Eden Hazard charges Chelsea teammates to win remaining 10 Premier League games

Maurizio Sarri claims to have no idea what we all mean when we talk about "Sarri-ball" but if the possession-based attacking philosophy is defined by an overreliance on Jorginho, then it came up trumps at Craven Cottage yesterday, as the Brazil-born Italian midfielder scored the victor in a heated derby.

Chelsea face just two of the current top six sides in the league in their remaining 10 league fixtures; Liverpool and Manchester United respectively, and are just two points behind United in fourth with a game in hand following Sunday's win at Craven Cottage.

It was unclear if Maurizio Sarri was going to keep his job a couple of weeks ago.

"The boss obviously wanted to show he demands respect from his players and he obviously put in Willy [Caballero] for the Tottenham game", Loftus-Cheek told Sky Sports News.

Afterwards, we learned Sarri had considered dropping Kepa for the season - in response to his Brent-based misdemeanour.

But first Chelsea must make sure they can fulfil the Premier League's requirements when it comes to Home-Grown Players.

Sarri said: "He played very well".

Meanwhile Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri opted to restore Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal, having dropped the Spain global for the win over Tottenham following his refusal to be substituted during the Carabao Cup final. 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.

"I know the man very well. But Kepa is a man and understood and reacted very well today". I think at the moment he is not at his top.

Sixth-placed Chelsea have 56 points, five behind third-placed Spurs, who they beat 2-0 last Wednesday.

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

As things stand, only four teams from England will qualify for the Champions League at the end of the season which logically would mean that the top-four sides on the EPL table book that spot. This is the way Fulham play and the way I want my team to play. He made a mistake on a misunderstanding, but now it's enough. I spoke with him during this week and he understood.
