As we wait for the Premier League to resume this weekend after a two-week break and our thirteenth game of the season, Maurizio Sarri has chosen to rotate only THREE positions in the previous twelve games. I am asking what you think of his rotation policy so far and if you think it will change?

The Napoli President is stated on record having a pop at Sarri after he left the Italian side in the summer to take over at Stamford Bridge. He claimed that Napoli could have really challenged for the Serie A trophy if Sarri had utilised the players available in the squad and to not just stick with the same players week-in, week-out. I said at the time in my Chelsea Daft Vlog that it was a real concern for me knowing the quality that we have in our squad. Not only that, but Maurizio Sarri had not won anything of note to the point that he was employed by our club. We only had the quote from their President which surely had to be worth something.

So move forward four months and twelve Premier League games into the season and we can begin to see the same pattern forming here. You have you mainstay players that will always be named on the team-sheet unless they are suspended or injured and the three positions which will rotate based on player form and fatigue. You would lay your house at casinoviking.com that it's in these three positions that changes are made right now.

In goal Kepa Arrizabalaga had made the position his own, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso as the two full-backs alongside Toni Rudiger and David Luiz in the middle of the defence. In midfield Jorginho has made the position in front of our back four his own (even though I still think he needs to switch with N'Golo Kante) with Kante alongside him on the right-hand side. Eden Hazard on the left of the main striker is the final player who will start when fit - that's a total of eight players set in stone.

The three positions up for grabs and rotated are the left of our midfield three with Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley fighting for the place, Willian and Pedro fighting for the start on the right of our front three with the main striker up for grabs between Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud. Is that enough in your view or should there be more?

The issue here which Maurizio Sarri will learn very quickly, especially heading into the busy Christmas period, is that games will come thick and fast. The Premier League is very different to Serie A because you literally have to fight for every single point. You MUST earn it here and cannot expect any of the lesser sides to roll over.

We had Eden Hazard talking of being tired last week after his exploits in the World Cup and only three weeks off before the season started to rest. We cannot afford to lose him for any sustained period of time so why not manage the games he starts in more often as Sarri did against Crystal Palace? Of course I am talking of the games against those teams struggling this year.


What about N'Golo Kante? Surely he must be feeling the same after his personal exploits for France and winning the World Cup? We cannot afford to lose him either so he needs to be managed in games also.

The point I am trying to make here is that our unbeaten start has been excellent and has surprised us all. However, the Premier League season is long and it's hard and we cannot afford to continue with the same rotation policy if we want to challenge for our targets this year. The next few weeks against Tottenham this weekend followed by Manchester City will test our mettle to find out exactly where we are as a squad and our progress under Sarri.

Chelsea have the players, the ability and the talent to really challenge on ALL fronts this season if we can manage the squad to the maximum and get the best out of our players. To do that we MUST rotate.

What do you think? Are you happy with the policy as it is or do you think at some stage it will have to change?
