"Two strikers scored and that is very important".

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.

Claudio Ranieri has called on Tom Cairney to rediscover the form which saw him play an integral role in Fulham's push for Premier League promotion.

"Whenever I play my former teams, it's always special", said Ranieri at his Friday press conference. We only needed to play in the offensive phase.

"But at the same time it's a new position for me". In midfield, the Italian trusts in N'Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho.

Ranieri rejected suggestions Sarri has based his playing style on those observations, instead claiming he himself looks up to the former investment banker.


"He's a very good coach and deserves to be where he is".

New Fulham boss Ranieri has nudged midfielder Cairney into a more advanced role, sitting just off target man Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Asked about visiting Chelsea's Cobham training ground, Ranieri added: "Yes I have been there, he was very, very kind with me". It was very interesting.

The 18-year-old impressed in pre-season and Sarri handed him a start against PAOK at Stamford Bridge last night.

Hazard played for 62 minutes as Chelsea advanced to the Europa League knockout stages with victory at BATE Borisov of Belarus, having made his return as a substitute in last Sunday's win over Crystal Palace.

"And also Hazard scored a great goal for Leicester (earning Chelsea a draw against Tottenham in 2016, handing Leicester the title)".

Fabregas is one of a number of Chelsea players to have become frustrated on the fringes of Sarri's plans, but believes he will get more opportunities during the busy festive fixture schedule.
