Maurizio Sarri says he is yet to hear from Chelsea owner after humiliation at the Etihad

Chelsea suffered their worst defeat in over 25 years as they were thrashed and humiliated 6-0 by a relentless Manchester City side at the Etihad stadium on Sunday.

Owing to the nature and the magnitude of the defeat, Chelsea dropped as low as the 6th position within a span of 2 days. Going into the weekend fixtures, the Blues were 4th in the table with 50 points. However, they have now dropped behind Manchester United who won at Fulham 3-0 to take their tally to 51 points. They have also dropped below city rivals Arsenal, who have the same number of points as the Blues but edge ahead, courtesy of a superior head to head record.

It is a well known fact the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich isn’t the most patient man around when it comes to demanding results from Chelsea managers. There have been a lot of rumors that Maurizio Sarri, who is in his first season at the Stamford Bridge might face the axe before the end of the season. However, Maurizio Sarri insisted that he hasn’t yet spoken to Abramovich since their 6-0 humiliation at the Etihad stadium,

Not in this week. It depends on the president. It’s not never, not very often. Not never”

He also added that he is in communication with director Marina Granovskaia,

“I would like to speak to someone of the club, not necessarily the owner. I speak to Marina and for me that is enough.”

Up next, the Blues travel to Sweden to take on Malmo in the first leg of their Europa league tie. Sarri added that things haven’t been easy after the defeat on Sunday,

“Not too easy of course. After a match like in Manchester it is normal.It is not easy to play tomorrow after 6-0, we want to play well and win. It will not be really very easy. They are compact and solid and have a good defensive phase. We want to win.”

Author’s Take

Chelsea’s away form has been disastrous over the last month or so as they are without a win in the last 5 games. That needs to change tonight as Sarri’s job is very much on the line.
