Sarri facing Chelsea sack after Bournemouth defeat

Sarri facing Chelsea sack after Bournemouth defeat Maurizio Sarri is facing the prospect of losing his job at Chelsea after a shock 4-0 defeat away to Bournemouth. The Daily Mail claims that the pressure is rising on the Chelsea head coach after Eddie Howe’s side eased past them on Wednesday night. It is claimed that Sarri kept his players in the changing room for 40 minutes after the full-time whistle, without the rest of his coaching staff. Chelsea fans were seen to turn on the Italian throughout the game, with the Blues now losing back-to-back Premier League games in a very unconvincing manner.

The Blues boss is adamant that he will only be successful at Stamford Bridge if he sticks to his tactics, despite poor results in recent weeks.

Maurizio Sarri insisted his job was "always at risk" after a humiliating loss to Manchester City put further pressure on the Chelsea head coach.

Chelsea suffered their third defeat in four league games, a 6-0 thrashing at the Etihad Stadium marking the club's biggest ever Premier League loss.

Sarri's side have fallen to sixth in the table and sit a point behind the resurgent and fourth-placed Manchester United.

Asked if he feared for his job, the Italian said there was always pressure and a risk he could be sacked.

"You have to ask the club. I am worried about my team," Sarri told a news conference.

"I am worried about the performance, but my job is always at risk. So, I am not worried about the club. You have to ask the club."

Chelsea are next in action with a trip to Malmo for the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.

Sarri wants squad overhaul at Chelsea.
Maurizio Sarri will reportedly tell Chelsea that he wants to overhaul the current squad if he avoids the sack at Stamford Bridge. According to The Times, Sarri, like Antonio Conte before him, is challenging the club to back him over the players. Sarri has found himself under pressure after a desperate run of results in his first season at Chelsea. The Italian head coach believes that the players available to him are not able to produce the style of football he is looking to achieve at the club. Chelsea players have reportedly raised concerns about the sheer level of tactical demands placed upon them by Sarri.
