Chelsea embarrassed by Bournemouth
Chelsea fans have started to turn on boss Maurizio Sarri following their 3-0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
Despite being considered strong title contenders early on in the season, the Blues haven’t exactly been in fine form over the past month or so.
Earlier in the month, Chelsea were unable to beat Southampton who have been struggling all season.
A hard fought win against Newcastle papered over the cracks but they were then beaten 2-0 by Arsenal.
They then scraped through to the next round of the Carabao Cup, beating Tottenham on penalties.
Though, their worst performance of the month and potentially the worst of the season came against Bournemouth on Wednesday.
The Cherries run riot over Sarri’s Blues
Going into the game, it was quite clear who the favourites were.
Chelsea travelled to the Vitality with the hope of putting some daylight between them and Arsenal.
Instead, they were torn apart by Eddie Howe’s side.
Josh King kicked off the scoring just after the half-time break, making it 1-0.
Bournemouth starlet David Brooks then added a second in the 63rd minute to compound Maurizio Sarri’s woes.
Though, it got even worse.
Josh King scored his second of the game in the 74th minute to secure all three points despite Chelsea’s possession.
Then, when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, Charlie Daniels made it 4-0 with almost the last kick of the game.
Sarri’s head on the chopping block?
Now, fans have turned on Maurizio Sarri after another poor performance.
Chelsea fans’ frustration started when Gonzalo Higuain was replaced by Olivier Giroud, a substitution that brought boos from the away fans.
Though, that wasn’t the only reason they were unhappy.
