Sarri 'needs City revenge, or...'

Maurizio Sarri reportedly faces the sack if Chelsea lose to Manchester City in the EFL Cup Final on Sunday.

According to the Guardian, Sarri will be in charge for Chelsea’s Europa League last-32 second leg against Malmo on Thursday.

The Blues lead Malmo 2-1 with two away goals in the tie, but the newspaper warns another defeat to City ‘could lead to his dismissal’.

Chelsea were thrashed 6-0 by Pep Guardiola’s side earlier in February, and their FA Cup exit to Manchester United on Monday was marred by chants demanding ‘Sarri-ball’ to go.

A decision over the former Napoli Coach’s future would be made by owner Roman Abramovich, despite the Russian not attending a single game this season.
