Sir Alex Ferguson storms Stamford Bridge to congratulate Man United players

After a turbulent end to the Antonio Conte era at Chelsea, hopes were high that Sarri's arrival - and his high-pace, high-pressure "Sarri-Ball" playing style - would be a good fit for the Premier League giants.

Maurizio Sarri insists he isn't anxious about being sacked as Chelsea manager despite his troubled side's lacklustre FA Cup surrender against Manchester United.

Maurizio Sarri's men were handed their fifth defeat in all competitions following the turn of the year by Manchester United in their fifth round FA Cup clash at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

The Red Devils headed into the game looking to gain revenge on Chelsea FC, after having lost last season's final to the Blues at Wembley back in May.

The ex-bank manager labelled his side's football "confusing" after falling to Ole Solskjaer's side, calling for "more aggression and more determination" from his players.

Despite a 6-0 loss to Manchester City in their previous league encounter, Chelsea were marginal favorites going into the game owing to home comfort and United's injury list. The Arsenal manager first in the league.

With Chelsea now down to sixth in the Premier League, former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton, commentating on the game on Monday, believes the club's managerial revolving door will soon be depositing Sarri out on the pavement. "Would the owner fancy getting into the top four with recent performances, with a manager who says he can't motivate his players?"

After Thursday's Europa League second leg, Chelsea face Manchester City again, in the EFL Cup final on Sunday.

Chelsea had legitimate shouts for a booking on Nemanja Matic - already on a yellow card - waved off early in the second half after the midfielder's late, sloppy challenge brought N'Golo Kante down.
