Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea boss has turned Blues into Arsenal – Jamie Carragher

Chelsea were thrashed 6-0 by City in their worst ever defeat in the Premier League, leaving Maurizio Sarri’s job on a thread.

The embarrassing loss saw the Blues crash to sixth on goal difference, with Manchester United and Arsenal in the ascendancy.

Sarri now comes under incredible pressure with many fans starting to turn on him and his style of football.

Antonio Conte was sacked for finishing fifth last year, despite winning the FA Cup.

And with the Stamford Bridge outfit playing as badly as they did today, reaching fifth looks like a miracle.

Sky Sports pundit Carragher was particularly scathing of Sarri, telling TV viewers that the former Napoli boss has turned the Blues into the new Arsenal.

“I’ve called Chelsea a disgrace before this season,” he said. “This is as bad as anything we’ve seen from them.

“Looking at Sarri, okay, he’s only been there half a season.

“But the worst thing I can say is he’s turned Chelsea into Arsenal.

“[The Arsenal] who got battered away from home because they were too weak. We’re watching a really weak football team here.”

Chelsea have been battered in recent weeks, most recently by Bournemouth in a shocking 4-0 defeat.

Tottenham and Arsenal have also beat the west London outfit this year.

But former Gunners ace Ray Parlour reckons Sarri should be given until the end of the season at least.

“I hate to see managers get sacked so early. Chelsea have got to give Sarri until the end of the season and then assess the situation,” he said.

“If they come sixth or fifth, then maybe it’s not good enough and Sarri knows that.

“Every manager is looking over their shoulder, a couple of bad results and then you’re out the door.

“Chelsea are still playing for big, big trophies. There’s so much to play for, and you’ll be looking who has won the trophies too.”
