Loads of Chelsea fans have been reacting to some comments from Maurizio Sarri, after he used Jurgen Klopp as an example for why he deserves times at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s second half performance at Bournemouth was simply embarrassing, showing no fight, passion or even just personal pride.
The Blues were swept aside by a rampant counter-attacking display, and the weak points in Sarri’s system were sorely exposed.
Which team is the dominant force in London right now? Playmaker FC’s Tom Skinner has a very unpopular opinion on the matter. Check it out in the video below…
In short, the Cherries utilised the spaces behind Jorginho when they had the ball, and “parked the bus” when their London visitors had the ball.
It was not the first time Sarri’s side have struggled against a packed defence and it probably won’t be the last, but the boss has asked for patience, per ESPN’s Liam Twomey.
Sarri points out that Klopp struggled in his first season at Liverpool. Says the PL's three best teams this season all have long-term coaches #cfc

Sarri certainly has a point, as Klopp has taken Liverpool from top four strugglers to genuine title contenders, but it did take three-and-a-half years.
While Sarri’s job should be a little easier given the quality in his squad compared to what Klopp arrived to, the former Napoli boss clearly needs time to get the Blues flowing at full pelt.

That’s exactly what I want to hear, sticking to his guns and giving two fingers up at whoever doesn’t like it. I love that! ??

There’s a sharp difference b/w struggling and being Stubborn.

Sorry but we aren’t Liverpool, we are used to winning

I gotta be honest after Bournemouth I was fuming, but on reflection we can’t grumble we are into the League cup final. We are still going strong on multiple fronts & this is sarris first season in charge. Top 4 is still entirely possible too.
