CHELSEA boss Maurizio Sarri must make David Luiz play at a higher tempo if he wants his side to beat Tottenham on Saturday. The Blues travel to sbobet asian
Wembley to take on Spurs in the Premier League at 5.30pm. But Paul Merson has not been impressed with Luiz and thinks he was to blame for the 0-0 draw with Everton. The Brazil international has been reinstated to the defence since Sarri succeeded Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge. And Chelsea have impressed in keeping the pace with Liverpool and sbobet asian
Manchester City at the top of the table. Merson thinks the Blues will not end up competing for the title but will finish in the top four along with Spurs. He told the Daily Star: “He needs to put a shift in for Chelsea against Tottenham because he is sometimes their biggest problem.
“I was at Stamford Bridge for the Everton game and 10 minutes in I said it would finish 0-0. It was too slow – and mostly because of Luiz.
“He takes a touch, plays sbobet asian
it back to the keeper, plays it square, plays it square again. Then he had the audacity to tell the fans to liven up!
“That’s what he should have been doing for me. It set the tone and if they do that again today they won’t beat Spurs.
“When Chelsea move the ball quickly they are electric and few teams can live with them. When they slow it down they are rubbish.
“But I actually think if they can get a draw in this game it would be a good result. I don’t think there’s much between the teams.
