Maurizio Sarri relaxes two unpopular rules at Chelsea that Antonio Conte introduced

The newspaper explains the strict diet regime was "a factor" in the former Italy CT leaving the club earlier in the summer, while the hotel regulation was "unwelcome".

True to his word, the Italian introduced the 22-year-old midfielder in for the unimpressive Ross Barkley in the last 20 minutes of the match against Huddersfield yet fared no better than his fellow England midfielder despite Chelsea cruising to a 3-0 victory.

It has become clear that several Chelsea players were not the biggest fans of Antonio Conte during his time in charge at Stamford Bridge.

But his desire to play on the front foot has already endeared him to Willian after two seasons under Conte's rigorous tactical approach that prioritised making Chelsea hard to beat.

New Blues manager Maurizio Sarri could give Mateo Kovacic his Premier League debut against Arsenal who joined on the transfer deadline day from Real Madrid on a season-long loan. "I will only leave if Chelsea want me to go".

The comments were made after DeVos visited Howard University in May 2017 and was booed by the student body. Manigault Newman later told Trump about the incident and that's when he called DeVos ditzy.

The report claims that Sarri has recognised the large squad he has at his disposal, and while he is looking to trim his list of players, he wants to make the atmosphere at the club as relaxed as possible as to not ostracise those left on the periphery.

"That's why he (Sarri) talked about "fun" football".

"When you have someone right in the middle of that midfield who understands how the manager plays and dictates that to everyone, I think it is really helpful and he has so much quality as well. So that is what I am going to try to do again this season". "Now we have a different style, that's why we can create problems for Arsenal (on Saturday)".

The mood around the club certainly seems to be more optimistic than it was at times past year already and a player of Willian's quality committing his immediate future to the team can only be a good thing as Sarri tries to implement his unique style of play.
