Fulham haven't beaten their neighbours for 12 years, but will make the short trip in better spirits after ending a run of seven straight defeats in all competitions with victory over Southampton. "Obviously in January I can sign (a pre-contract agreement) with whoever I want and probably this will attract many clubs".

The two Italians are set to face each other in a London derby when Sarri's side welcome Ranieri's charges at Stamford Bridge this weekend and both have shown mutual respect for each other.

In his last three matches, Giroud has scored four wonderful goals to silence his critics.

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.

The technique with which he scored his second goal of the night emphasized the fact that he's in form and he's ready to start more games.


Sarri has recently stated he has been a student of his compatriot, with the current Blues head coach recently revealing that in the 1990s, he had gone on to visit Ranieri who was then at Fiorentina, and that he has studied the former Leicester manager's tactics from 20 years ago.

Giroud doesn't need to score goals to be important in his defence.

It is perhaps because of the example of Sancho and Nelson, as well as his clear talent, that Bayern Munich are now one of the main clubs linked with Hudson-Odoi. "I'm very happy with this".

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. I ask him during training, "shoot at goal, shoot at goal", but he passes and he passes.

"I think that, first of all, we approached the match very well", Sarri said.
