Watch the Chelsea fans revolt against their own manager by chanting “F**k Sarri Ball, F**k Sarri Ball” while they were losing 2-0 to Manchester United.
Chelsea cannot search for any positivity from that horror show against Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round which resulted in a 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were thoroughly dominant from minute one to gain a fantastic result away from home to qualify for the next round.

Chelsea’s fans chanted ‘f*** Sarri-ball’ but the players cannot be let off the hook in the Stamford Bridge blame game. Too many seem worried about themselves, rather than the club #cfc https://t.co/YVu9xCxOku

After some time when Manchester United fans were chanting “You’re getting sacked in the morning”, Chelsea fans joined to chant the same and made their feelings known. Besides, the home crowd chanted “Bring back Mourinho” when the away supporters made fun of the former Manchester United manager.
Manchester United fans sing “you’re getting sacked in the morning” in Sarri’s direction – and Chelsea fans join in noisily. Now “Bring Back Mourinho”…very cruel.

It is quite surprising to see how the Chelsea fans reacted to the chants of Manchester United fans rather than protecting their club. Sarri says he understands the frustrations of the fans and says that the performance was not good enough on Monday night.
“I think with the result we were unlucky because in the first half we played better than the opponent and at the end of the first half it was 2-0,”
“In the second half it was really very difficult to play. They are a very physical team and defended low and compact. We played confusing football in the second half but in the first half we played well.
“We need to be more aggressive and determined with situations in our box and the opposition box because the difference was there. We played 78 balls in the opposing box and United played only 16 in ours, but the result was 2-0, so that was the difference.”
“I’m worried about the results, not the fans. Of course I can understand the situation and I can understand our fans because the result wasn’t good and we are out of the FA Cup, but I’m worried at the moment about our results.
“It’s very easy (to create a more positive feeling). If we are able to win three or four matches in a row it will be very easy. It’s difficult to win five matches in a row.” said Sarri.
On the other hand, the Red Devils have responded in a great fashion following their defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League Round of 16. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with the performance as they prepare to face Liverpool in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
