Embattled Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is reportedly set to have an urgent meeting with the club's board over his future after defeat against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.

Sarri has been under serious pressure at Stamford Bridge even before the Blues travelled to Wembley to face Manchester City and the loss has added more salt to his wound.

Before losing against Manchester City, the Blues had earlier been sent out of the English FA Cup by Manchester United who defeated Chelsea in front of their fans.

Also, Chelsea are not currently among the top four teams this season in the Premier League as they now occupy sixth position on the standings with 50 points after 26 games.
