Maurizio Sarri has admitted that Marcos Alonso is suffering from a dip in form but expressed his reluctance to replace him with Emerson Palmieri for the visit of Manchester City on Saturday.

Alonso has been a regular starter at left-back under Sarri this term after spending two seasons playing further forward as a left wing-back for Antonio Conte.



Sarri was also asked about the form of N'Golo Kante at Cobham.
