Chelsea’s Nightmare at Dean Court
Controversy for yet another season has surrounded Chelsea football club. The manager, Maurizio Sarri claims his players aren't putting in the effort which has left the team spirit in tatters. Some were led to believe that Sarri's statement would urge the players on ahead of their derby defeat against Arsenal. However, this was not the case and the midweek fixture for The Blues will be another one they want to forget.
Chelsea needs to secure as many points as possible now if they hope to be in next seasons Champions League. They can qualify if they win the Europa League, which looks their best chance as Man United & Arsenal both look promising to achieve a top 4 finish.
Upon Chelsea's arrival in Bournemouth, Sarri would've probably had this jotted down as three points. By half time the scores remained level which would quickly change when the two teams came back onto the pitch. Brooks found Joshua King on his run before the striker whacked it in the Chelsea net. This would be the beginning of a very long second half for Chelsea. Twenty minutes later, Welsh international, Brooks turned David Luiz who was tracking back and proceeded to score his sixth of the season.
By the end of the 90′ minutes, Bournemouth had doubled their 2-0 lead and humiliated Chelsea who headed back to London with their tail between their legs. Sarri could turn out to be just another name on the growing list of managers to be fired by Chelsea.
