Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says he wants to bring in a new signing in January but concedes spending cash won’t solve all his issues. The Blues have lost ground in the title race in recent weeks after two defeats in three Premier League matches.
Both Tottenham and Wolves have got the better of Sarri’s side and Chelsea now lie fourth.

The Londoners started the season by going 18 matches unbeaten but after recent results, a defeat to Manchester City on Saturday would leave them 13 points behind the Citizens.
Sarri thinks his side could do with one new addition but he admits all of his team’s problems will not go away just by spending money.
He told reporters: “We need to work and improve. We need to understand the style of playing. “We need to change mentality – not because the old mentality was bad but it is not suitable with the new way of playing. Then after all this, maybe you need one player.
“But you cannot think you can buy 11 new players without problems. Then the problems will be the same. You have to create a new mentality and style of playing.
“We need to arrive at 95 per cent of our potential, then we can get the last five per cent with a new player.”
