Pressure on Sarri after Bournemouth batter Chelsea

It was directed at Maurizio Sarri, perhaps the first audible sign of disgruntlement toward the Chelsea manager six months into his tenure.

Sarri watched from the sidelines as Bournemouth scored four second half goals to condemn Chelsea to a humiliating 4-0 defeat in the Vitality Stadium in which was their worst league defeat since 1996.

In a cruel case of deja vu for Chelsea, the Blues marked the end of January with a defeat to Bournemouth for the second season in a row - having lost 3-0 at home to the Cherries at Stamford Bridge on January 31, 2018.

"You don't know what you are doing", sang Chelsea's fans when Sarri sent on Giroud as a replacement for Higuain, supposedly the answers to Chelsea's scoring problems.

According to Metro (UK), Sarri met with his players without his assistants in the dressing room for about an hour, and demanding an explanation on his players shambolic performance on the night.

Early symptoms include a fever, runny nose and malaise, followed by a rash that starts around the head and moves down the body. Washington State Health officials have confirmed there are now 42 confirmed cases of measles in Western Washington.

"The Leicester game was the first time we have seen signs of cracks from Liverpool, but this is natural as the finishing line gets closer".

'We need to improve in the reaction, the offensive phase as we have a lot of individual players, it is not easy to change. Not with that kind of reaction, so it is hard to understand why. To paraphrase Charles Monty Burns, I'm beginning to think he's not the brilliant player I thought he was.

Asked if his squad was good enough to finish in the top four, Sarri said: "I think so, maybe we are not at the top of the Premier League at the moment, but we are competitive".

After a stunning 4-0 reversal at Bournemouth, Chelsea dropped to fifth behind Arsenal on goal-difference and just two points ahead of Manchester United.

Liverpool also had a strong penalty claim waved away in the second half when Naby Keita was seemingly fouled by Ricardo Pereira. As I said before, I needed to understand.

Moscow and Washington have for years traded claims of the other party being in violation. US withdrawal raises the prospect of further deterioration in U.S.

But Sarri showed his class by facing up to the inquisition and listening to what the disgruntled fans had to say.

"I'd be astounded if Liverpool bought anyone to go straight into their first team".

The Deloitte report also confirmed that clubs in the bottom six of the standings recorded spending of 20 million pounds, compared to 90 million pounds in the same period a year ago.

Sarri has attracted criticism for deploying Eden Hazard as a striker and N'Golo Kante - so effective as a defensive midfielder - in a more attacking role.

She recalled that as she walked away "I mentally noted the kids were still loud and disrespectful". This behavior is opposed to the Church's teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.
