Higuain, Jorginho guide Chelsea to 2-1 win at Fulham

Chelsea news: Jorginho sends message to fans who booed him vs Malmo

Having also beaten Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, Chelsea have taken their campaign back on track with Sarri leading them to a top four charge in the Premier League.

What a difference a week makes. He would demand respect from the Chelsea players and control the dressing room as a result of everything he has achieved both on the pitch as a player and on the bench as a manager. We are fighting. In the last four matches, we did well. "We'll try to take the maximum points". The Blues still have plenty to play for this term, and they are undoubtedly in a better position now than they were this time last month.

Emerging reports claim that Chelsea and Liverpool have lost Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes to another English Premier League side.

In the midst of a hectic schedule that includes a home game against Wolves on Sunday, Sarri is considering taking a risk by resting some of his stars for the Kiev game.

Jorginho was booed by Chelsea fans when going on as a substitute in the recent win over Malmo and missed a penalty in the Carabao Cup final shootout loss to Manchester City.

Now Chelsea are emboldened.

Sarri thought Kepa was injured, but the world's most expensive goalkeeper - a £71.6million buy from Athletic Bilbao - insisted he could play on.

"We won 3-0 in the Europa League. Now is enough. But now I know very well that Caballero is a very good goalkeeper and important man for our group and our dressing-room, so I have to find space for him".

Gonzalo HIGUAIN scores opening goal for Chelsea in win against Fulham

Maurizio Sarri revealed he considered dropping Kepa Arrizabalaga for the rest of the season before restoring the Spain global to the Chelsea team for Sunday's hard-earned 2-1 win over Fulham.

Maurizio Sarri claims to have no idea what we all mean when we talk about "Sarri-ball" but if the possession-based attacking philosophy is defined by an overreliance on Jorginho, then it came up trumps at Craven Cottage yesterday, as the Brazil-born Italian midfielder scored the victor in a heated derby. We didn't kill the match and then in the last 20-25 minutes we were really very exhausted - physically but also mentally.

It was hard to tell how much was due to The Scott Parker Effect: the ex-Chelsea (and Tottenham, and West Ham, and Charlton) man afforded major improvement for the Whites, though there was always expected to be at the very least a "dead cat bounce" effect.

"I want to win for the team, for the club, not for me".

Parker restored Ryan Sessegnon to the starting line-up after an indifferent season for the 18-year-old winger.

Mauricio Sarri responded in similar fashion, indignantly storming down the tunnel, only for him then to Return to his seat just minutes later, reunited with a confused Willy Caballero. I said it to all of them.

Even if Sarri does manage to hold on to his job in West London - as he begs for time to implement his "Sarri-ball" style - he may not be able to make any moves this summer.
