The Blues are now in fourth place in the table but just three points ahead of Arsenal and six points ahead of Manchester United in the top flight table.

"The club knows my opinion. I think we need something different for characteristics", said Sarri.

Chelsea announced the £57 million signing of Christian Pulisic on Wednesday, though the U.S. worldwide will not arrive from Borussia Dortmund until the summer, whilst the club have also been credited with an interest in AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuaín.

"I have to try to improve my players, my team, my offensive base.

I can only say my opinion to the club".

With Olivier Giroud out injured, Alvaro Morata is the only healthy striker on Chelsea's roster. Their next Premier League match sees them host Newcastle on Saturday, January 12.

Morata has played so badly this season that Sarri had used Belgian winger Eden Hazard in the central forward's role recently rather than turn to the Spaniard, who managed only seven goals this term and none in the league since November 4.

3 dead, 79 missing in Russian Federation apartment block explosion
Officials said the blast ripped through the building at around 0600am local time when many residents were asleep. The ministry didn't say how many people died or the number of the residents that may be trapped in debris.

Reports suggest that the West London club have cooled their interest in the former Real Madrid player.

Bakayoko is now on loan to Milan and the Italian club have an option to sign him for €35m at the end of the campaign.

For the moment, Sarri continues to use Willian, but the Brazilian's bid to prove his worth was ruined when he was forced off with an injury late in the first half.

Speaking after the game, Sarri admitted that his team need to address their attacking deficiencies, citing their lack of cutting edge in the final third.

It was exactly the same story against Southampton.

Substitutes Cesc Fabregas and Ruben Loftus-Cheek then combined to tee up Morata but Gunn blocked his low shot.
