Chelsea's Sarri praises recalled Kepa as keeper shines

Chelsea's Sarri praises recalled Kepa as keeper shines

But Kepa nearly proved the decision to be a mistake when he failed to deal with a routine cross on 18 minutes and, had Fulham forward Ryan Babel been more alert, the Netherlands global would surely have put his side 1-0 ahead.

"Considering the man, no [it was not considered], because I know him very well", the Italian said. He made a mistake and [we had] a misunderstanding. But, with another man, yes of course.

A players revolt also dominated the tabloids yet it was quickly shut down by senior players at the club, and the remarkable turnaround in results put testament to Sarri still having complete authority over the squad.

However, the Spaniard was restored to the playing eleven on Sunday, when Chelsea beat Fulham to make it back-to-back wins since the defeat at Wembley. We didn't kill the match and then in the last 20-25 minutes we were really very exhausted - physically but also mentally.

Parker said the game had been a rollercoaster of emotions for him on the touchline.

It's worth pointing out, though, that Jenner had an enormous leg up when it came to building, promoting, and scaling her company. Kylie would be in 2,057th place whether she was self-made or inherited. "I honestly don't wake up even thinking about it".

Chelsea Football Club are in stormy waters at present; with their Fifa transfer ban coming in this summer and an ageing, seemingly lost, dressing room, the forecast for 2019 seems bleak. But it feels very much like most are making plans for next season which look very different to what's in place right now. "I would be really very happy". "We'll try to take the maximum points". It's not easy. We have to fight until the last minute of the last match [against Tottenham].

"Top four is a hard war, because we're not only four teams, we're six teams".

The penalty shootout then began with Kepa in goal, but despite him saving Leroy Sane's penalty, his teammates David Luiz and Jorginho couldn't convert from the spot, handing the trophy to Manchester City and the headlines to Kepa Arrizabalaga.

It usually does. Sarri won his first five league games in charge, adjusting Chelsea's tactical set-up to fit his own attacking brand, known across the continent as 'Sarri-ball.' The fans took to the chain-smoking former banker, while the players seemed to prefer him to his combustible predecessor, Antonio Conte. That was very important for our confidence. "I think that a minimum of consistency has arrived, but we have to continue".
