Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has casted major doubt over the futures of two Premier League title winners at Stamford Bridge.

Sarri has plenty of quality within his squad, and with his reluctance to rotate his side for games of any meaning, there is inevitably going to be players left out in the cold.

Two who have been shunned this season are Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses. The former was not even included in our Europa League squad, the competition in which Sarri likes to shuffle his pack.

It doesn’t look as though things are going to get any easier for the pair, either. Sarri has confirmed that neither are in his tactical plans, but may get sporadic chances later down the line.

He’s quoted by ESPN saying:

“I think the situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two other midfielders. I told him two months ago what I think.

“Moses is more suitable for playing wing-back than like a winger or a full-back, I think. I don’t know [if they have a future at Chelsea]. They have to improve but their characteristics are a little bit different.”

“…If you look at December and January, you need to change also in the Premier League because we will play every three days in the Premier League. So we need to change in the Premier League.”

Whether you think either of them are Chelsea standard is a matter of opinion, but both of these players have Premier League winners’ medals in their cabinets, there would be no shortage of interest within England’s top tier if we did decide to cash-in.
