Maurizio Sarri hints towards utilising Chelsea's academy players more often in senior competition next season.

Maurizio Sarri has suggested that he may make use of Chelsea's academy players in senior competition next season as he claimed that "we will hear a lot of good things" about the youngsters.

The Blues have previously been criticised for seldom giving youth team players an extended run in the first team, as well as their tendency to send dozens of players on their books out on loan.

On Saturday night, several Chelsea youngsters including Marcin Bulka, Ethan Ampadu, Calum Hudson-Odoi and Lucas Piazon all saw action as they beat Inter Milan on penalties in the International Champions Cup.

"We have been working hard but it is only the start," Sarri told Sky Sports News after full time at the Allianz Riviera.

"Not everyone is here yet but the players that are here are doing well. We are a little behind physically speaking but I am happy with this result.

"Youngsters? Well, let's see. I don't have any experience in the English Premier League so let's see how long it will take some of our youngsters to have an impact. I think we will hear a lot of good things about them this season."

Chelsea have three more fixtures to play, including the Community Shield, before beginning their Premier League campaign away at Huddersfield Town.
