Maurizio Sarri has ruled out the possibility of altering the roles of N'Golo Kante and Jorginho, despite criticism of his tactics after Chelsea's defeat at Tottenham.

"I don't want Kante in this position", Sarri told reporters of N'Golo Kante ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash with Greek side PAOK Salonika.

Sarri will be eager for his side to display a response to their first defeat of the campaign at Wembley Stadium last weekend, when Tottenham Hotspur got the better of them 3-1.

Sarri has favoured £57m summer signing and former Napoli player Jorginho as Chelsea's defensive midfield shield so far this season, pushing Kante further forward as a result. "He lost the position, he attacked too much", Sarri added. "At the moment I think it's better for us not to look at the table". Sarri has played some lovely football with Chelsea receiving plenty of plaudits and praised by fans and pundits across England.

While many believe that David Luiz was one of the poorest Chelsea players on the pitch but some pundits have claimed that it was the inability of Jorginho in midfield which helped the Lilywhites take control of the game.

"I talked player by player".

"He has to work and he is very good in the one on one, but he has to move without the ball".

The Blues are already through to the Europa League last 32 and need a point to win Group L with one match to go. We know it's not his main strength, but he's very important for us in recovering the ball.

Olivier Giroud, Kante's teammate for club and country, has no doubt that his fellow World Cup victor will get on Sarri's wavelength sooner rather than later. "It was only a reaction to the difficulties (we were having)".

Minto then drew comparisons of Kante with Ghanian great Michael Essien and explained, "I do think he's got more to his game. I want to see that we have learned our lessons".

Rather than a regular team talk, Sarri made a decision to apply a more personable approach with the players.
