Scolari eyes Chelsea flair

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari is hoping his side can bring some Samba style to their first game in the Premiership on Sunday. Scolari's first game in charge is against Portsmouth at Stamford Bridge.

He said: "The idea is to put on the field, to play our game, in a way that is as similar as Brazilian football as we can. But I have players who are made for English football, their characteristics are different.

"We will try to learn about dribbling, controlling the ball, passing the ball, touching the ball and one-twos. But I need to respect the identity of the players and the quality of the players. We have some players who play similar to those in Brazil. But others don't."
