By half time, you would think Chelsea would return on the turf with Sarri’s instruction on how to break the Cherries. Unfortunately they instead walked straight into Eddie Howe trap.
At 63 mins, the score board was reading 3-0 in favour of the hosts, a margin that was least expected. What was a walkover match on paper was not close to a battle field for Chelsea because they were overrun.
A double from Joshua King, and two others from David Brook and Charlie Daniels mounted new pressure levels on Sarri’s shoulders who is rigged to one system from the start of the season.
It’s believed Sarri stayed longer in the dressing room with his players without the backroom staff to try and understand what went wrong with the game plan.
While addressing the media he said “We played not as a team but as individual players. It is very difficult for me to understand why. I wanted to try to understand after the match, but it’s very difficult also for them to say why. So I have to try again tomorrow because I need to understand why, because I need to solve this problem.”.
Unconfirmed reports suggest the squad is not satisfied with his methods and one of the dailies reported that the manager had an outburst with his captain Azplicueta.
Chelsea now level points with Arsenal but seat 5th after conceding 4-0 to Bournemouth.
