Chelsea winger Pedro has signed a one-year contract extension with the club, it has been announced today.

Where do you think Chelsea will finish this season?

He would have provided competition for Fernandinho at the base of City's midfield, but Sarri feels the quality Guardiola possesses throughout his squad meant Chelsea's need was greater. I spoke about positions and characteristics but no names.

"My will is staying at the club, unless they want to sell me", Willian said after the loss to Man City.

"It is very good for me, I am really happy here in the club, with my teammates, the supporters and the club in general", the Spanish global told Chelsea's official website.

Sarri, who has not won a trophy in his career, said: "The match for us is very hard for one reason: they have worked all together for two years".

"Sometimes [at other clubs] the work has been very long, sometimes not".

"Obviously we have a new manager now, he's got a new philosophy and we're looking good in training".

Hazard is due back to Chelsea training tomorrow after having an extended holiday due to his run to the World Cup semi-final with Belgium this summer.

"Is it unusual? I think so".

Speculation has been rife this summer that Courtois is angling for a return to the Spanish capital - where his children live - with Real Madrid heavily linked with a 35-million-euro move for the Belgium worldwide.
