Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is battling to save his job after Chelsea were thrashed 4-0 at Bournemouth on Wednesday night according to Daily Mail.
The defeat at Bournemouth was Chelsea’s heaviest defeat in the Premier League for over 20 years since the Blues lost 5-1 to Liverpool in 1996.
Chelsea have now lost our last two Premier League games without scoring a goal after the 2-0 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates in our last league game before the loss at Bournemouth.
The defeat means Chelsea have now dropped out of Champions League places and Daily Mail claim a place in the Carabao Cup final might not be enough to save Sarri’s job unless results change quickly.
Chelsea fans at the Vitality Stadium turned on Maurizio Sarri during the game with a chorus of boos after the final whistle and Sarri obviously didn’t help himself by leaving Callum Hudson-Odoi out of the squad for the game against Bournemouth despite having a good game in the 3-0 FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday.
All four goals against Bournemouth were conceded in the second half.
Following the match, Sarri said: “I feel frustrated. Not under pressure. I didn’t see the signal of my work. So I am frustrated.
“Maybe it’s my fault, maybe I’m not able to motivate them. But the team is very strong, it is also able to win without the coach.”
In response to fans singing ‘you don’t know what you’re doing,’ Sarri added: “We have only to say sorry to our fans. We can lose, of course, in every match, but not in this way. We need to solve the problem. We need to understand where the problem is.”
After the game against Bournemouth, Sarri stayed in the dressing room with the players for 40 minutes. He removed the coaching staff from the room, ensuring it was just himself and his players.
Explaining his decision to have a talk with the players after the game against Bournemouth without his coaching staff, Sarri said: “In that moment I wanted to talk to them alone, without anybody. I needed to understand, it was so different in the first and second half. I want to try again tomorrow.”
