Maurizio Sarri traveled back from Chelsea's humiliation at Bournemouth alone

The current situation is clearly having an impact on Sarri's reputation as a manager and he is now the bookmakers' second-favourite - behind Leicester's Claude Puel - to be the next Premier League manager sacked.

Prior to that substitution, some Chelsea fans sang "You don't know what you're doing" as Sarri withdrew Gonzalo Higuain after 65 minutes of his Premier League debut. Charlie Daniels completed the rout in stoppage time.

No wonder Sarri said recently, after a 2-0 loss at Arsenal, that Hazard is not a natural leader.

After the latest setback, he locked them in the changing room for almost an hour, having told the rest of the coaching staff, including Chelsea great Gianfranco Zola, to leave.

The initial optimism that surrounded Sarri's arrival as Antonio Conte's replacement last summer and saw Chelsea start the season with a twelve-match unbeaten run has dissipated in the wake of a return of 19 points from their past twelve outings. Newcastle - who trailed to a Sergio Aguero goal inside just 24 seconds - were matched at a high of [150.0] in-play to win the game but second half goals from Salomon Rondon and Matt Richie sealed a famous victory.

Maurizio Sarri has suggested Chelsea's 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth might have been because he can not motivate his players. "We need to play with a different mentality".

Maurizio Sarri believes that Eden Hazard should be allowed to leave Chelsea FC if he wants to this summer.

The move baffled supporters, many of whom were hoping to see him build on the goal he scored against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend. I hope he wants to stay here with us and improve.

The youngster was left out of the squad for Wednesday's 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Bournemouth, but Bayern boss Niko Kovac has essentially ruled out the possibility of pushing through a deal this month.

"Maybe it is my fault that I am not able to motivate them".
