Chelsea boss Sarri insists Morata has his trust

Claudio Ranieri takes Premier League bottom side Fulham back to one of his former clubs highflying Chelsea on Sunday

"Friend is a big word, I think, but I like him very much", said Sarri.

"The goal will give him confidence, like Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata".

Fulham haven't beaten their neighbours for 12 years, but will make the short trip in better spirits after ending a run of seven straight defeats in all competitions with victory over Southampton.

Fulham made a disastrous start to the season following promotion from the Championship and Slavisa Jokanovic was sacked as manager last month.

The Blues responded from a first competitive loss under Sarri, after 18 matches unbeaten, to Tottenham last Saturday, with a fifth win from as many Europa League Group L games.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Putin clasped each other's hands and smiled widely as they greeted each other Friday. The world will have to wait a little longer for an update on how Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are getting on.

Cairney picked up an ankle injury on his third Premier League appearance and is yet to score a goal this season but has been moved into a more advanced role by new Cottagers boss Ranieri.

Alvaro Morata has five Premier League goals in the Premier League's latest edition of 2018-19 two fewer than Eden Hazard. "I am very happy with this because, in the last three matches, we had big problems to get into the match". He scored a lot of goals there, and I want the same again.

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.

Fabregas, who signed for the Blues from FC Barcelona back in 2014, will be hoping to be involved when Chelsea FC take on Fulham in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Sunday lunchtime.

Chelsea lock horns with former manager Claudio Ranieri, who is now the man in charge at Craven Cottage. "I ask him during training 'shoot at goal, shoot at goal" but he passes and he passes.
