Chelsea boss Sarri wary of Fulham after Ranieri sacking

Chelsea starting XI

'With Jorginho it is easier, I think.

Chelsea were reportedly considering sacking Sarri after a run of bad results away from home but three consecutive clean sheets in all competitions have eased the pressure on the 60-year-old Italian.

Defence: Marcos Alonso was recalled against Tottenham on Wednesday night but Emerson Palmeiri impressed during the Spaniard's absence in recent games so I think we'll see him come in at left-back while Cesar Azpilicueta should continue at right-back ahead of Davide Zappacosta. "And so we have to front the reaction", Sarri told reporters on Friday (March 1).

Kepa Arrizabalaga's refusal to be substituted in the Carabao Cup final had raised further questions over his manager's authority in the Chelsea dressing room, following heavy league defeats by Bournemouth and Manchester City in the league. I was lucky because, with Napoli, we returned to the Champions League.

"I can believe that he has no problem to play under pressure".

That was before the Kepa Arrizabalaga substitution furore when the world's most expensive goalkeeper refused to go off at Wembley with penalties looming. "I hope that Tottenham will be involved, of course", Sarri said at a press conference at Cobham Training Ground.




"Now I am in the first season in England, and I started to understand some things, not everything at the moment, so now I realise that here it [takes] longer, more hard".

"To think that he spent the time to write a long, detailed message giving me some advice on how he sees things was truly inspirational really, and I know it sounds a big comment, but it's the truth".

N'Golo Kante has been absolutely sensational in the last few matches for Chelsea and despite playing every minute in the last two matches, the French midfield dynamo is expected to start once again on Sunday.

Chelsea's club captain is Gary Cahill, but the defender has not played since November and is out of contract at the end of the season.

'For him, it's very important to finish the match in that way.

The ploy worked to fine effect during Chelsea's unbeaten start to the Premier League season, but opponents have targeted the 27-year-old with increasing success over the past couple of months. "I'd like very much to do the same with this club".
