Unable to fathom his team's second-half capitulation, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri kept his players in the locker room for around an hour after a humiliating 4-0 loss at Bournemouth on Wednesday.

The Cherries thrashed Chelsea in a rampant second-half display at the Vitality Stadium, condemning the Blues to their worse defeat in 23 years.

The four-goal defeat was only the second time Chelsea have ever been defeated by that margin in Premier League history - since a 5-1 loss against Liverpool in September 1996.

Sarri went on to explain to his club's official website why he sent the staff out the dressing room, as he spent 45 minutes with his players after the defeat.

"If that is not a real chance and goalscoring situation, I do not know what is", Klopp said of Maguire's escape.

"Whereas now, and this is not all players because I've worked with some brilliant lads who you can be harsh with, but a lot of players will take it differently now".

British MPs 'deeply troubled' by Nissan UK investment reports
And Nissan is part-owned by France's Renault, which could move production to France in future to avoid any post-Brexit EU tariffs. It has been active since 1986 and is Britain's largest vehicle factory, making it one of the region's key employers.

"The target is to qualify: the minimum we should do is qualify for the Champions League".

The Welshman was the star of the show in the 4-0 demolition of Chelsea in midweek but the 21-year-old picked up an issue and Eddie Howe will have to make do without him for the next month.

"Why? First I want to do very well the Plan A", Sarri said. "And the next coach I have, I will also frustrate him!"

Sarri even started to question himself.

So it was telling that in a recent interview with France Football magazine, Hazard was quoted as saying: "In my career I have frustrated all of my trainers".

Tim Bridge, director in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, said: "As we approach a decisive phase of the season, Premier League clubs' January transfer spending has been relatively muted in comparison to what we have seen in previous years".

Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes named NFL's MVP and top offensive player
Mahomes got 41 votes from the writers, far outdistancing New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, who got just nine votes. Mahomes had 50 touchdowns for 5,097 yards and 12 interceptions on the season. "I'm so humbled", he said.

"We had 43 minutes still to play, so we could solve the problem". But not with that kind of reaction.

"At the moment, they are always able to react very well against a big team".

But this performance could not be called boring - the Chelsea fans were biting their nails as the game wore on wondering where it would end as their team was embarrassed by Bournemouth. On the pitch I am really very happy with him.

He added: "If you stop playing, you can concede four or five goals".

A torrid night for Chelsea also yielded the first signs of significant supporter discontent with Sarri's methods, as loud chants of "You don't know what you're doing" rang out from the away section when Higuain was substituted for Olivier Giroud in the 65th minute.
