Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi still needs to prove Premier League credentials

"When we met [recently], Maurizio asked: 'Do you remember, I came to visit you?' but I forget everything - even what happened yesterday", said Ranieri, whose new team have won once at Stamford Bridge in 54 years.

"I think that Hudson-Odoi played very well but the type of match suited his characteristics", Sarri was quoted by Metro UK as saying at post-match.

The 31-year-old has insisted that he has not spoken to any foreign clubs over a potential move in January, and is likely to remain with Chelsea until the end of the season. "If he [was] already ready now to make a difference in a team like Chelsea, he would be the best player in Europe in two years".

The loss at Wembley has left Chelsea sitting fourth in the table and ten points off leaders Manchester City but with Arsenal just one point behind in fifth, the west Londoners need a win over Fulham or they risk dropping out of the top four. We only needed to play in the offensive phase.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard should be available after an ankle injury, with head coach Maurizio Sarri set to rotate his squad again after making 10 changes for the midweek Europa League win. He's really very able to do this.

In October, GM offered buyouts to thousands of blue- and white-collar workers in an attempt to reduce payroll and other costs. The Oshawa plant, however, has been producing an older model, she said .

"Usually you can live very well for two, three months, then you're in trouble", said Sarri.

But despite being impressed with the youngster's performance, Sarri wasn't getting carried away.

"I want him to play as well in the Premier League as he did in the Championship". The last three matches we had big problems with the impact to the match. I'm happy. That's the most important thing.

Sarri has said that Hazard's dip in form has come as a result of a lack of training due to his recent injuries.

While Chelsea offered him a five-year deal in the summer and would consider loaning him out in January, the England Under-17 World Cup victor is reluctant to sign as things stand.
