Despite Chelsea’s slump in form which have seen the Blues drop out of the top four, Maurizio Sarri still remains as Chelsea boss.
Chelsea’s poor form continued under Sarri as the Blues were dumped out of the FA Cup by Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton believes its time for Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to prove his hunger to Chelsea fans by sacking Sarri.
“The bottom line is, where are Chelsea? They are sixth in the Premier League,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“Would the owner fancy the team getting into the top four considering recent performances and having a manager who says, ‘I can’t motivate my players’ and ‘I’ll let my star man go in the summer’.
“If the owner doesn’t sack him, you would question the owner’s hunger in all this. You have to question the owner now.”
Asked if Chelsea can win the Europa League, Sutton responded: “And that is a long shot now.”
Chelsea fans booed Sarri’s substitutions during the loss to Manchester United with fans chanting “You don’t know what you’re doing.”
With the Blues set to play Manchester City in the League Cup final on Sunday, just two weeks after losing to Manchester City 6-0 in the league at the Etihad Stadium, Sutton expects Sarri to get sacked this week.
Sutton said on BBC Radio 5 live: “This is Maurizio Sarri’s last game at Chelsea.
“The Italian job is over for them. How can it last? There’s a way to lose a game.
“But they’re out without a whimper. The fans have turned on him.
“What’s positive about Sarri and Chelsea? Why risk them taking charge of a game against Manchester City? He’s done.”
