Chelsea head into the contest on the back of a 3-1 league defeat by Tottenham, their first loss of the season, where Kante and Jorginho struggled to influence the game.
The result saw the Blues drop to fourth in the standings and Sarri criticised the Frenchman’s performance.
“Kante, in the last match, wanted to solve the match after the first 15 minutes, but in the wrong way. He lost the position, he attacked too much,” Sarri added.
“This one is not one of the best characteristics of Kante, but it was only in reaction to the difficulties. Maybe it’s only a question of time, but Kante has to stay near to Jorginho, especially when the ball is on the other side.”
