Sarri aims for long-term future at Chelsea

Manchester City announce new Gabriel Jesus contract with brilliant video

Speaking to the official site, the 21-year-old said: "I would like to thank the fans for the welcome and for how well they have treated me".

Most of the players who were on duty at the World Cup have now returned to training but Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne are still on their post-Russia breaks.

In contrast, Sarri has had to work his way up from lower-league managerial jobs and is yet to win a major competition despite enjoying an impressive spell at home-town club Napoli which saw him land the Chelsea role. However, Hodgson told talkSPORT: "I spoke to Wilf yesterday and he certainly gave me no indication it was true about wanting to quit the club".

The manager has confirmed his record £60 million ($78 million) signing is in contention to start the match after he was forced off during last weekend's final match of the USA pre-season tour against Bayern Munich.

City are also without a number of key players following their World Cup exploits but Guardiola will want to be successful and keep the winning feeling flowing heading into the new campaign.

North Korea is continuing to build new missiles, according to US officials cited by the Washington Post . It had been used to assemble space launch vehicles and develop and test liquid-fuel rocket engines.

"Always Chelsea is a big rival".

The City manager also revealed how much he was looking forward to locking horns with Sarri, who replaced Conte last month. "At this point of the season it is important the performance, we have to improve up close". "The style of play will be flawless for English football". Given Mahrez's competitor on the other side, Jorginho, is not known for his goalscoring, the Algerian appears the better bet to get on the scoresheet. "We are going to start to think what we have do to this season maintain the level of last season". "I'm so happy he came here".

Cesc Fabregas may miss out due to a minor knee problem. "I think today we could see very good combinations, playing from the back, pressing high, so that's the way we want to play against them and that's the way we can win the game".

"At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of the club, of Chelsea", Sarri added.
