Robert Pires names top candidate to replace Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea FC

Chelsea players have shown signs that they are adapting to Sarri with back-to-back wins in London derbies in the last week, and Mourinho says supporters should stick by him as his philosophy takes hold at the club.

Chelsea responded to the incident by fining Arrizabalaga and Sarri backed it up by dropping him for the next game against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

Chelsea's players are "not very hard to manage" according to Maurizio Sarri, who praised the way his side have returned to form.

With goalkeeper Willy CABALLERO back on the bench, the win kept Chelsea one point behind Arsenal in sixth place and two behind Manchester United but with a game in hand. "He made a mistake, but now that is enough".

"I know the man very well".

I can kill him, but I think that was right. In the last 20 or 25 minutes we were in trouble because we were very exhausted mentally and physically after 120 minutes against Manchester City and a strong match against Tottenham.

For all the talk about "player power" and Sarri confronting it: there was very little of that in action this week.


Hazard added: 'The week was not so easy for him, but he's a great goalkeeper and he's a great guy'.

Winning the Europa League would guarantee Chelsea return to the Champions League next season, but Sarri is still hopeful of qualifying for the tournament with a top-four finish in the Premier League. We are fighting. In the last four matches, we did well.

"We have two games in the Premier League before the worldwide break, we have to be focused on those, and two legs of the Europa League and let's see where we can finish, but our aim as always at Chelsea is to try to finish as high as possible". 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.

"My opinion about Jorginho is the same", said Sarri.

The Coach spoke to Sky Sport Italia following a 2-1 Premier League victory over Fulham.

At the end of the game, they lost 4-3 on penalties after playing goalless draw in over 120 minutes of play.

Interim boss Scott Parker, a former Chelsea midfielder, has made just one change for his first match in charge, replacing Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa with Ryan Sessegnon.
