The Blues two players are currently out of favour at Stamford Bridge and the club’s head coach explained why their appearances have been limited
The Chelsea boss admitted he is unsure whether Drinkwater and Moses can adapt enough to fit into his tactical blueprint at Stamford Bridge.
Drinkwater has only featured in the Community Shield for Chelsea this term, while Moses has made six appearances but only two in the Premier League under new manager Sarri.
Sarri explained why the duo are not featuring much in the early stages of his tenure at the club.
“I don’t know; they have to improve, but the characteristics are a little bit different.
“The situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two midfielders.
“I told him two months ago what I think.
“And Moses is more suitable for playing like a wing-back than like a winger or a full-back.”
Sarri insists Chelsea will look to rotate their league line-ups come the Christmas fixture glut though, and maintains he is handing players opportunities to impress in cup competitions.
