An unstoppable Jorginho and Chelsea were suddenly facing embarrassing defeats.

But from the resulting corner, Chelsea were punished for an very bad piece of defending as Fulham grabbed a 28th-minute equaliser. The poor performance of Jorginho brought irk to Chelsea fans who questioned the physicality of the Italian.

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri believes the Kepa Arrizabalaga furore has galvanised his squad.

Arrizabalaga joined the Blues in a world record fee for goalkeepers last summer after Thibuat Courtois forced a move to Real Madrid previous year.

The Blues were thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City in the Premier League before losing the League Cup final to Pep Guardiola's men last month.

Chelsea go into their round-of-16 tie against Kyiv having qualified with a 5-1 aggregate win over Malmo, and Sarri indicated that the Europa League is an important competition for his players.

Sarri said: "I feel the same as before, but happier because the results are positive". If you're up to challenging the best then play www.fantasy-premier.com now!

In reality, his emphatic applauding of the crowd was the most action his palms had received all evening: we'll never know if Mauricio Pochettino had identified a weakness in the Chelsea goal, as his side never really deigned to test it. So, for him, it's very important to finish the match in that way. Going forward I think that if he cannot get the players to invest in his ideologies, his ties with Chelsea football club could be in danger. In the match against Tottenham, [Willy] Caballero did very well, in the match against Fulham, Kepa did very well.

N'golo Kante of Chelsea is challenged by Oleksandr Zinchenko of Manchester City during the Carabao Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester City at Wembley Stadium on February 24, 2019 in London, England.

Impressive wins followed, not least an assured victory against Manchester City in December, and as recently as a fortnight ago Chelsea sat comfortably in fourth place.

However, Sarri has since played down the incident, despite his clear anger at his goalkeeper's disobedience at the time, and insisted that the events were merely down to a misunderstanding, opting to avoid questions over whether the substitution was planned earlier.
