David Luiz admits he would have left if Antonio Conte had stayed

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez talks up the managerial ability of Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri ahead of the Premier League clash between the two sides.

Newcastle United host Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday, with both sides hoping to secure a valuable three points at St James' Park.

Napoli President, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has taken yet another shot at former manager Maurizio Sarri, this time for having "not won anything".

Luiz also gave an insight into Sarri's philosophy at Stamford Bridge, and says the Italian has already taught the 31-year-old some new tricks. But when he has a team like Napoli that was doing well, he was playing well and he was close, he was close.

Further forward, we are anticipating a first start of the season for Eden Hazard after a couple of cameo roles from the bench.

It could also impose much broader sanctions as a effect of the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal in Britain in March. Britain is preparing to leave the European Union next year, but its sanctions policy is now determined in Brussels.

"I think we are in the beginning".

Chelsea eventually broke the impasse by agreeing to pay around £50 million to sign Italy worldwide Jorginho, but De Laurentiis reportedly insisted that the Blues pledge not to try to sign any more Napoli players and has since publicly criticised Sarri several times. I think, if you arrive to think in this way, then it's very easy.

Benitez said: "Everybody knows that finishing 10th was a miracle because we did really well, that's it".

However, Newcastle will be keen to register their first victory of the season as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Cardiff last week after losing to Tottenham on the opening weekend of the new campaign. I think I am the coach of a very good team, a very great club, so I think it's so important for him to not be sold without the possibility to buy another important player of the same level, so I think Eden will stay with us for all the season. It will probably be a tight game but I'm backing Chelsea to edge it. "And I think that, if the team enjoy the game, they've have a lot of opportunities to win the match".
