Asked which teams are in title contention, Sarri said: "At the moment I can answer City or Liverpool, at the moment".

"We need another step I think to be at the same level".

"It's a hard game for everybody, against Cardiff", Sarri added.

Chelsea could welcome Cesc Fabregas back in to the squad after he recovered from a knee injury that's hampered him since the Community Shield but a place on the bench is the best he can hope for as he's not deemed fit to start just yet. To close that gap in only one season is very hard.

It might be the right time for the defender to hang his boots and join the Sarri's coaching staff at the Stamford Bridge.
