Chelsea were back in action on Sunday afternoon when suffering a 2-0 loss to Manchester City in the Community Shield, with Sarri having to make do without the likes of Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante and Thibaut Courtois due to their World Cup exertions.
Courtois's agent, Christophe Henrotay, has said the player wants to move to Real Madrid to be closer to his daughter, who lives in Spain. He is with us and he is our goalie but I don't know what his future will be.
"I arrived here three weeks ago and I've never seen six players, so it's very hard", he told reporters at Wembley.
It seems it's not just Sarri breathing new life into this Chelsea team.
Mourinho: I asked for five players and none have arrived
"He came from the World Cup with the injury and the time he had to rest on holiday was not enough to resolve the problem". The Red Devils have yet to win in the International Champions Cup, losing one and drawing another of their two games.
I don't think he will be hard work if he stays - we are very happy with his professionalism and his attitude.
Working with Sarri has clearly eased his transition into the first team squad and Hudson-Odoi told Sky Sports that he enjoys the former banker's attacking style, citing the fact he is free to pick up the ball in pockets of space and drive forward at will.
The former Wigan Athletic ace who converted a penalty for the Super Eagles at the World cup in Russian Federation is being tipped to lift the Blues even as new coach Maurizio Sarri is hoping to win a title even before his first season at the Stamford Bridge.
"I spoke with the club about the market but only one time, no more".

Maurizio Sarri has given Chelsea fans an insight into what we could be looking for in the transfer market between now and the end of the week.
Asked if he expects the 29-year-old to be part of his midfield this season, Sarri said: "Yes I do".
Not only has he started all of Chelsea's pre-season friendlies so far, but along with summer import Jorginho he has probably been their best player. "The match will be very hard for us", he said. The young Englishman spent last season on loan at Palace making 24 Premier League appearances, scoring two goals and bagging three assists.
