EPL: Sarri mocks Arsenal’s season, defends his Chelsea record

Maurizio Sarri




Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has taken a swipe at Arsenal while defending his record in charge of the Blues, and believes he is being unfairly criticised compared to Unai Emery.



Sarri watched on as Chelsea beat Malmo 3-0 in the Europa League last 32 to progress to the next round.

His team have however struggled on the domestic front, knocked out of the FA Cup and hammered 6-0 at the Etihad.


Sarri faces mounting pressure at Stamford Bridge amid speculation he could be sacked, but he is bewildered by why he faces so much more scrutiny than his Arsenal counterpart.

Asked by Sky Sport Italia if he was one defeat away from sack, Sarri responded: “I am not interested, to be honest.

“I have to think of my work as a big picture issue, otherwise I’d do my work badly. So I continue along my path and nothing has changed, as far as I am concerned.


“I keep hearing people praise Arsenal’s season, but they are not in the Cup Final, they have fewer points than us in the Premier League and reached the last 16 of the Europa League just like us.

“I don’t understand why people act as if our season is so negative and Arsenal’s is impressive.

“It’s true there have been many peaks and troughs, including some very deep troughs, but considering it’s my first season in a new league and environment, I think that’s acceptable.
