Chelsea struggle with the long term and time looks nearly up for Sarri

There are basic defensive issues resulting directly from Jorginho’s presence: the second, third and fourth goals on Sunday stemmed from a void at the top of the box, something highlighted by arguably the best defensive midfielder in the league over the past three seasons, N’Golo Kanté,being on the pitch but not playing as a defensive midfielder.

Is there even a long-term plan at Chelsea? Chelsea’s worst defeat in 28 years cannot but lead to serious questions and all precedent suggests those inquiries will end with the departure of the manager, Maurizio Sarri.
