After the 6-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League and the 2-0 home defeat to Manchester United in the F.A Cup I made my feelings perfectly clear that I felt it was the right time for Chelsea to part company with manager Maurizio Sarri. I’m not for one minute backtracking as I still feel some results and performances this season along with tactics and substitutions have been unacceptable even in a season where a new style of play is being implemented.

For me now it’s not about being ‘Sarri In’ or ‘Sarri Out’. We need to really get behind the team and all start to be more positive. Although it does feel there is much doom and gloom surrounding the club of late finishing the season in the top four isn’t out of our reach. I’ve always stated that I genuinely hope I’m proved wrong and Maurizio Sarri does become successful at Chelsea.

After the defeat to Manchester United in the F.A Cup we had a positive result against Malmo in the Europa League with a comfortable 3-0 victory at Stamford Bridge. We now enter the last 16 stage with Dynamo Kiev our next opponent.

We all went into the Carabao Cup Final against Manchester City expecting the worst and were hoping not to be embarrassed. Maurizio Sarri’s tactics and substitutions on the day were spot and to stop Manchester City from scoring for 120 minutes is a massive improvement in itself. We had chances to win the game ourselves and were unfortunate to loose on penalties. Massive positives to take from that game.

Our game against Tottenham in the league was always going to be difficult but again we were well organised and deserved our 2-0 victory with again a very positive team performance.

I must say the atmosphere at Wembley from our fans before and during the Carabao Cup Final was absolutely superb and that continued on to the Spurs game at Stamford Bridge. I expect more of the same from our fans at Fulham on Sunday. Let’s keep it going and continue to be positive in our support for our team that is trying to adapt to a different style of football.

I’m not saying for one moment that now we have beaten Malmo and Spurs and put in a good performance against Manchester City that we’re back on track but their have been significant improvements.

Going into March our next 6 games are:

Fulham (away) PL

Dynamo Kiev (home) EL

Wolves (home) PL

Dynamo Kiev (away) EL

Everton (away) PL

Cardiff (away) PL

As we well know there are no easy games but we must look to March as being vital for us and we should be looking for maximum points from the Premier League Fixtures. Away games at Manchester United and Liverpool await us in April.

Let’s continue to get behind the team and believe we can be successful in what is a rebuilding season.

Come On Chelsea!
