CHELSEA manager Maurizio Sarri says Victor Moses and Danny Drinkwater are outcasts because neither fit his favoured formation.

And Sarri admits that scenario is unlikely to change.

The Chelsea boss said: “Drinkwater, for me, is suitable for a midfield with two midfielders. I told him two months ago what I think.

“Moses is more suitable to play like a wing-back, rather than like a winger or a full-back.”

As for their chances of breaking into the first team, they seem bleak.

“They have to improve – but their characteristics are a little bit different”

Sarri added: “I don’t know. They have to improve – but their characteristics are a little bit different.”

Nigeria star Moses, 27 (right) was a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge under previous managers Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

But since the summer arrival of Italian coach Sarri, the Blues wing-back has found himself dumped on the bench.

Drinkwater, meanwhile, is faring even worse.

The £35million ex-Leicester midfielder’s only action this term was as a substitute in the Community Shield.

Whether they will stay and battle for a place under Sarri remains to be seen – but it seems it would take a massive change of approach from the Chelsea boss to bring them back into the fold.
