Chelsea ‘need another step’ to challenge Liverpool and City

Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea are not yet ready to take on Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race.

The Blues’ perfect start to the season has led to suggestions they can challenge for the title after placing fifth last term, well adrift of champions City.

Ahead of Saturday’s clash with Cardiff, when asked which teams are in title contention, Sarri said: “At the moment I can answer City or Liverpool, at the moment.

“We need another step, I think, to be the same level.

“I think so. I hope not. It’s very difficult. The gap was 30 points at the beginning of the season.”

Cesc Fabregas is fit again following a knee injury, but Sarri suggested it may be more beneficial for the playmaker to train this weekend, rather than be a substitute.

Emerson Palmieri, Davide Zappacosta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have had knocks which could see them miss out.
