Chelsea were hammered this weekend as they succumbed to a 6-0 mauling at the hands of title contenders Manchester City.

The Blues were blown away in an opening 25 minute period which saw the home side go 4-0 up, and could do little to prevent the score being racked up further in the second half either.

It was a timely reminder to onlookers that things are not going well for Sarri at the Bridge, and following a 4-0 humbling at the hands of Bournemouth a few weeks back, we here in the Tavern feel there are a few players who Sarri should be looking to get rid of.

With that, we took a look at the Chelsea squad and the performance today, and picked out THREE players we feel the Blues need to move on quickly and bring in replacements for in order to move forward as a club…


Shambolic today at times, Luiz has never really covered himself in glory throughout his time with the club.

Mistake prone and often out of position, Chelsea need a proper centre half who can dominate much like John Terry did in years gone by. Luiz unfortunately, is anything but a John Terry.


It’s amazing really but Sarri insists on playing the Italian midfielder while trying to utilise Ngolo Kante in a more advanced position.

It’s clear as day for all to see – other than Sarri it seems – that Kante needs to in his holding midfield role, meaning there can be no room for the former Napoli man if that move happens.


What has happened to a left wing-back who was once regarded as the best in the Premier League?

The Spaniard appears disinterested and looks to have his mind elsewhere. For all his talent, Alonso should be sold on by the Blues with a replacement sought in the summer.
