EPL: Higuain ready to dump Chelsea with Sarri's future in doubt

Yet the board, too, was left dismayed by the recent humiliating losses at Bournemouth and City, the latter Chelsea's worst of the Premier League era, and is seeking evidence of pragmatism in the short-term as the team target Champions League qualification.

Sarri has been accused of stubbornness when it comes to his "Sarriball" system.

Chelsea fielded an experienced XI against Malmo and with two away goals to their name they have the chance to rest players in the return leg on Thursday, rather than in the encounter with United.

The Ligue 1 champions are said to hold a long-standing interest in the World Cup victor and could be set to take advantage of his current position at Chelsea by making a fresh move to bring the 27-year-old to the Parc des Princes.

The Sunday Express claim, however, that victories in the crunch games will only delay Sarri's departure.

Those fears have proven justified, with Chelsea's players struggling to adapt to "Sarri-ball" and many complaining about their manager's complex and confusing tactical instructions and extra training sessions.

That is because Roman Abramovich's right-hand woman Marina Granovskaia will make the recommendation that Sarri is given the boot.

The Hokies will also play games at home and on the road against Georgia Tech , UNC, N.C. The four home-only games will come against Duke , Clemson , NC State and Notre Dame .

"Ultimately at the moment him (Jorginho) and others are not doing what they should do", the ESPN pundit said.

"We adjust without changing where we want to go".

The Blues will battle the Citizens again in the Carabao Cup final on February 24, and one Chelsea star player told his agent this week that Sarri that is on the verge of being sacked that the game.

Sarri suggested after the heavy defeat at the Etihad Stadium last weekend that he had never spoken to Abramovich. It depends on the president.

"The interview was in Italian, I am better than you at this". I am spoken to him, not this week.

The Blues do not have a very long injury list and the players who are now sidelined are not too important to Sarri's plans anyway.
