Gonzalo HIGUAIN scores opening goal for Chelsea in win against Fulham

Chelsea, who beat Fulham thanks to goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Jorginho, remain sixth in the Premier League, two points adrift of fourth-place Manchester United.

But Kepa nearly proved the decision to be a mistake when he failed to deal with a routine cross on 18 minutes and, had Fulham forward Ryan Babel been more alert, the Netherlands global would surely have put his side 1-0 ahead. He paid for it with the club and the team. "Now the situation is closed", Sarri said.

Responses to Chelsea's birthday wishes on Twitter soon flooded in with one joking that he 'is the only player that hasn't let me down this season'.

Manager Sarri reacted furiously on the sidelines as Kepa waved away his attempts to replace him with Caballero, with some commentators speculating that the Italian could lose his job.

"I can kill him, but I think that [bringing him back] was right". I hope our fans understand Jorginho is an important player'. He understood. His behaviour this week was very good.

He continued: "I think Zidane would be a very good appointment at Chelsea. This is big". In the end, it looks like it was not big because it looks like a misunderstanding. Yes, of course, I could've done in another way. I could have done it in another way.

"I know the man very well".

"He is very clever, with a very good mentality".

The performance was great and we took three points.

"I'm very, very happy for him because he scored, but my opinion about Jorginho is the same", Sarri added. You saw the way we played against Tottenham and Manchester City [in the past week]? Of course, for him, it's not easy a first season in this football with a new team. In that position, we have some problems.

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

The 6-0 hammering resulted in the Blues' heaviest defeat in 28 years and also helped fuel speculation regarding Sarri's future into the club only a half a season into his three-year contract at Stamford Bridge.

"Top four is a hard war, because we're not only four teams, we're six teams".

Interestingly, moments before Chelsea's 3-4 defeat to Man City via penalties during Wembley's Carabao Cup final, report emerged that the former Napoli star would be sent packing if Chelsea lost.

"Then we won against Tottenham and won [against Fulham]".

UFC 235: Jones vs Smith Preview
For all his flaws and maddening missteps, Jon Jones inexorably remains the preeminent talent in mixed martial arts. Askren heads into this bout the favourite but I think that's a huge disservice to Robbie Lawler.
