This is John Terry's home.

Both Spanish giants were reported to have expressed an interest in signing the winger, but the player himself has claimed that he never wanted to leave Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are favourites to maintain their ideal start to the league season at Stamford Bridge against Neil Warnock's men, who are winless in their opening four games.

"I remember in my first season in Naples, the average points per match during the season was 2.28, I think".

Chelsea FC are aiming to at the very least break back into the top four this season after the Blues ended up in fifth place last term under Antonio Conte.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea's Premier League clash with Cardiff City, manager Sarri revealed that Terry told him he is looking to have one final season playing the game. But I don't know - he told me another thing, that he wants to play.

"It's very hard. The gap last season was 30 points so I think to go above 30 points in one season is very, very hard".

Chelsea have won each of their opening four Premier League games to a season for the sixth time (also 2004-05, 2005-06, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2014-15), at least twice more than any other side in the competition's history.

"At the moment, I can answer Manchester City or Liverpool [are the contenders], he said".

"No, because we have to play seven matches in 23 days so I had to work", the Italian added, when asked if he had enjoyed some downtime during the worldwide break.

Sarri went on to say whilst he is certainly hoping to be proven wrong, he thinks the likelihood of his side closing the gap on City is highly unlikely and that his aim is simply to improve his side, rather than chase the title. I have seen a lot of matches, of Cardiff and PAOK, West Ham and Liverpool, so I had to work. "For the moment, I'm really very happy to stay here". I feel like at home.
