Sarri not anxious Ranieri has inside track on his methods

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

I will keep striving to play for my club.

Sarri said 67-year-old Ranieri, who acquired the nickname "The Tinkerman" during his four year spell in charge of Chelsea from 2000-2004, said he would not go so far as to classify his compatriot as a friend.

The world cup victor scored a very vital goal against BATE in the Europa League competition.

Cairney struck the Championship play-off final victor in Fulham's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Wembley that secured their Premier League promotion.

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.

Chelsea have confirmed their starting team and substitutes to play host to London rivals Fulham at Stamford Bridge in a Premier League clash this afternoon.

"He makes assists but also he can score goals, these are important because he has very good timings to arrive, he has a good left foot and I say to him 'try, try" but, it's a little hard'.

New Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri will be hoping to inflict only a second defeat of the season against his former employers. Now, when I have been out of work, I have often visited other teams to learn. "He is able to play well in this and I want to see him when we have to play more in the defensive phase". Sarri suggested this week N'Golo Kante is not the right sort of midfielder to play in front of his defence - Fabregas may be.

Ranieri enjoyed his first taste of English football when managing Chelsea between 2000 and 2004, and admitted he always loves returning to Stamford Bridge. "He has been straightforward with me, and I need to be ready when the opportunity comes". He scored a lot of goals there, and I want the same again.

Or does he deserve more patience after how good he's been for us over the past few years?
