Maurizio Sarri has marked West Ham’s star Midfielder Declan Rice as a major threat for the Blues when the two sides meet on Monday night.
The 20-year-old has been in sparkling form which has seen him make his international debut for England since switching his allegiances from Ireland.
Speaking to the press before West Ham clash, Sarri Said:
“Rice is a very good player. Very good defensively because he is able to recover the ball.
“In our first match against West Ham, he was really a very big problem for us.
“He is improving offensively. I saw their last few matches and I saw a very good midfielder.”
