Chelsea lost to Arsenal by a two-goal margin on Saturday and that has automatically piled pressure on Maurizio Sarri over his position as Chelsea manager.
The Italian joined the Blues barely six months ago but his place in the team is not secure after series of unwanted results.
Sarri, who was understandably furious with his players after the defeat, could be shown the exit door earlier than expected, that was Gary Neville’s opinion on the manager’s position.
According to the former Manchester United player, the Blues are not known to be patient with managers who fail to deliver, hence, the former Napoli boss risks being sacked by the end of the season.
“Sarri knows he’s going to get sacked at some point in the next 18 months or two years, that’s inevitable at Chelsea,” he said.
Chelsea’s problem lies at the final third of the pitch as Morata and Olivier Giroud have failed to shoulder their goalscoring burden.
Both players are performing below expectations and they can’t be trusted enough to lead the team to any silverware this term.
Luckily, Chelsea hierarchy have shown great determination to help the manager salvage his first season at Stamford Bridge.
They are closer to announcing Gonzalo Higuain’s signature, though, the Argentine is reportedly going to be with the team for just six months.
If reports making headlines are something to believe, the former Real Madrid man will officially become Chelsea’s newest striker on Monday(today).
Meanwhile, the defeat to Arsenal wasn’t enough to push Sarri’s team down to the fifth position but it was enough to leave them with just three points ahead of Arsenal and Manchester United who are in the fifth and sixth position respectively.
