Sarri hits out at Chelsea fans jeering Jorginho: He's very important

There are reports Sarri could be sacked unless Chelsea see off Malmo in the second leg of their Europa League last-32 tie on Thursday and also win Sunday's EFL Cup final against City.

His case wasn't helped by the Blues' exit at the hands of Manchester United in the FA Cup on Monday.

Blues fans criticised his tactics, jeered his predictable substitutions and even joined in with the visiting supporters' chorus of "you're getting sacked in the morning". Who knows, it could be HIS chance to show everyone what he can do.

Callum Hudson-Odoi also found the net with a low shot on his return to the starting line-up, securing Chelsea's place in the final 16 of the competition.

But Giannini is unhappy about the timing of the speculation and feels this will only distract Roma from their goals this season. And he might like to highlight that he has a better record at Chelsea than Pep Guardiola had in his first season at Manchester City.

"There isn't in England another 18-year-old player with 14 matches in the first-team".

Jorginho's named was booed by a section of the crowd when the substitute's name was read out before the game.

With the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on the horizon, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has made a decision to preserve some of his key players for the second leg of their UEFA Europa League Round of 32 contest against Malmo.

This is reported to have "soured" the president on Whitaker, given that Trump has made it clear he wants the investigation into him to stop.

"I think that in the first 30 minutes we understood why Jorginho is very important for our team", said Sarri.

'We can not play our football without confidence but the level of application and adaptation was good in the first 30'. I hope our fans understand Jorginho is an important player'.

It might not have been the only judgement which left Chelsea fans scratching their heads once again.

That decision almost backfired when the Croatian midfielder gave the ball away in a risky position in the opening six minutes, only for Kante to make the telling interception.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek replaced the effervescent Kante to cheers. So I'm really very happy with these three players.

Asked what Hudson-Odoi needs to do to start a Premier League game, Sarri added: "You need to understand that, in the same position, we have Pedro [Rodriguez], Willian and [Eden] Hazard".

"With Jorginho, it is easier, I think". Of course, the 20 matches this season will be 30 matches in the next, and 40 in two years.
