When a new manager comes on board, certain players tend to be affected as they might not fit into the new manager’s style.
The appointment of Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea boss over the summer has affected Chelsea stars Victor Moses and Danny Drinkwater.
While Drinkwater was useful player for former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, Victor Moses was key player for the Blues and played a huge role for the Blues in our 2016/17 title winning season.
Both players have struggled to get game time this season and Sarri has now admitted they are both surplus to requirements at the club as they do not suit his formation.
“The situation is that Drinkwater, for me, is suitable for a midfield with two midfielders,” Sarri said.
“I told him two months ago what I think.
“Moses is more suitable to play like a wing-back, rather than like a winger or a full-back.”
“As for their chances of breaking into the first team, they seem bleak.
Sarri added: “I don’t know. They have to improve but their characteristics are a bit different.”
Drinkwater’s only appearance for Chelsea this season was as a substitute in the Community Shield against Manchester City.
Moses’ only start this season was against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup but he failed to even make the squad for the Carabao Cup game against Derby County on Wednesday and has now been linked with a move to Crystal Palace in January.
