Maurizio Sarri’s side are sixth in the Premier League table, but will jump up to fourth into a Champions League position if they win their game in hand.

Jorginho scored what turned out to be the winner against Fulham, as he stroked the ball into the top corner from outside the penalty area in brilliant fashion.
