PFA Team of the Year recognition has been received, as have further senior worldwide call-ups with Spain.
Maurizio Sarri says his side still have a lot of work to do to be at the level he's looking for but the signs are positive that Chelsea will be right in the mix for the top four after missing out on Champions League qualification last season. He's doing very well in the offensive phase. "He has great qualities from the physical and technical point of view, but he has to improve in the tactical point of view".
'Maybe Tammy, ' Sarri said.
Chelsea may not yet look like a Premier League title contender, but they continue to win like one. We go to Chelsea and we know how hard the game is going to be.

The best and worst of David Luiz was on show in the first half.
The Spain striker won fewer than half his 16 duels and touched the ball only 11 times before being taken off for Giroud, who played a role in helping Pedro score Chelsea's first. But in this kind of match, usually you can win in the last 20-25 minutes. He will be important for sure, starting in September when we will play every three days. It began some five years ago when Howe, then managing in the Championship, approached Sarri, at the time in charge at Empoli, asking if he might shadow him for a while.
However, his apparent inability to make himself useful or risky in other ways is not what Chelsea had in mind when they set a club transfer record to prise him from Real Madrid last summer. "Not until the end of the season".
But everything appears to be going right for Sarri at the moment and his decision to introduce Pedro in the 65th minute was rewarded when the Spaniard struck the opening goal just seven minutes later.
