CHELSEA fans are split over whether to sack Maurizio Sarri or not – but if he is given the boot the Blues faithful want Frank Lampard or Zinedine Zidane to replace him.
Sarri's sorry run continued yesterday as Chelsea were thumped 6-0 away to Manchester City.

The Blues are yet to win or even score a single goal away from home this year, after previous losses to Bournemouth (4-0) and Arsenal (2-0).
Now, just over half of Chelsea supporters (55 per cent) want to see Sarri sacked after their Sunday smashing to slip to sixth in the table.
However, just one-quarter of the Chelsea faithful believe Sarri is to blame for their current woes, says our exclusive poll.
Just 14 per cent of fans blame the players, with the board also racking up 14 per cent.

In fact, nearly half of Chelsea supporters reckon it's a mixture of all three to blame for their current predicament.
It's fair to say Sarri is somewhat fortunate too – many a Chelsea manager has been sacked for much less over the years.
But should the former Napoli mean be given the boot, 31 per cent of fans would like Zidane to take over – with the three-time Champions League winning Frenchman having been out of work since his time at Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, Blues legend Lampard took 29 per cent of the vote, with the former midfield hero currently in charge of Derby.
