Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton believes the club are set to replace the Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri after their humiliating Monday night FA cup defeat to Manchester United at the Stanford Bridge.
Chelsea has now had three losses in their last five games in all competitions. There defeat at the Bridge now means Chelsea has has been eliminated from the competition as Manchester United progress to the Quarter finals.
Chris Sutton believes Maurizio Sarri’s time at Chelsea is “done” following the club’s elimination from the FA cup.
Chelsea have a history of quick dismissals, this may also be Sarri’s faith.
The Blues have had 11 managers over the last decade, with Antonio Conte lasting just two seasons before he was shown exit from the London club.
Sarri was only appointed as the club’s manager back in July 2018, and is contracted to remain in charge until 2021.
He is still yet to win a trophy as a manager, with this weekend’s Carabao Cup potentially his first ever silverware.
And things don’t look like they will be getting any easier with the fixture as Chelsea where given the waste defeat of the Club the last time the two clubs met, at the Premier League this season, Manchester city trashed them a whooping 6 goals to nothing.
Despite a decent start to the campaign, poor results have intensified the speculation regarding Sarri’s long-term future at the club and Sutton believes the Italian will be next on the list of sacked managers.
Chelsea now seat at the 6th position of the Premier League, despite a decent start to the campaign.
“This is Maurizio Sarri’s last game at Chelsea. The Italian job is over for them,” Sutton told BBC 5 Live. “He’s done. Sarri-ball is broken.
“History tells us the Chelsea owner doesn’t mess about.”
Chelsea face city on Saturday at Wembley and then Spurs on February 27 before a trip to Craven Cottage to play Fulham on March 3.
