Shouldn't that be "if" he finds a solution, then what happens if he don't?

If he stays stubborn and persistent in playing the very same 11-man lineup in PL he was using for months now, then I believe people will call taxi for him maybe even before New Year’s Eve. There’s no way Sarri’s favorite 11-man team will survive January.

With what we have in the squad, I would rather see a change in CM, left back and just get rid of the RW in favor of a 4-3-1-2 formation, letting Eden move around freely behind Morata and Giroud --even letting Morata slide around because clearly he is total shit as a CF in the Premier League.  Play either Kovacic, Barkley, or RLC or TWO of them with Kante in CM.  

I completely disregarded the transfer of Jorginho in the summer because even though he's a pretty good passer, I knew he lacked speed and strength. All dubious that it will ever work well with him as a deep CM.  Seems dumb to me, but we will see how it turns out in months to come. Need some new striker(s) and different winger(s) in the lineup/bench to make the system work as Sarri imagines it.

Just seems like our side is going to be reduced to passing the ball between, CBs, Jorginho, Hazard and back again for 70% possession and rarely finishing for the rest of the season unless some things are changed.

It is kind of refreshing not to have any expectations regarding my team. At all :D I totally expect them to win so anything positive for us would be a bonus. Sadly.

Our two main wide men hold the ball too long. A main striker that can't hit a barn door. 1 good defensive fullback and one slow and cumbersome one. Midfield is alright at times, overrun at other points. Players need to go back to what they were doing at the start of the season. 

I'll watch the match but fear I'll go to bed pissed off again, but KTBFFH. Even if we win it will be more relif than joy as we should have won against wolves so it wouldn't matter too much if we lost to city. We could have gone into the game relaxed a bit, anything other than a loss will just be a bonus. Now it's a matter of must win or find ourselves having a real battle for top four. We are turning into Arsenal.

I don't mind a loss, I just hope the players show the right attitude to fight. What happened in Spurs games mustn't happen again

If true, he's sending a strong message to the board. New striker is a must in JANUARY

Sarri going the Conte route of playing without a striker against them. Fear it won't work.

Chelsea manager sending a message to the board with his first 11 selection. I have seen this movie before.
