'Superb', 'future captain' - Manchester United midfielder impresses fans in cup win

The club faces another big test later this weekend as Solskjaer's men take on Liverpool in the Premier League.

Gonzalo Higuain completed 90 minutes in the defeat to Manchester United on Monday night - and numerous Chelsea fans on Twitter were critical of the striker.

The Stamford Bridge fans made no secret of their feelings towards beleaguered boss Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea crashed out of the FA Cup at home against Manchester United on Monday night.

'The players do not completely grasp my style of play at the moment.

On Monday, Chelsea supporters joined in with Manchester United fans' chants of "Getting Sacked in the Morning".

"We need of course more aggression, more determination in the situation inside our box and inside the opposing box".

Despite a 6-0 loss to Manchester City in their previous league encounter, Chelsea were marginal favorites going into the game owing to home comfort and United's injury list.


Chelsea do have some capable players, and if they perform to the best of their abilities, like they did at Stamford Bridge against Manchester City earlier in the season, then there's no reason why Sarri's side can beat the Sky Blues at Wembley.

It is all a far cry from Sarri's record-breaking start when he became the first new manager to go unbeaten in his first 12 Premier League games in charge.

It is understood recent results have caused disappointment within the club, but the manager and players are believed to be preparing for the next game.

Maurizio Sarri has lost a portion of the Chelsea dressing room, who feel the Italian's "overburdening" the squad with excessive tactical information.

"We've got to build on the positives".

Sarri is said to be perfectly likeable but defeat in Sunday's Carabao Cup final could cost him his job less than a year into life in west London.
