Chelsea manager has said that he is more worried about the results in the aftermath of the Blues' disappointing 2-0 defeat to Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round.

  • Manchester United make player-plus-cash offer for West Ham United star
  • Bayern Munich want to sign Chelsea attacker this summer

  • The west London giants have been on the wrong side of a multiple embarrassing defeats since the turn of the year and the same occurred against the Red Devils, who beat them for the first time at the Bridge post the Sir Alex Ferguson era.

    Speaking after the game, Sarri acknowledged that the supporters are unhappy with the FA Cup exit but he is more worried about the club's run of form in the past few weeks.

    "I am worried about the results, not about the fans. Of course I can understand the situation, I can understand our fans because the result wasn’t really good," he was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

    Chelsea will now shift their attention towards their Europa League round of 32 second leg against Malmo where they are in a good position to progress after the 2-1 triumph on the road.

    Thereafter, the Capital outfit are scheduled to face Manchester City in the League Cup final where they will certainly be termed as underdogs after their 6-0 league thumping by the Citizens earlier this month.
