Maurizio Sarri was wary to keep his distance from his players as he prepares for the visit of Huddersfield Town this weekend.
The Blues have been left wounded after suffering their biggest defeat since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003, a 4-0 humiliation away at Bournemouth in midweek.
Pressure is mounting on Sarri and given he is adamant he will not compromise on his 'Sarri-ball' philosophy, he needs wins to help his case to remain in charge.

New signing Gonzalo Higuain was one of the club's big names to fall flat against Bournemouth and the club are keen for Sarri to display an alternative approach to help grind out results.
Defeat saw them drop out of the top four at the expense of Unai Emery's Arsenal side and Chelsea know that should the Gunners lose to Manchester City, victory over Huddersfield Town can put them back in the driving seat for a top four spot.
