Chelsea slumped to yet another defeat; their fifth in their last 11 matches.
The opposition this time was Manchester United, who ended up knocking out Chelsea out of the FA Cup. One of the worst performers on the night, was yet again Pedro. Offering very little on the ball, he was given yet another undeserved start by Sarri who is now getting bullish about his methods.
Here is the Spaniard’s take on the match.
‘It’s a pity because it was a good opportunity for us to continue in this competition,’ he said.
‘It was a very bad day for us, for all the team. It’s a difficult situation. In the first half we played very well, we created chances to score one goal, but they had two situations and scored two goals.
‘The most important thing was to do a good job creating chances with the ball in the second half, but we couldn’t do it and for this reason it was so difficult for us to come back.’
‘There is an important game in the Europa League for us, and after the final against City. The most important thing now is to stay calm, train really hard and recover our best football and our best feeling, because if not we are in trouble.’
