Kepa Arrizabalaga apology accepted by Chelsea players, says Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Chelsea news: Jorginho sends message to fans who booed him vs Malmo

Maurizio Sarri is already planning for next season after insisting he expects to remain in charge at Chelsea despite his troubled debut campaign.

There is a chance that last weekend's incident was a genuine misunderstanding. Kepa had required treatment towards the end of extra time, and it is not implausible that the message between pitch and dugout could have been lost in communication.

Chelsea XI to play Fulham: Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Barkley; Willian, Higuain, Hazard.

Sixth-placed Chelsea have 56 points, five behind third-placed Spurs, who they beat 2-0 last Wednesday.

Maurizio Sarri declared the Kepa Arrizabalaga controversy was over after the Chelsea goalkeeper began to make amends for his Wembley mutiny with an impressive display in yesterday's 2-1 win at Fulham. If we are to win our game in hand, we will leapfrog Manchester United and be in fourth place.

Speaking with an Italian outlet regarding the tumultuous past few weeks, Sarri stated he only focused on getting the job done at Chelsea and had ignored rumours regarding his future at the west London club during that time.

"Very well", the Chelsea manager responded when asked how he thought his goalkeeper had played.

"It was a normal decision [to bring him back], I think", Sarri said.

"There were a lot of factors which made us think "wow, this is big". When everyone talked about my dismissal, I was talking with the club to plan the team for next season, so I was always relaxed". Now the situation is closed. I spoke with him during this week and he understood.

He said: "Higuain played a very good match". It's really very important your feeling at the moment. You learn how to deal with the press; it is very specialised, they have top commentators [with] great experience in football, the journalists are also very clever in using the emotion of football in Italy. He made a mistake and [we had] a misunderstanding.

Winning the Europa League would guarantee Chelsea return to the Champions League next season, but Sarri is still hopeful of qualifying for the tournament with a top-four finish in the Premier League.

However, they were level for just three minutes as the much-maligned Jorginho curled in a lovely effort from just outside the box for his first Chelsea goal since the opening day of the season, having been set up by Eden Hazard.
