After a turbulent end to the Antonio Conte era at Chelsea, hopes were high that Sarri's arrival - and his high-pace, high-pressure "Sarri-Ball" playing style - would be a good fit for the Premier League giants.

Although the former Blue's man still backs the current boss, Swain reflected on some of the Italian's decisions in last nights game including his shun of youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi.

After defeat at Arsenal last month, Sarri said his players were "difficult to motivate". "For everything, there is a first time".

"I am anxious about the result not our fans", he said. Not about the fans. "Of course, I can understand the situation and the fans because the result is not good and we are out of the FA Cup, but for now I am anxious about our results". We are out of the FA Cup so I can understand [the reaction]. "But I am anxious about our results".

Whether Sarri sees out the run of fixtures remains to be seen.

However, India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy. The Pakistani delegation is led by the Attorney General, Anwar Mansoor Khan, with Khawar Qureshi as counsel.

But Nevin feels the low expectations from fans after the defeat to Manchester United could work in Chelsea's favour during their games against Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the coming weeks. The Italian clung to the positives. City have won it five times, and Wolves have four titles.

"I was only anxious about my position when I was in League 2 in Italy, not now".

It was a performance that failed to go unnoticed by Solskjaer following the cup tie at Stamford Bridge, with the United boss singling Herrera out post-match to acknowledge the midfielder's efforts both in the game against the Blues, and throughout his 13-game tenure. There's a balance between being too eager after losing a game, so this was brilliant. "This was about getting through to the next round".

City and Swansea City have never met before in the FA Cup.

The Red Devils, who secured a 2-0 road win, join the field of eight that consists of Wolverhampton, Millwall, Crystal Palace, Manchester City, Swansea City, Watford and Brighton.
