However, while Sarri has stopped short of saying anything about the next line of action for Moses, the gaffer spoke at length about one of the winger's rivals, Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
"He's a player I'd like to have had in my team for many years", he told RMC Sport. The Blues may have lost two of the last three league meetings between the sides, but they are a different proposition under Sarri and it would take a fearless punter to oppose them here.
8 - Sarri's starting XI encountered problems in the first half but his management of Morata is clearly paying off, and his substitutes - it's always nice to be able to bring on the Premier League's best player this season, isn't it? - turned a hard game in exactly the way he wanted.
"I have to look also to the minutes in the national teams".
"We were lucky because immediately, in the first minute, I think he was able to change our match". "I'll be surprised if you come back here, but you know you're always welcome".
He has also overseen unbeaten starts in the Europa League and EFL Cup, using 26 players in total.More news: Erdogan: Turkey 'Ready' to Invade Kurdish Northern Syria

Eden Hazard was named on the substitute's bench, having missed Chelsea's last three matches through injury and he was clearly missed as Palace impressed in the opening exchanges.
"The situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two midfielders", Sarri said.
The Spaniard's goals came either side of a a well-taken Townsend strike which temporarily gave Palace belief, before Pedro made the points safe. We need to cover immediately the lost ball. The title is not something we have to think about now but obviously that has to be the target for us.
'Today I think a lot about the hat-trick it's not good, I'm improving, I want to work and to help my team. I can say to the club my opinion about what I think I need but my job is to try to improve my players.
FW Willian, 6 - This was his 11th start in a row and while he generally looks more risky cutting in from the left flank, there was a noticeable lack of pop and imagination in his play against Palace's massed defensive ranks.
However, additional information reveals that his former coach at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho, who is now in charge at Manchester United, is on the hunt for Moses.
