Kepa redeems himself as Chelsea seal crucial second victory on the bounce

Kepa redeems himself as Chelsea seal crucial second victory on the bounce

Their game in-hand is at home to Brighton. "He's a very great player, one of the most important in Europe in that position". Now we are only two points from the top four.

Chelsea went on to lose the game to Manchester City on spot-kicks and Kepa was subsequently dropped for Willy Caballero, who featured for the Blues in their derby victory over Tottenham.

The shot stopper disrespected the team following his refusal to be substituted in his side's EFL Cup defeat to Man City at Wembley Stadium. A hard few months at Stamford Bridge has seen Jorginho face criticism for his performances, with some pundits questioning if the midfielder is cut out for the Premier League.

Sarri's side face Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League on Thursday night before returning to Premier League action against Wolves on March 10 - live on Sky Sports.

At the end of the game, they lost 4-3 on penalties after playing goalless draw in over 120 minutes of play.

Sarri's tactics have been heavily criticised in recent months and during the 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, sections of the Chelsea faithful seemed to be in full out revolt against their coach, serenading the 60-year-old Italian with chants of 'You don't know what you're doing, ' and 'F*ck Sarri-ball'. I know the man, he is very good. Have we found a good balance of how to play?




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.

Scott Parker, right, will take charge of Fulham against Chelsea following Claudio Ranieri's sacking.

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.

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. "I will treat this as long term because I want to help this club".

"I just tried to free him up".

"They respected me before. But Kepa is a man and understood and reacted very well today".
