Maurizio Sarri names the team he wants Chelsea to avoid in the Europa League

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has named which team he would like Chelsea to avoid in the Europa League. The Italian’s side could bounce back to win in last night’s match against Malmo following 6-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester City. And now Sarri already has an eye on the nest round. "I would avoid playing in Naples, if possible, because it would be too strong an emotional response for me to focus on the game," said Sarri. "If Napoli-Chelsea means we are both in the Final, however, then I’d be happy for both." Speaking about their performance against Malmo Sarri said: "The team shut own completely towards the end and unfortunately at the moment is unable to keep concentration and intensity going for the entire 90 minutes. This problem happened to more or less every Coach in their first year in England, so I hope the situation can be resolved positively. We are one of only two English sides fighting on all fronts, us and Manchester City, so evidently we are doing something right."
