  • Sarri reveals inquest into Spurs defeat questions Kante

"In December I will play games".

This does not bode well for a game against Maurizio Sarri's free-flowing outfit, which has been outscored by only Manchester City so far this league campaign.

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri got a very good, and very important, win over Southampton last week - but this is a much tougher assignment.

Fulham face Chelsea in a west London derby on Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League and Ranieri says Cairney needs to be bolder in front of goal. His goal was enough to secure Sarri's team a place in the knockout stage of the competition. "But of course every player wants to play more".

Claudio Ranieri claimed his Fulham team are ready for a hard fixture with Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend.

Sarri, who had been coaching at Antella, in the fifth and sixth tiers of Italian football, on the outskirts of Florence at the time had visited La Viola as the former banker sought to make his mark as a coach.

"Whenever I play my former teams, it's always special", said Ranieri at his Friday press conference. At the same time, I can give more in other positions. We only needed to play in the offensive phase, he's very able to do this but I want to see him in a match when he has to play in a defensive phase. "He has been straightforward with me, and I need to be ready when the opportunity comes".

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

"He has to shoot more; he has the quality to shoot, he must improve", Ranieri added.

The 31-year-old midfielder's current contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire in the summer and that has inevitably led to speculation that he could be on his way out of the club in January.

"It was really very good, especially because, before the match, we knew very well that we were first in our group after the result of BATE Borisov".
