Luiz: We have faith in Sarri's methods
Chelsea defender David Luiz has affirmed that every player is in support of under-fire manager Maurizio Sarri.
Chelsea were handed their worst defeat in 28 years by Manchester City with a 6-0 loss putting Sarris tenure at Stamford Bridge under renewed criticism. Chelsea had gone down to Bournemouth with a 4-0 loss before thumping Huddersfield Town 5-0 at Stamford Bridge. It has been a new year and fluctuating results for the Blues and Luiz has said that no member of the team is in a question of the manager's tactics.
"We have had many meetings already asking if someone doesn't believe. They can say. Nobody said anything. It's because everyone believes [in it]." Luiz told Sky Sports.
"We lost against maybe the best team in the world at the moment in Manchester City. They were better than us from the beginning to the end. We lost a few matches because it is part of the process. The teams that are at the top of the table now are ones with managers who have been there for more than three years. There is a big difference when you have already understood everything, it is much easier to play football. I think we are in the right way to still improve to become a fantastic team." Luiz added.
Chelsea won their first leg Europa League clash against Malmo and will host Manchester United on Monday for FA Cup fifth-round tie. On February 24th, they will play Man City at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final.
