CHELSEA fans called for “Sarri out” after Callum Hudson-Odoi was named on the bench for the clash against Cardiff.
The England international is being made to wait for his first Premier League start – even though Eden Hazard is also beginning the match on the sidelines.
He has made 19 appearances for the Blues this season, but Sarri is reluctant to use Hudson-Odoi in league games.
The Blues boss has picked Willian and Pedro to start ahead of him for the showdown in the south of Wales.
After the line-up was announced, one fan said: “He is asking to get sacked at this point.”
While another simply added: “Sarri out.”
