Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea season tickets holders are selling their seats to protest against Maurizio Sarri

It really does seem to be one step forward and two steps back for Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea this season.

Back on February 27, the Blues appeared to have saved their season and prolonged Sarri's stay at the club with a well-deserved 2-0 win over bitter rivals Tottenham.

Chelsea looked strong favourites to claim a top four spot after that result, but their form has drastically tailed off in the Premier League once again.

An unconvincing 2-1 win away at Fulham has been followed up by a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves and a 2-0 loss away at Everton on Sunday.

Their two games in hand have yielded very little and Sarri's job is under threat once again.

The only solace for the Italian is the Europa League, with Chelsea beating Dynamo Kiev 8-0 over two legs and drawing Slavia Prague in the next round.

But it seems that is far from enough for the Chelsea faithful, because the club's season-ticket holders are now selling their tickets to protest against Sarri.

As per the Daily Mail, hundreds of fans are expected to boycott Chelsea's next three home games in April.

The effort to push the manager closer to the exit door last night saw 400 fans list their seats on the club's official exchange service for the home game with West Ham.

Sarri infuriated on the touchline vs Everton

Nearly 700 fans are attempting to offload their tickets for the home game against Burnley, while others are reportedly not even attempting to sell and simply will not attend the matches.

When the fans start acting in such a manner - particularly at a club like Chelsea - the manager rarely survives.

Sarri's refusal to adapt in certain games has widely criticised, while his use of N'Golo Kante has baffled near enough everyone.

If the Italian is still in charge at the Bridge next season, it'll be a minor miracle.
