Chelsea coach, Maurizio Sarri has explained why he did not feature midfielder, Rubeu Loftus-Cheek in his sides’s 3-2 win over Arsenal in the Premier League.
Goals from Pedro, Morata and Alonso ensured victory for the Blues against the Gunners at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening as Mkhitaryan and Iwobi scored for the visitors.
According to Metro UK, Sarri said he did not play Loftus-Cheek because he preferred to have two wingers and one midfielder on the bench.
“It depends on the position on the pitch,” said Sarri, when asked why Loftus-Cheek was not included.
“I prefer to have on the bench two wingers, and only one midfielder. So it depends on this. Not any other situation.
“I needed on the bench one goalkeeper, one full-back, one centre-back, maybe two midfielders and only one winger, but yesterday I preferred vice versa, two wingers and one midfielder.”
The result against the Unai Emery’s side means the Blues now currently top the EPL table with six points from two games.
