Chelsea vs Fulham, Premier League

Adjust Comment Print

Chelsea have lost just once under Maurizio Sarri. Across his three Europa League outings, against modest opposition (BATE Borisov twice and PAOK Salonika), the winger has registered a goal and assist.

Chelsea reportedly face a battle to convince youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to pen a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi's situation has attracted tentative interest from Spain and Germany, with Maurizio Sarri having suggested this week he is not yet convinced the forward is ready for top-flight football.

"I think he played very well, but the type of match was for his characteristics".

Sarri has revived Chelsea since replacing Antonio Conte, guiding them to fourth in the table - seven points adrift of leaders Manchester City - and the last 32 of the Europa League. He's really very able to do this.

"But I want to see him in a match when he has to play in a defensive phase".

Another added: "Hudson-Odoi is just showing that he at least deserves to be on the bench every weekend".

Giroud's performance may not dislodge Morata as first-choice striker against Fulham on Sunday, particularly as the Frenchman appeared to suffer an ankle knock in the second half.

The 27-year-old scored the winning goal for Fulham in the Championship play-off final at Wembley as they returned to England's top-flight after a four-year absence.

"For us at Leicester N'Golo was a fantastic midfielder with Danny Drinkwater, they understood very, very well what I wanted", said Ranieri, ahead of Fulham's Premier League trip to Chelsea on Sunday.

Kepa let in three goals last weekend but was still Chelsea's best player.

"And we have to try to make very good balls for him".

10 minutes later, Giroud would score again, this time smashing home a fine volley from a Cesc Fabregas pass.

Sarri said Hazard would play for 45 or 50 minutes in Belarus, but the Belgian stayed on for over an hour.
