Chelsea boss Sarri wants to retain Giroud at Chelsea next season

'Of course it will be hard, but I have to consider in this moment of the season we need to change, ' Sarri said at his pre-match press conference.

Giroud, an £18m signing from Arsenal last season, has struggled for game-time in the Premier League under the Italian, despite proving prolific in the Europa League.

Maurizio Sarri has confirmed he wants Chelsea to keep Gonzalo Higuain past the end of this season, despite dropping the striker for the victory over Brighton.

Chelsea are now at fifth in the Premier League table.

Sarri feels that the Argentinian attacker has to improve both physically and mentally, but drew comparisons to La Liga goal machine Luis Suarez. The Blues are fighting for a spot in the top 4 and I see that fight continuing as Chelsea should get all 3 points from this fixture.

Higuain has scored just three goals in 11 games for Chelsea, with the club needing to pay 36million euros (£31m) to bring him in permanently from Juventus.

'This is how I want Chelsea to play' - Hazard shares Sarri's philosophy
Sarri admits Hazard's future is out of his hands. "I want to finish in the top four and do well in the Europa League ". As per recent reports going on in the media, Manchester United have been linked with West Ham midfielder Declan Rice .

"It's not easy for a striker to play immediately well".

"He is the owner, and so he is able to influence the technical staff, the club, the players, everything I think".

No one can match his nine goals in that competition, though his start in midweek against Brighton - in which he scored his second top flight goal of the campaign - was his first in the Premier League this calendar year. Chelsea, who were hit with a one-year transfer ban in February, lodged an appeal to FIFA's Appeal Committee and the case will be heard on April 11. "I know the club have an option [to extend his contract] for another season, so I think he will remain". So I think that, in this moment, they are really very important for us.

While fans have been calling for Hudson-Odoi and Loftus-Cheek to feature more, Sarri rejected suggestions he had been urged by club bosses to hand both men more playing time.

"Because, in the season, they were not able to have consistency, but they are a team with high quality".
