappointing goalless draw in midweek.

Meanwhile, Kante has been one of Chelsea's goal-scorers in a barren run which has seen Chelsea score only 11 goals in their last 10 games. "It was a little bit hard". I think we played a very good match for 80 metres of the pitch, then we were in trouble in the last 20 metres, ' said Sarri.

Butina pleaded guilty to acting under the direction of a Russian official to establish relationships with influential Americans. He now lives in Novi, Michigan, and is director of global security for BorgWarner, where he has worked since early 2017.

"We created chances that we missed".

Southampton started the second half with more objective and, minutes in, midfielder Stuart Armstrong tested Kepa Arrizabalaga in the Chelsea goal for the first time, the Spanish keeper having to dive to push the ball clear.

Chelsea are now preparing to play in the competition they won seven months ago, as the FA Cup winners welcome Nottingham Forest to Stamford Bridge in the third round of the competition.

"We know he's a good player".

The Blues are the reigning FA Cup holders and Kante is looking forward to starting their defence of the competition and trying to get back to winning ways at home.
