It may have taken nearly two years, but Chelsea fans finally have the quality striker that they have been waiting on since the departure of Diego Costa in 2017.

Chelsea saw themselves humiliated 6-0 against Manchester City which made move to sixth on the log and their plans of returning to the Champions League now have a big question mark.

Despite a run of six defeats in 14 league games, an excellent start to Sarri's reign means Chelsea are just one point behind a surging Manchester United - who have shown the impact a new manager can make - in the battle for a top-four finish. "But let's not forget they were up against a great Manchester City team - and I also had some good times there as a player".

The former Leicester midfielder has proven himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but under Sarri has been used in a more advanced role because Jorginho, who arrived from Napoli in the summer, is a key cog in the manager's fast-paced possession-based system, sometimes known as "Sarrismo".

'You have to ask the club, ' Sarri said amid growing calls for his removal after a fourth defeat in eight games. At the beginning [of the season] it worked.

While Tottenham are still outsiders to win their first English title since 1961, their ability to stay in contention, despite injuries to key players Harry Kane and Dele Alli suggests they shouldn't be completely written off. So now we need only to understand the reasons why at the moment it isn't working.

Omar doubled down on her notion that Jews pay lawmakers to be pro-Israel and tweeted that " AIPAC " is an example. Republicans and Democrats alike said the tweets stoked anti-Semitic tropes about Jews and money.

Chelsea are reportedly considering appointing Gianfranco Zola as their manager until the end of the season. "It needs time, it only depends on the belief of the owners and the people in charge".

The Russian has been absent from games this season, and Sarri revealed after the chastening defeat to City that he "never" speaks to his boss.

The Spaniard said: "I know exactly what he wants to do".

"He looks totally out of the role he played last season".

City have now scored 33 goals in their last five home games in all competitions and have a chance of lifting their first silverware of the season when they face Chelsea again at Wembley in the League Cup final on February 24.
