Maurizio Sarri future

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri watches on during the Premier League clash with Newcastle on February 2, 2019

The future of Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has come under scrutiny following a sharp downturn in results.

The Italian began his reign with an 18-match unbeaten streak, but serious questions over his rigid 'Sarri-ball' tactics have since surfaced.

A 6-0 defeat to Manchester City on February 10 - which came just 11 days after losing 4-0 at Bournemouth - saw him become favourite to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job.

Sarri retained his position until the end of the 2018-19 campaign, but it remains to be seen whether he will still be in charge by the time the new season begins.
