Fernandes has been tipped to make good success at the Old Trafford and the Premier League as a whole as a result of the potentials he had shown. "He's a very great player, one of the most important in Europe in that position. Both lost two points", Hazard told Chelsea TV. We are fighting. In the last four matches, we did well.
'Now we have 11 games to play till the end of the season.

The midfielder has had his detractors, due to his close relationship with Sarri, but 10 days after coming on to boos against Malmo, he was cheered off at Craven Cottage.
"My opinion about Jorginho is the same", said Sarri. "His training was really very good, the reaction today was very good".
Parker said the game had been a rollercoaster of emotions for him on the touchline.
