Claudio Ranieri takes Premier League bottom side Fulham back to one of his former clubs highflying Chelsea on Sunday

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.

Despite coming into the game in the second half, the former Real Madrid star managed to score a goal which will go a long way to influence Sarri's decision on who will lead the attacking line against Fulham on Saturday.

'I believe in Aleksandar, but I think he needs more and more, and time for him to understand my philosophy, ' said Ranieri.

Chelsea suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend at the hands of Spurs in the Premier League but they still remain of the forces to be reckoned with. We needed only to play in the offensive phase. He has to be very, very strong; I want him to improve his pressing, and that's it.
