Manchester clubs kept apart in FA Cup draw

Sarri appeared to working with players who did not take part in the match, including Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Sir Alex has made multiple visits to United's training ground since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho last December.

And now it seems only a matter of time before the former Napoli boss is handed his exit papers and shown the Stamford Bridge door. The Red Devils went into the game without a number of their first-team players, but still managed to upset their London opponents.

What's even worse, is that he chose to replace right-back Cesar Azpilicueta with Davide Zappacosta late on.

Sarri's side will have to make a statement and it's likely that they'll be up for the game.

Sarri believes his situation will be improved significantly if Chelsea can string together a winning run, starting with the second leg of their Europa League last-32 tie against Malmo on Thursday and the League Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday.

Sarri insisted after the game that he is not concerned by the fans' anger.

I like to read good articles and a passionate football fan. Not about the fans. We are out of the FA Cup, so I can understand. I am anxious about our results.

"It [being given time by Chelsea's hierarchy] is not my problem, my problem is to work to improve in a few days, [show] more determination and aggressiveness, because we conceded the second goal without that", he said.

'Am I anxious about my job? No.

"I was only anxious about my position when I was in League 2 in Italy, not now".

'The players do not completely grasp my style of play at the moment.

"I think you've got to give the him a chance as I think he's been unlucky with the transfer windows".

Pogba was a presence throughout the match, but it was Herrera who really stood out over the course of the encounter, and was the man of the contest in the eyes of many.
