Chelsea ‘physically and mentally tired’, says Sarri

Sarri was reportedly on the brink of being sacked

Chelsea FC have recorded back to back wins against Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham in the Premier League to get their top-four bid back on track.

What a difference a week makes. We are fighting. In the last four matches, we did well.

"We didn't put our stamp on the game in possession. We'll try to take the maximum points".

Chelsea bounced back from defeat in the Carabao Cup final with a 2-0 win over bitter rivals Arsenal and travel to Fulham on Sunday.

"It was different from the way we played in the first three months".

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has admitted that Blues coach Maurizio Sarri realised he needed to adjust his tactics after the humiliating 6-0 defeat to Man City at the Etihad.

Now Chelsea are emboldened. "He learned from that game against Manchester City".

Sarri thought Kepa was injured, but the world's most expensive goalkeeper - a £71.6million buy from Athletic Bilbao - insisted he could play on.

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

"But now I know very well that Caballero is a very good goalkeeper and an important man for our group and our dressing room, so I have to find space for him".

Chelsea are in the driving seat to finish in the top four following back-to-back victories over Tottenham and Fulham.

The midfielder has had his detractors, due to his close relationship with Sarri, but 10 days after coming on to boos against Malmo, he was cheered off at Craven Cottage.

"I'm very, very happy for him because he scored, but my opinion about Jorginho is the same", Sarri added. The club's star, Eden Hazard, has been constantly linked with a move to Real Madrid, and Sarri is putting up very little fight to keep him.

Sarri signed Jorginho from Napoli because the Italy global 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. Leicester City fired Claude Puel in late February, and then Claudio Ranieri (who replaced Slaviša Jokanović earlier this season) suffered the same fate at relegation-doomed Fulham.

One of these teams can claim the runaway worst defence in the Premier League.

"I wouldn't want to do it any other way".
