Sarri had been on the brink of the sack, but a second successive victory moved his team to two points off the top four with a game in hand and just five behind Tottenham Hotspur.
Unfairly cast as the poster boy for everything that had been going wrong for Sarri, Jorginho was booed on to the pitch as a substitute in the Europa League tie against Malmo at Stamford Bridge.
But, having scored what proved to be the winning goal, Jorginho heard his name ring out from the visiting end at Craven Cottage when he was replaced by Mateo Kovacic in the second half.
Fulham looked doomed to relegation before Scott Parker’s appointment as caretaker manager and this result leaves them needing a miracle to survive.
