Maurizio Sarri Reportedly Has One Month To Save Job

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

Chelsea have a temporary reprieve from the Premier League in that period, due to the quirk of the League Cup final against City falling on a weekend of league fixtures. Even the Italian seemed unsure in his post-match press conference, admitting his job is always at risk.

As a former Chelsea legend who moved into management last summer, Lampard will inevitably be linked with the post whenever it becomes available, but he insists he is focused on the job in hand at Pride Park.

Aguero scored his second hat-trick in as many weeks as City thrashed Chelsea 6-0 on Sunday, with Raheem Sterling (No 2) netting twice and Aymeric Laporte (No 3) benefiting from breaking the deadlock at Everton in midweek.

"For Chelsea it was a tough day".

"It doesn't happen to Chelsea much, so when it does, it's a shock".

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.

Under Lampard's guidance, Derby are strong contenders for promotion this season, with only goal difference separating them from the play-off places at present.

Derby sit seventh in the table ahead of Wednesday's trip to bottom club Ipswich, while the Rams face Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday.
