EPL: Mourinho speaks on Sarri's future in Chelsea

Chelsea's Gonzalo Higuain left challenges for the ball with Fulham's Joe Brian during the English Premier League soccer match between Fulham and Chelsea at Craven Cottage stadium in London England Sunday

However, the Spaniard was restored to the playing eleven on Sunday, when Chelsea beat Fulham to make it back-to-back wins since the defeat at Wembley.

It was the Argentine's third league goal in five matches since joining Chelsea as he's slowly showing why they signed him.

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.

Kepa's return nearly started in embarrassing fashion when he made a complete hash of catching Kevin McDonald's cross in a swirling wind, the ball slipping through his grasp as he was challenged by Ryan Babel.

Whilst I don't know Mauricio Sarri personally, he certainly doesn't seem like the type of man to take public humiliation kindly.

The Chelsea full-back said of that link up: "It is something we are trying to improve on when we get into those areas, to try to find the right pass. Gonzalo is very clever in his movements". "But I am really very happy with the performance for 60 minutes and the result". He made a mistake and [we had] a misunderstanding.

Having also beaten Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, Chelsea have taken their campaign back on track with Sarri leading them to a top four charge in the Premier League.

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

Winning manager Maurizio Sarri said his players were forced to hang on in the final quarter and put the Blues' inability to kill the game off down to fatigue. We are fighting. In the last four matches, we did well.

"It was different from the way we played in the first three months".

"You don't change your character because of the situation; you change the situation", said the Brazil worldwide.

Another man who found a measure of redemption at Craven Cottage was Jorginho, who netted the game's decisive goal - and his first for Chelsea since the opening day of the season - after this week pledging to win over the supporters who have criticised him.

By doing so, the Blues were able to play the counter-attacking style that numerous first team used to win the title two short years ago. The Blues lined up in a 4-5-1 / 4-2-3-1 formation as opposed to the normal 4-3-3.
