Chelsea ‘physically and mentally tired’, says Sarri

Chelsea ‘physically and mentally tired’, says Sarri

Chelsea have recorded their second successive win in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory over Fulham in Sunday's West London derby.

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

Despite Sarri's struggles, former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes that he will prove to be a success in SW6, just as The Special One was over two stints here.

"There were a lot of factors which made us think "wow, this is big". There wasn't another way but I think that Kepa is a man. "But he needs all the team to understand very well our way of football".

"Especially with performances like this it's very good".

Chelsea would go on to lose the shoot-out, and despite both Sarri and Kepa describing the incident as a "misunderstanding", the 24-year-old was fined a week's wages by the club and subsequently dropped for the 2-0 win over Tottenham.

"Now, after the last results, Tottenham is in the race to make the top four, that is clear", he told Chelsea's official website.

Sarri was delighted for his first-half scorers, especially after the criticism aimed at midfield lynchpin Jorginho, who had not previously found the net from open play for Chelsea and who has been seen as an underwhelming presence.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports before Sunday's trip to Fulham, Sarri said: "Jorginho has a very strong character, a very strong personality".

However, they were level for just three minutes as the much-maligned Jorginho curled in a attractive effort from just outside the box for his first Chelsea goal since the opening day of the season, having been set up by Eden Hazard.

Maurizio Sarri cut a frustrated figure on the touchline as he was left angry at the goalkeeper's decision to disobey his call and continue to remain on the pitch.

"He is improving and in a couple of weeks he will be able to be at his top". He is not at his top level physically but could have scored three times today.
