The coming month will be decisive for Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri’s further fate.

The Blues in a humiliating manner lost to Manchester City with a 6:0 score last Sunday, having suffered their hardest defeat since 1991. Plus, Chelsea lost their place in top four, dropping to the Premier League’s sixth place.

According to the authoritative edition of The Guardian, the bosses of the club from Stamford Bridge aren’t going to make hasty decisions regarding Sarri. Maurizio will get his opportunity to rectify the situation, but he doesn’t have much time.

Chelsea bosses expect the team to beat Malmo in the UEFA Europa League round of 16 and continue the fight with Arsenal and Manchester United for the Premier League’s fourth place. The loss of chances for participating in the next Champions League round will be unacceptable for the Blues’ management.

Over the next month, the London team will play against Manchester United in the 5th round of the FA Cup, and against Manchester City in the League Cup final, and also fight with Tottenham in the Premier League’s North London derby. These matches will help the club’s management to determine whether Sarri retains control of the team or is it time for a change.
