Chelsea boss Sarri insists Morata has his trust


Claudio Ranieri says his Fulham side are ready for the daunting task of playing one of his former clubs Chelsea on Sunday, an occasion he says will be "special" for him personally.

Morata has been less effective as the leading striker, hence, it is time to drop him and give Giroud the opportunity he so much deserves. "He is able to play well in this and I want to see him when we have to play more in the defensive phase".

Midfielder N'Golo Kante was a late call-up for the trip following illness to Cesc Fabregas, but the Frenchman did not feature and is likely to start against Everton. It's very nice for him to have a lot of options. 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.

Fulham have no new reported injuries for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

However, new boss Claudio Ranieri will return to his former club after replacing Slavisa Jokanovic last month and the Italian got off to the flawless start after beating Southampton 3-2 last weekend.

In last night's Europa League clash against PAOK, Chelsea won by a four-goal margin, no thanks to Yevhen Khacheridi's red card.

Christensen has been at Chelsea since 2015, is contracted at the club until the end of the 2021/22 season, and has so far made exactly 50 appearances for the first-team, collecting the Young Player of the Year award last season under favour of Sarri's predecessor Antonio Conte.

"And also Hazard scored a great goal for Leicester (earning Chelsea a draw against Tottenham in 2016, handing Leicester the title)".

Asked about visiting Chelsea's Cobham training ground, Ranieri added: "Yes I have been there, he was very, very kind with me. It's important now for us that we understand where we have to improve".

Chelsea just put in a poor performance, against a very good Spurs side.
