Chelsea can improve next season despite transfer ban - Sarri

Maurizio Sarri insists Roman Abramovich retains hands-on role at Chelsea

Michael Owen is tipping Chelsea FC to beat West Ham United in a high-scoring game at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Maurizio Sarri has insisted he wants Gonzalo Higuain to stay at Chelsea despite the striker's struggle to make an impact in the Premier League.

Chelsea's appeal against the two-window transfer ban handed down by Federation Internationale de Football Association in February is set to be heard by the governing body's Appeal Committee on April 11, while the club also reserve the right to go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) if the ruling is upheld.

"We have a lot of very good young players who are improving". They are improving. In this moment of the season, they are fresh. I am not anxious about the market.

"Victory is looking essential to keep their top four hopes alive and with only one defeat on home soil in the Premier League this term they have made Stamford Bridge quite a fortress".

Ahead of their home clash with West Ham, he said: "It is not hard to prepare for next season because I'm really confident in my players".

However, Chelsea could also secure Champions League qualification by winning the Europa League and they face Slavia Prague in the last eight.

Barcelona ace Suarez has 129 goals in just 159 La Liga appearances and previously graced the Premier League with Liverpool.

However, Sarri was pretty clear that he will keep the 31-year-old for another year, as his impressive run of six goals in five starts for club and country sees him making an impact at the end of the season.

"We play every three days so we need both".

Olivier Giroud, Chelsea's back-up striker, has scored more goals than Higuain since his arrival. "I know the club have an option [to extend his contract] for another season, so I think he will remain".

But when asked if he wants to hold on to Giroud, Sarri said: "Yes, of course". I think that he has to improve, physically, mentally.
