Cesc Fabregas issues update on his Chelsea FC situation

Cesc Fabregas issues update on his Chelsea FC situation

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.

France's World Cup-winning midfielder Kante formed the bedrock of Ranieri's 2016 Premier League winners at Leicester, but has been challenged to play higher up the field this season under Sarri at Chelsea. Of course every player wants to play more.

"I think that, first of all, we approached the match very well", Sarri said. We needed only to play in the offensive phase.

"He's fantastic, because N'Golo is intelligent, he can run, attack and defend".

"We approached the match very well", Sarri added. The buccaneering full back will hope to build upon those 45 minutes tonight, but he just looks so positionally naive at times that Sarri must fear how ruthlessly he could be exploited against a higher calibre of opponent.

Chelsea lock horns with former manager Claudio Ranieri, who is now the man in charge at Craven Cottage. Hopefully more opportunities will come.

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

"He deserves it. He has a lot of jobs in his career, and he deserves where he is".

Though his goal may not be enough to see him start ahead of Morata and Giroud, he is definitely at the right path to becoming a great player for the Blues. It was very interesting.

It was at Chelsea where Ranieri had held his first coaching job in England and he expressed his delight at the chance of returning to Stamford Bridge, where he occupied the dugout from 2000-2004.

The Italian suggested Hudson-Odoi benefited from the early dismissal of Yevhen Khacheridi, for a professional foul on Giroud, which provided Chelsea with more space to exploit, but is not yet ready for the rigours of the Premier League.
