Video: Superb 14-pass move shows Maurizio Sarri’s immediate influence at Chelsea

Posted by

Chelsea’s passing play already looks to have improved immensely under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

The Italian tactician has been in the job less than a month, not having a huge amount of time to truly stamp his authority down on a squad of players that struggled so much under Antonio Conte last season.

Sarri is famed, however, for his teams’ fine possession-based football at Napoli, and this video below shows how well he’s getting his methods across at Chelsea.

This 14-pass sequence leads to Chelsea winning a penalty against Huddersfield Town yesterday, which Jorginho duly slotted away to make it 2-0 on their way to a comfortable 3-0 win.

If this is the kind of football we can expect from Sarri’s Chelsea, they’re going to be great to watch this season.

Which new manager is the better appointment?
