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
 After Chelsea were thumped 6-0 against Man City odds were slashed on Sarri getting the sack

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.
