"For us, Willian's really a very important player", said Sarri.

Even though Chelsea breezed past Newcastle 2-1 on Saturday bossMaurizio Sarri says he needs replacements in midfield if they are to keep up their push for the last automatic Champions League spot in the Premier League.

With Chelsea fans beginning to lose patience at their team's latest spluttering home display, Willian lifted the mood in the nick of time with his superb second-half curler. "I need an option for Jorginho".

Willian has since starred for the Blues against Newcastle United where he scored a sublime curling goal which proved to be the victor and speaking after the game, Sarri reiterated the importance of the winger.

I have no idea [how soon a replacement will arrive].The club is anxious, I don't know. The club knows very well my opinion.

Sarri added: "You know very well that Willian is a very important player for us, as I said yesterday in the news conference".

Major League Baseball bending rules for Kyler Murray, Oakland Athletics to reach deal
According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the team will meet with Murray today to try and convince him to choose baseball. But with his football success, rumors have persisted that he will declare for the NFL draft and leave baseball behind.

Newcastle, now with just one win in nine Premier League outings, enjoyed their fair share of possession in the remainder of the match, but Rondon's wayward header at the back post three minutes from time was the best they could offer.

"If we work and play with the same passion, intensity and work rate, we will definitely have chances to get points against a lot of teams. We stopped playing and then we had problems".

But after a half-time rocket from Sarri, his team improved and Eden Hazard laid the ball off to Willian, who curled a lovely shot into the far corner. We scored after 10 minutes by attacking spaces behind the lines with Pedro. We need Hudson-Odoi. We need Willian of course. I think that at the moment, in the defensive phase, we are doing very well.

Sarri said: "I was happy with the result, I was happy with the performance at Tottenham". I think that we need to improve our mentality in total.

But it took only nine minutes for the Blues to go in front as Newcastle's five-man defence was carved open easily.
