Maurizio Sarri is playing a dangerous game at Chelsea, challenging his players and the board with his refusal to change his tactics.

A 6-0 thrashing away at Manchester City on Sunday afternoon ramped up the pressure on the Italian, with the former Napoli boss running out of time in London.

The players looked distant and unresponsive against the Premier League champions, with Pep Guardiola’s side finding it far too easy to cut through Chelsea like a knife through butter.

The result has raised serious questions about Sarri’s long-term future at Chelsea and if he’ll even manage to see out the season.

From tactics to potential replacements, we’ve taken a closer look at what could happen at Stamford Bridge if the Italian were to leave his post in the near future.
