Petit also believes Sarri could be axed if the Blues' next result is a bad one Former Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit has compared the Blues’ current situation under Maurizio Sarri with the ‘dark times’ the club went through prior to the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Sarri has shown over the past couple of months that the pressure of being in charge of the Stamford Bridge club may be getting to him, and Petit believes the former Napoli boss is ‘losing the plot’ – much in the same way Mourinho did before his second spell as Chelsea manager came to an end with his December 2015 sacking Speaking to, Petit said: “I understand that a manager has to stick with his views and opinions, even sometimes against his own players’ thinking – because maybe he’s right – but I’m sure that Sarri is very nervous.

Chelsea dropped out the Premier League top four at the weekend with Sunday’s 6-0 defeat by Manchester City – the Blues’ biggest loss in 28 years – their fourth away defeat in a row.

“He did it with Jose Mourinho and he did it with Antonio Conte after winning the Premier League, so he will have no emotion about doing the same with Sarri.

“It reminds me a bit of the dark times under Jose Mourinho.” Chelsea have a tough run of fixtures coming up with two clashes against Malmo in the Europa League either side of next Monday’s FA Cup fifth-round tie with Manchester United.

“Should Sarri be sacked right now?

So, I think he’s in big trouble mentally, and he’s in big trouble when it comes to showing his players he’s still the right man.
