  • Ranieri backs Sarri’s call on Kante

Chelsea will be able to call upon Eden Hazard as the Belgian global is expected to shake-off a minor knock to start in attack but Victor Moses misses out with a back injury.

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.

"I think that, first of all, we approached the match very well", Sarri said. His attitude is not a problem for the group, for me in training he's doing very well.

It was at Chelsea where Ranieri had held his first coaching job in England and he expressed his delight at the chance of returning to Stamford Bridge, where he occupied the dugout from 2000-2004. "He's very able to do this, but I want to see him in a match when he has to play in a defensive phase".

His only experience of English football's top division came during the final months of Antonio Conte's reign: a 25-minute cameo against Bournemouth and brief two minutes at home to Tottenham Hotspur. "He wanted to speak with me, with Gianfranco (Zola)".

"Usually a team of Claudio's is really very solid".

"Usually he has a team risky at counter-attacks like in Leicester, but not only in Leicester".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is confident a good turn he did for Fulham coach Claudio Ranieri will not come back to bite him when his side clash with the Premier League's bottom club on Sunday.

Olivier Giroud has always been considered one of the Premier League's best looking footballers, he is a very handsome man, but it seems that most people didn't realise quite how ripped he is.

Fulham, meanwhile, sit last in the league with just eight points through 13 games.

However, new boss Claudio Ranieri will return to his former club after replacing Slavisa Jokanovic last month and the Italian got off to the ideal start after beating Southampton 3-2 last weekend.
