The four Chelsea changes Sarri is expected to make against Fulham

 Chelsea go into the match with Fulham on Sunday off the back of an impressive 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur  However, this west London derby could have a big impact on the players with the Blues also having to come through a brutal 120 minutes of action last weekend in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City  Maurizio Sarri admitted after the game on Wednesday night that he changed his tactics to not press so high in the second half so that the players weren’t stretched too much physically  It worked well with Spurs not having a single shot on target throughout the entire game, with Harry Winks coming closest by hitting the bar  But with such an exhaustive run of games, Sarri admitted that he is going to have to make some changes to his starting team    “I need to value the recovery of every single player,” Sarri said “Then we have to decide But I think we need to change three or four players, I don't know how many But we need to change some  “In the last three matches we were consistent, I think

We won in the Europa League, we drew after 90 minutes against City, and won 2-0 against Tottenham with three very good performances  “So now we need to continue We need to continue, first of all, with the performance because the result is only a consequence, I think ”  After serving his punishment from the club and Sarri, it is likely Kepa Arrizabalaga will come back into the starting XI for Willy Caballero  Meanwhile, David Luiz started both the Carabao Cup final and against Spurs, so Andreas Christensen could get his chance to play in the centre of defence    Mateo Kovacic put in a decent shift against Spurs to help get the win, so Sarri could make the usual swap between the Croatian and Ross Barkley  Emerson Palmieri could also get another chance in the Premier League for Marcos Alonso, with those being the four changes that Sarri could be set to make  Expected Chelsea XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Emerson, Jorginho, Kante, Barkley, Hazard, Pedro, Higuain    Keep up to date with the latest news, features and exclusives from footballlondon via the free football london app for iPhone and Android   Available to download from the App Store and Google Play
