Chelsea outline conditions under which Maurizio Sarri can still keep his job

Maurizio Sarri will reportedly tell Chelsea that he wants to overhaul the current squad if he avoids the sack at Stamford Bridge.

They then face Manchester United in the FA Cup, Malmo in the second leg, City in the final of the Carabao Cup and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on February 27. Even the Italian seemed unsure in his post-match press conference, admitting his job is always at risk. All my thoughts are on Ipswich Town away on Wednesday.

Lampard also gave an update on Derby's proposed move for former Celtic centre-back Efe Ambrose, who left Hibernian in January and has since been training with the Pride Park outfit.

Following their 6-0 loss to Manchester City, Sarri stated that he "never hears" from the Chelsea owner.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Chelsea's players are reluctant to pin the blame exclusively on Sarri and recognise that they have not shown enough character during the hard period.

Lampard, Chelsea's all-time leading scorer with 211 goals, said he was focused on doing his best for Derby and backed Chelsea to bounce back quickly from the defeat, which pushed them down to sixth in the table.

"With all top teams, the important thing is that you come back strong, no matter what type of defeat".

Cesar Azpilicueta has captained the side in Cahill's absence but it is said that the Spaniard does not assume control of the team in the same manner as previous senior figures at the club such as John Terry, Frank Lampard or Didier Drogba.
