Maurizio Sarri will remain at Chelsea for the foreseeable future, according to a report from Sam Cunningham of i News

The Italian’s future at Stamford Bridge came under scrutiny following the team’s humiliating 6-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League. 

Chelsea’s loss at the Etihad Stadium saw them slump to sixth place on the table, with their goal difference now lower than Arsenal, who moved up a spot following their 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town.

Sarri has seen his Blues side display inconsistency throughout the campaign after a strong start to life in English football. 

The ex-Napoli boss’ time at Chelsea appeared to be approaching its conclusion after Pep Guardiola’s City side destroyed the team, but recent reports have since suggested that he will have more time to prove himself. 

Chelsea’s next fixture comes on Thursday as they look to defeat Malmo in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie.
