Sarri Methods May Force Chelsea Stars Out

Sarri Methods May Force Chelsea Stars Out

"Roman Abramovich is a fair man and he understands that Sarri needs some time to mould the club in his image", an insider at Chelsea told FourFourTwo. It was their 15th major trophy and became part of a third double when Pep Guardiola's side secured the Premier League title in April.

If the Blues capitulate again, manager Maurizio Sarri could be facing the kind of frightful reception that befell Howard Wilkinson beneath the old Twin Towers when his Leeds side lost 3-0 to Aston Villa in the 1996 final with his credit for winning the league four years earlier on the wane.

They now sit one point off the top four, and could capture silverware in this Sunday's Carabao Cup final.

Chelsea will consider sending an SOS to England assistant manager Steve Holland if they sack head coach Maurizio Sarri next week. "If I am at the club and I want Callum to play consistently, I have to sell another winger".

"He (Guardiola) was lucky", Sarri said.

Sarri has repeatedly insisted that Kante is not technically equipped to play in Jorginho's position at the base of midfield, and the France global added that he is happy to go along with his head coach's thinking.

Sarri added: "It's very easy that City is in our minds". I think the truth is in the middle.

Since, Chelsea have been recklessly inconsistent - the highs including December's win over City and the League Cup semi-final success over Spurs - and Blues fans targeted Sarri in Monday's FA Cup loss at home to Manchester United. "It's very important for us, we have to find confidence". But he does not recognise the moniker. They got beat 6-0.

Jorginho followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea and his arrival as a central midfield playmaker in Sarri's 4-3-3 formation has seen World Cup victor N'Golo Kante pushed into right midfield.

"For Chelsea, Premier League champions, Kante can play there. As a team we have some difficulty at the moment but we are all together". (@sorcierbelge)After last night's performance, if Sarri doesn't start Hudson-Odoi on Sunday, I'm not defending him any more.

From persistently selecting Jorginho at the base of his midfield and deploying N'Golo Kante further forward, to showing huge resistance to any deviation from his preferred starting line-up, Sarri's methods have been railed against by a vocal and growing minority of the Blues fanbase.
