"That's why I say going away is not a big problem but now you call a manager of any country and ask him to leave out one or two players and he says, "I am under pressure as well" because now it's Nations League".
"If you want to see fresher (players), give them a summer break", he said. "I don't think they'll be challenging for the title". We have a lot of young talent, and even though I wasn't part of the World Cup squad, I can see everyone is developing really well now and if we can keep progressing over the years, there will be more success down the line. "But after eight games I still think it's very early to think about Chelsea challenging [Man City or Liverpool]".
"But I've kept a positive mind, worked really hard, fitness wise I'm feeling as good as I've ever felt before and I'm looking forward to the games ahead and the rest of the season".
"The players told me it is somewhat hard to go there, as people come up to you pretty directly".
"They were very impressive, kept the ball well, controlled the game from a possession point of view, and just looked a lot more unsafe".
Jimmy Butler has heated practice with Timberwolves
Coaches and players were largely speechless at Butler's tour de force throughout the workout, league sources said. At times, Butler has been working out away from the team at the facility since his trade request three weeks ago.
Despite joining the Reds in the last transfer window, Shaqiri still lives in Manchester and claims he only goes into Liverpool city centre for matches and then he stays at the team hotel.
They are preparing for a behind-closed-doors UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia on Friday.
"I don't think they will win it by 19 points again like last season but I'd expect Man City to win it by a handful of points".
Sarri was brought in to try and help guide the west London side back into the top four after the Blues finished fifth and won the FA Cup last term under Conte.
Liverpool have been in fabulous form and find themselves level on points (20) with Manchester City and Chelsea at the top of the Premier League, with just goal difference separating them. And we hope that they come back healthy and play these easy competitions, the Premier League, the Champions League and all this.
