Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has admitted he will have to start rotating players as Chelsea start a run of 15 matches in the next 60 days.

Sarri has enjoyed a brilliant start to his Chelsea career and could equal former Nottingham Forest boss Frank Clark’s record of remaining unbeaten in his first 11 matches as a Premier League manager if Chelsea avoid defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Sarri’s team selection in the Premier League has been very consistent so far with Sarri using just 19 different players in the Premier League so far and 14 individual starters.

Kepa, Marcos Alonso, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley, Pedro, Eden Hazard, Willian, Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are the only players to have started a Premier League game for Chelsea this season.

This could be about to change with Chelsea having to play 15 matches in the next 60 days.

“I have to look at all competitions. You have to look at the League Cup, Europa League and the national team. So I think rotation is good. In the future it will be different,” Sarri admitted.

“In December and January, you need to change also in the Premier League because we will play every three days.”
