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.

Maurizio Sarri is playing a dangerous game at Chelsea, challenging his players and the board with his refusal to change his tactics.

A 6-0 thrashing away at Manchester City on Sunday afternoon ramped up the pressure on the Italian, with the former Napoli boss running out of time in London.

The players looked distant and unresponsive against the Premier League champions, with Pep Guardiola’s side finding it far too easy to cut through Chelsea like a knife through butter.

The result has raised serious questions about Sarri’s long-term future at Chelsea and if he’ll even manage to see out the season.

From tactics to potential replacements, we’ve taken a closer look at what could happen at Stamford Bridge if the Italian were to leave his post in the near future.

Chelsea eye Holland as Sarri replacement.
Chelsea have identified former caretaker manager and assistant manager Steve Holland to replace Maurizio Sarri as head coach, should they decide to pull the trigger, according to a Telegraph Sport exclusive. Holland, now assistant to Gareth Southgate with England, left Chelsea in 2016 to link up with the international side, but has now seen his name linked with a return to Stamford Bridge with pressure mounting on Sarri. With the Blues set to face Manchester City in the EFL Cup final on Sunday, it may well prove to be the last chance saloon for Sarri, who has struggled to motivate his side in recent weeks.
