Chelsea's Season has been a Success - Sarri

Chelsea fans petrified that N’Golo Kante could miss Manchester United through injury

"We've done incredibly well over the last months to get there".

City extended their winning run to 12 straight Premier League games and now just need to win their final two at home to Leicester and away to Brighton to retain their title and stretch Liverpool's long wait to win the league to at least 30 years. I thought we had a good first half: we scored, we created chances.

But De Gea's mistake led to Alonso hauling the visitors level and the draw keeps fourth-placed Chelsea three points clear of sixth-placed United with just two Premier League matches of the season remaining.

"And then, at the end of August, we started to play every three days".

The Italian also reminded his players about the importance of the game, that could push them closer to achieving their target of finishing inside the top four and securing a return to the Champions League. "I am not sure in two seasons that we will be able to be better".

United might have been erratic and inconsistent for nearly six years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, but De Gea has been the one constant during that turbulent period; while many around him struggled, his displays meant he would walk into any other Premier League side.

The Spain global was criticised for his performance in Manchester United's 2-0 loss to Manchester City in the derby mid-week after he made poor attempts to stop both goals. But I think we are improving.

Hazard has been brilliant dragging an average Chelsea team forward, but he's not the only good player to miss out.

The Dutchman also feels Chelsea need to strengthen their squad, with the London club set to lose their top striker Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

"It's going to be a tough game at the Old Trafford, but we will be ready, we need a win to end up fourth [in the table]".

Many believe Marcos Rojo can count himself a lucky boy after escaping a red card for a foul on Willian in Manchester United's match against Chelsea. "David has been a fantastic keeper at this club, his reaction after Manchester City was good and I was confident in him".

"In my career I made a lot of mistakes on the pitch, so I understand under pressure you can say something you don't think", said Sarri. "So it was frustrating, his situation, I think".
