Fulham - Premier League - 2 December 2018

  • The Belgian last netted against Southampton in gameweek eight

Sarri said 67-year-old Ranieri, who acquired the nickname "The Tinkerman" during his four year spell in charge of Chelsea from 2000-2004, said he would not go so far as to classify his compatriot as a friend.

And the 67-year-old remains convinced of striker Mitrovic's importance to Fulham's set-up, even if he has demanded the Serbian works harder off the ball.

The Blues have only lost one of the last 26 derby matches against their west London neighbours, and are overwhelming 1/7 (1.14) favourites to come out on top for the fourth consecutive encounter.

Cairney picked up an ankle injury on his third Premier League appearance and is yet to score a goal this season but has been moved into a more advanced role by new Cottagers boss Ranieri.

He is not expected to be involved on Sunday when Chelsea welcome their former manager Claudio Ranieri to Stamford Bridge with Fulham.

I think we approached the match very well, so I am very happy with this, Sarri said.

His looks and skill on the pitch isn't exactly subtle enough to be hidden but on social media today he proved that his body is pretty well hidden most of the time. "He is able to play well in this and I want to see him when we have to play more in the defensive phase".




Much of that surrounded David Luiz's woeful performance and N'Golo Kante's ineffectiveness against Spurs.

The game would end 4-0 to Maurizio Sarri's side, who strolled to victory. He has been straightforward with me and I need to be ready for when the opportunity comes.

"It's always special (returning to Chelsea), " added Ranieri.

"And also Hazard scored a great goal for Leicester, so thank you Eden, again!"

"Until he understands, it's important he keeps scoring goals".

"This was really very good, especially because before the match we knew we were in the first position of our group after the result of BATE Borisov".
