Sarri and his reluctance to change a team that continue to struggle once again resulted in a loss against Manchester United last night.
Sarri is fighting to keep his job at Chelsea after recent results but he continues to start the same team and continues to make the same predictable substitutions when trailing in the game.
Jorginho once again started in CDM where Kante should arguably be starting. The gaps in front of Chelsea’s back two opened up to allow Herrera to run straight through the middle on to the end of a Pogba cross. Alonso once again had a difficult night against Manchester United, struggled to defend effectively as he has done in recent games.
The system Sarri continues to operate is clearly not working, yet he continues to start the same group of players and make the same substitutions. If something is not working surely there is a plan B, clearly Sarri only has a plan A. Hudson-Odoi didn’t get a run out last night, and his face clearly showed he was not impressed, what has he got to do to get some game time?
It’s worrying times at Chelsea, with two crucial cup games coming up. The players don’t seem to be up for it, and the fans seem to be against Sarri now (you could hear the anti Sarri chants in the crowd). Sarri needs to find a plan B from somewhere if he wants to keep his job at Chelsea, but it’s clear he is struggling to find one.
