Chelsea star Pedro admits his teammates are finding is hard to carry out Maurizio Sarri's tactics against the best sides in the Premier League.

The former Napoli coach's 'Sarri-ball' gameplan, based around dominating possession and pressing the opposition, yielded impressive results during the early months of his tenure.

Sarri presided over an 18-game unbeaten run which came to a grinding halt with a 3-1 defeat against Spurs at Wembley back in November and has suffered comprehensive defeats against the likes of Bournemouth, Arsenal and Manchester City in recent weeks.

Chelsea are back in Europa League action this evening against Malmo and Pedro has urged his manager to experiment with different tactics after admitting Sarri-ball is difficult to implement against elite opposition.

'All the team follow the idea of Maurizio: press really high, stay compact, and to create chances,' Pedro said.

City played very well, so it was so difficult to press.

'But it's Maurizio's idea, and I prefer to press high when we recover the ball to create chances.
