Emerson to miss two Italy games

Chelsea have confirmed Italy international left-back Emerson Palmieri will be out for at least four weeks, missing two Euro 2020 qualifiers.

The Brazil-born former Roma player limped off during the Premier League game with Liverpool at the weekend.

“Emerson now won't be back until the other side of the international break,” explained Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

“It will be a few weeks because it is the recurrence of an injury, so we have to be a bit careful with it.”

Report: Milan rejected Abraham

Milan turned down the opportunity to sign Tammy Abraham this summer, claim Italian reports, before he became a Chelsea sensation.

There had indeed been reports the striker was in talks for a move to Serie A following his impressive showing on loan with Aston Villa last season.

However, Tuttomercatoweb now maintain it was Milan who pulled the plug on the deal, considering Abraham too inexperienced at the top level.

He turns 22 next week and has this season scored seven goals in six Premier League games.

Sarri: 'Juve and 10-12 teams'

Maurizio Sarri wants Juventus to “enjoy our football” against Atletico Madrid. “There are 10-12 Champions League teams with the same resources as us.”

It kicks off on Wednesday at the Wanda Metropolitano at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

“Miralem Pjanic is available, he trained regularly with the group today and we’ll see if he starts or not,” said the Coach in a Press conference.

Juve won the last eight Serie A titles in a row, but see the Champions League as something of an obsession.

Conte: Italy has tactics problem

Inter boss Antonio Conte has criticised the Italian Press for being too ‘fixated’ on formations. “They don’t give a damn in England!”

Conte has begun his Inter reign with a back three, and the Coach reacted angrily to being asked whether he would switch to a four-man defence against Slavia Prague in Tuesday’s Champions League opener.

“Do they say that I’m more a League coach than a European one? You live by clichés...” the former Chelsea boss said at a Press conference.

Jorginho intends to stay at Chelsea “for at least another four years,” said his agent, who also denied any Maurizio Sarri call from Juventus.

The midfielder followed Sarri to Stamford Bridge from Napoli last year and won the Europa League, so there were naturally reports the pair would be reunited again at Juve.

“No, nothing of the sort happened,” agent Joao Santos told Radio Kiss Kiss.
