Maurizio Sarri now odds-on to be the next Premier League manager to leave after Manchester City thrashing

Sunday really was a huge low in the recent history of Chelsea Football Club, as the team were completely embarrassed at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City were outstanding on the afternoon, romping to a 6-0 victory a week after defeating Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League, with Sergio Aguero netting hat-tricks in both matches.

Chelsea were woeful from the start of the match, finding themselves 4-0 down inside the first 25 minutes and it adds further pressure onto the shoulders of manager Maurizio Sarri, who has been under increasing scrutiny in recent weeks.

Sarri perhaps showed how much the pressure was getting to him after snubbing Pep Guardiola’s attempt of a handshake at full-time and has already played his trump card of publicly calling out his players earlier in the season.

‘The new Arsenal’

Jamie Carragher was scathing of his assessment of the team, saying: “It’s only halfway through Sarri’s first season but the worst thing I can say is it looks like he has turned Chelsea into Arsenal.

“The Arsenal team that has got battered away from home in the last seven or eight years because they have been too weak. You couldn’t say that about Chelsea in the past, but this looks like a weak team.”

For a team that once was filled with big characters and leaders in John Terry, Frank Lampard, Petr Cech and Didier Drogba, there is plenty of validity in Carragher’s comments, with Sarri’s team looking extremely soft-centered.

Arsene Wenger Arsenal Premier League

After such a terrible performance, Sarri is now priced at 5/4 with SkyBet to be the next Premier League manager to leave their job, while Unibet and BetVictor have him at 4/5. Paddy Power and Betfair have priced the Italian at 5/6 in the aftermath of the 6-0 loss, having been as far out as 14/1 with SkyBet at the beginning of the weekend.

Chelsea’s history of chopping and changing managers certainly don’t help Sarri’s case, while the team have now lost their last two Premier League away games with an aggregate score of 10-0 to both Bournemouth and Man City.

Taking the spotlight off Silva, Puel

For many weeks the two outright favourites to be sacked were Everton’s Marco Silva and Leicester’s Claude Puel, both of whom were also on the receiving end of defeats at the weekend to Watford and Tottenham respectively.

Both managers have also been under intense scrutiny after disappointing seasons and recent runs of form, leaving both clubs looking set for finishes outside of the top half of the table.

Silva is currently best-priced at 16/5 with Betfair and BetVictor to be the next Premier League manager gone after losing against his former club at the weekend, though that price has risen from 11/8 which was the starting price on Sunday morning.

As for Puel, he can now be backed at 6/1 with SkyBet after what was an encouraging performance from his Leicester team at Wembley, despite their 3-1 defeat. The Foxes created plenty of opportunities on the afternoon but were wasteful in front of goal, making Jamie Vardy’s omission from the starting XI all the more glaring.
