Sarri enjoying atmosphere at the Bridge

Maurizio Sarri has suggested that Chelsea have no reason to be envious of other London clubs moving to new stadiums.

Tottenham made a winning start at their new home this week, while West Ham have moved to the London Stadium and Arsenal to the Emirates in recent years.

Chelsea are keen to upgrade Stamford Bridge but Blues head coach Sarri is more than happy with the current ground.

The Italian was asked at a press conference on Friday if Chelsea need a new stadium in light of other London clubs moving to impressive new grounds.

Sarri replied: “I don’t know. Probably yes, but I like Stamford Bridge very much because the atmosphere is very good. The people are very close to the pitch and I like it very much.”

Chelsea face West Ham in a derby at the Bridge on Monday night and Sarri warned that the Hammers are not to be underestimated despite their inconsistent season.

He said: “I think they are really a very dangerous team because this season they were not able to have consistency but they have high quality.

“So in a single match they can be very dangerous. It’s a difficult match. It’s a derby.”
