CHELSEA stars were hauled in for an early training session following Sunday's shocking 6-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Maurizio Sarri is clinging onto his job at Stamford Bridge after his side suffered their heaviest defeat in 28 years.

The Blues usually arrive to training at 2pm, but the stony-faced squad cruised into Cobham three hours earlier than planned for a warm down.

Sarri has no time to waste before his team fly to Sweden to face Malmo in the Europa League later this week.

Chelsea have now slumped to sixth in the Premier League table after Pep Guardiola's side ran riot at the Etihad.

Sergio Aguero bagged a hat-trick, Raheem Sterling scored twice and Ilkay Gundogan found the net to pile the pressure on Sarri.

Sarri clearly had a sour taste in his mouth after the match when he refused to shake Guardiola's hand. 

And his players looked disheartened as they rocked up to training in their fleet of incredible supercars.

After the devastating defeat to City, Sarri admitted that his job at Stamford Bridge is hanging in the balance.

When he was asked if he feared the sack, he said: "I don't know. You have to ask the club.

"I am worried about my team, I'm worried about the performance. But my job is always at risk."

And the Blues boss, who took over from Antonio Conte in July 2018, took a swipe at club owner Roman Abramovich. 

He said: "If the president calls, I'll be happy, seeing as I never hear from him."

But pundit Gary Neville believes that Chelsea sacking the 60-year-old would show the club are "weak."

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard favourite to become new boss with Sarri fighting to keep job after Man City humiliation

CHELSEA legend Frank Lampard has emerged as the early favourite to replace Maurizio Sarri.

The Italian boss, 60, admitted his job is on the line after Sunday's devastating 6-0 defeat to Manchester City.

 Frank Lampard spent 13 years playing for Chelsea throughout his career

And bookmakers have named the Derby County manager at Stamford Bridge legend as the most likely candidate to become the next permanent boss.

Zinedine Zidane, Gianfranco Zola, Diego Simeone, Brendan Rodgers and Jose Mourinho are all also in the running.

But Lampard, who spent 13 years playing for the Blues, is the favourite with 2/1 odds.

The legendary England international, 40, has made an encouraging start to his managerial career with the Rams this season.

 Sunday's defeat to Manchester City piled the pressure on Maurizio Sarri

He has guided his side to seventh in the Championship, with 14 wins and eight draws from 30 matches.

And he received a warm welcome from the home fans when he returned to Stamford Bridge with Derby earlier this season.

His side came close to causing a huge upset, but the Blues won 3-2 after two own goals and a strike from Cesc Fabregas.

Sarri fuelled speculation that his days are numbered at Chelsea after his side were thrashed at the Etihad.


Chelsea's next manager odds

  • Frank Lampard 2/1
  • Zinedine Zidane 7/1
  • Gianfranco Zola 8/1
  • Diego Simeone 12/1
  • Jose Mourinho 12/1
  • Brendan Rodgers 12/1
  • Massimiliano Allegri 12/1
  • Nuno Espirito Santo 12/1
  • Didier Deschamps 16/1
  • Luis Enrique 16/1
  • Guus Hiddink 16/1

According to oddschecker.

 Frank Lampard has achieved legendary status at Stamford Bridge

When asked if he feared the sack, he said: "I don't know. You have to ask the club.

"I am worried about my team, I'm worried about the performance. But my job is always at risk."

And he took a cheeky swipe at club owner Roman Abramovich for not getting in touch with him.

He said: "If the president calls, I'll be happy, seeing as I never hear from him. To be honest, I don't know what to expect.

"I didn't see my football. At the beginning of the season it worked. Now we need to understand the reasons why it isn't working. It is not easy."

Gilberto Silva says Torreira is not the holding midfielder Arsenal have been looking for

GILBERTO SILVA does not believe Lucas Torreira is the holding midfielder Arsenal have been crying out for.

The Gunners legend, 42, left the club in 2008 and has never truly been replaced.

Many Arsenal fans and pundits reckon Torreira is the man to be the terrier in midfield at the Emirates for years to come.

Silva, though, does not think he compares with the likes of Premier League winners N'Golo Kante and Fernandinho.

He told talkSPORT: "Arsenal in the last few years have tried to find a player for this position, which is not so easy nowadays because football has changed a lot.

"I have seen so many clubs play without this holding midfielder. At some point, it became not so important but then teams started to realise this player is important to the structure of the defensive part of the team.

"Now we have Kante - but he is out of position. I prefer him to be in the centre. At City, Fernandinho.

"Arsenal bought Torreira but the first season is quite hard for him. I don't know if Arsenal have found the player to be the holding midfielder yet.

"I don't think so, when I see their games compared to the other teams, when you compare to Fernandinho and Kante, I don't see the same style of players."

Silva was a crucial member of Arsene Wenger's teams between his arrival from Atletico Mineiro in 2002 and when he left the club for Panathinaikos six years later.

He scored 17 goals in his 170 Premier League appearances but it was his ability to break up oppositions' attacks and win the ball back that has been so sorely missed ever since.

Torreira, 23, signed last summer for £27million and has featured in all 26 league games this season.

His tenacity and energy has made him a fan favourite at the Emirates but Silva is cautious not to get carried away too quickly.
