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

Despite the reported turmoils at the west London club, they responded positively with a string of vital results in recent weeks.

It was really very important for us, the [Carabao Cup] final, losing on penalties but, after the last match against City in Manchester when we lost 6-0, we played at the same level as them. We are fighting. In the last four matches, we did well.

Third-placed Spurs, beaten 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, are just five points better off than the Blues.

Sarri's side took the lead through Gonzalo Higuain before Calum Chambers equalised at Craven Cottage.

Sarri signed Jorginho from Napoli because the Italy worldwide was familiar with his coaching demands and says Chelsea fans will not see the best of him until his team-mates are up to speed.

And Fulham were made to pay just three minutes later as Higuain, who had missed two earlier chances, finished off after some neat interplay between Willian and Cesar Azpilicueta on the right flank.

According to Evening Standard, the Portuguese, who also managed Chelsea as well as Inter Milan in the Serie A is pleading with the Blues supporters to rally behind Sarri as the players understand his approach. Sarri played Hazard as a false-nine to emphasize speed on the counter-attack. Definitely. In life, you need to adapt to things.

"He was really very exhausted in the last part of the match, and we were lucky that [Mateo] Kovacic could come on and do really very well".

Quizzed on whether that particular match served as a lesson for the ex-Napoli boss, Rudiger replied: "Of course".

Sarri reckons Mauricio Pochettino's men, who until recently were trying to force their way into the title fight with Manchester City and Liverpool, should be looking over their shoulders.

Given they are locked in a battle for a top-four finish domestically, Sarri will want to see his side go the distance and win Europe's secondary club competition in a bid to secure Champions League football for next season. But it is always good to find the golden middle.
