GARY NEVILLE has urged Chelsea not to sack manager Maurizio Sarri and instead “live through the pain and change”.

Chelsea were thumped 6-0 against champions Manchester City yesterday conceding four in the opening 25 minutes.

 Ex-Man United full-back Gary Neville believes Chelsea should keep Sarri in an attempt to build consistency

The devastating loss meant Arsenal leapfrogged above the Blues on goal difference as Sarri’s men sunk to sixth.

After the embarrassing loss odds were slashed on Sarri becoming the latest Blues boss to be prematurally axed.

However, Sky Sports pundit and eight-time Premier League winner Neville believes sacking Sarri would be “weak” of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Neville said: “If the ownership of the club really do want a higher quality of football then they’re going to have to live through the change.

“Now’s not the time to go weak on that. Now what we’ll see in the next 24 to 48 hours whether Chelsea have the belief that they do want to follow through with it.

“In the past I agree, they’ve changed [Andre] Villas-Boas, they’ve changed [Luiz Felipe] Scolari. Are they going to stick with Sarri?

“If they really want this type of football in the long term they’re going to have to maintain a position of the club and live through the pain and change.

“It’s never been what they’ve done before but it’s how intent are they on seeing that style change.

“If they’re intent on that style of football changing, they’re going to have to maintain a manager and not go back to something that’s happened before.

“You talk about Roman Abramovich being motivated by Pep Guardiola’s style of play, which is 75 to 80 per cent possession. Chelsea have never been like that.”

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reassures Fred over exclusion

Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has attempted to reassure Fred that he remains part of his first-team plans at Old Trafford.

Fred left Shakhtar Donetsk for United in a £52m deal during the summer, but the Brazil international has struggled to make an impact and has been reduced to 15 appearances in all competitions.

The 25-year-old did not featured in Solskjaer's 18-man squad for the game at Fulham last weekend, but the Norwegian has insisted that the player will be provided with opportunities before the end of the campaign.

Solskjaer is quoted by Manchester Evening News as saying: "Fred is exactly like everyone else. You know he's going to be able to contribute and he will contribute, don't worry about that."

United face Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Liverpool - all in different competitions - in their next three fixtures.

Inter Milan 'reject chance to sign Mesut Ozil'

Inter Milan have reportedly told Arsenal that they have no interest in signing midfielder Mesut Ozil.

Arsenal handed Ozil a new long-term contract 12 months ago, but the playmaker has failed to make an impact since the arrival of Unai Emery.

The Gunners are allegedly keen to part ways with the German, but his £350,000-per-week wages are proving to be a major stumbling block in their efforts to sell the 30-year-old.

According to Calciomercato, Inter Milan have been provided with the chance to sign Ozil for little-to-no transfer fee and with Arsenal paying a portion of the player's wages.

However, the report claims that Inter will not entertain the possibility of adding Ozil to their first-team squad at the end of the season.
