Maurizio Sarri's Actions Against Malmo Prove He's Lost His Way

Maurizio Sarri has seen his side be embarrassed by Bournemouth, Manchester City and Manchester United in recent weeks and against Malmo his actions suggested the pressure is really getting to him.

There's no way anyone could have expected what would happen to Chelsea in recent weeks back when they were unbeaten in November and keeping pace at the top of the Premier League table with Liverpool and Manchester City.

In the last couple of weeks though the Blues have lost 4-0 to Bournemouth, followed that up with a 6-0 loss to league leaders City and then were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United, at Stamford Bridge.

Manager Maurizio Sarri has come in for loads of criticism from his insistence on playing only one way, to the predictability of his substitutions and the lack of game time for the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Things did improve for Chelsea in the second half with Olivier Giroud's goal before the hour mark giving them a 3-1 advantage on aggregate and meant they were almost certainly through to the next round.

Worryingly for the former Napoli boss is that on Sunday they face City once again in the Carabao Cup final. A win would make things a hell of a lot better but Blues' fans will be worried about a repeat of the pairs recent league game.
