Chelsea crashed out of the FA Cup on Monday evening at Stamford Bridge after a 2-0 loss to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United.

Chelsea’s poor form under Sarri has seen the Blues drop to sixth in the Premier League.

Sarri now faces a decisive set of fixtures, with Chelsea hosting Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday night before taking on Manchester City in the League Cup final – just a few weeks after Pep Guardiola’s side thrashed the Blues 6-0 in the Premier League and he believes he can turn things around.

“It’s really very easy (to change the mood),” Sarri said.

“If we are able to win three or four matches in a row, it will be really very easy. It’s difficult to win five matches in a row.”

Chelsea fans turned on Sarri during the loss to Manchester United with chants of F*** Sarri-ball and “You don’t know what you’re doing” but Sarri insists he isn’t worried about the growing backlash from the fans.

When asked if he was worried about the fans’ negative reaction during the game, Sarri replied: “No, I am worried about the results. Not about the fans.

“I can understand the situation and our fans, because the result wasn’t really good.

“We are out of the FA Cup, so I can understand our fans. But I am worried at the moment about our results.”
