Chelsea have sacked Roberto Di Matteo just hours after their Champions League defeat to Juventus.

The club have reacted swiftly to the 3-0 loss in Italy which took their hopes of reaching the last 16 out of their hands, and put them at risk of becoming the first holders to fail to reach the subsequent knockout phase. The Blues have also failed to win any of their last four Premier League games, a run which has seen them slip from top to four points behind leaders Manchester City.

"Chelsea Football Club has parted company this morning with manager Roberto Di Matteo," a club statement read.
