When you are Newcastle you have to manage because you are in the Premier League. I have to give credit to my players for the effort they have (put in). It depends on the card you have and each team is different.
"It depends on the auto you have, you have to drive that vehicle in the best way", he said after the game.
"Of course, we get the luxury of watching it again".
"It's not easy to win points in the Premier League so if we can get them now, at the beginning of the season, when we are adapted to the style it's going to be even better for us".
"I like to play with five strikers if I can". It'll surely come as a welcome relief to that squad to play a possession-based system that allows them to express themselves more freely than did the more rigid approach of Sarri's predecessor and countryman Antonio Conte.
Sarri's post-match press conference saw him quizzed on both key decisions, but the Italian insisted he was not in a position to have a definitive opinion on either incident.
Eden Hazard had blasted Chelsea ahead in the 76th minute from the penalty spot after Swiss defender Fabian Schar had tripped Marcos Alonso, allowing the visitors a breakthrough after they had monopolised possession.
Newcastle responded seven minutes later, Joselu heading in a cross from DeAndre Yedlin, who appeared to elbow Olivier Giroud in the build-up.

"To draw with five minutes to the end for us it would have been more hard".
"I would say that as a defender if you go to ground in the box you're giving yourself a problem". I've only just seen it again on television. I will not complain too much about that.
"I'm more concerned about the second goal, because after the foul we have to make more concentration". "We knew playing open against them, with their ability, they can beat players".
Team News! No Jonjo Shelvey or Jamaal Lascelles for Newcastle.
We asked the question on Sunday evening - Was Rafa Benitez right to use those tactics with players available and opposition quality?
"Chelsea lost here last season, so did Manchester United and Arsenal".
"I think I touched the ball and got in front of the opponent".
"It was so hard for us, Newcastle were so compact, we needed to move the ball very fast". Not against Inter, Roma, Juventus, but if you played against the bottom 10 teams, it was usual'. I am not sure about in England. Winning here shows the character of my team. To draw with five minutes from the end, it would have been more hard. "Our character is strong".
