With all the rumour and speculation that surrounds our football club and Maurizio Sarri's position in particular, I want to know from you the Chelsea fan (or football fan for that matter) when you believe we should judge the Italian?

My own personal opinion is that he will not be at our club next season because of recent comments made to the media stating that he "cannot motivate this group of players". That's such a revealing statement to make and would have been heard through the corridors of Stamford Bridge.

However, I still want to read as much opinion as possible here on when you think that we, as Chelsea fans, should be judging his performance? Should it be almost instantly, after a short period of time, half-way through the season, three-quarters of the way through it or at the end of the season?

As we know Maurizio Sarri was a late appointment by Chelsea with the Italian literally having a couple of weeks to work with the players before the season started. It was a ridiculous situation to be in and the club should have sorted this all out before the World Cup started. They didn't and Sarri was left to pick up the pieces of the fall-out with Antonio Conte. It's therefore unfair to judge his start to the season because of what happened.

Chelsea started with a twelve-game unbeaten run in the Premier League that took us right through to our first defeat away to Tottenham on 24th November. During that time, we beat Arsenal, drew with Liverpool and drew with Manchester United. However, it was the nature of our defeat away to Spurs that really hurt and exposed the defensive frailties we have with Sarri's system and the decision to play certain players where he does.

Into December and after beating local rivals Fulham, we lost to Wolves away, beat Man City and Brighton but then lost at home to Leicester. At the end of December we beat Watford and Crystal Palace. January we drew with Southampton at home, beat Newcastle but then followed these two games with recent defeats to Arsenal and Bournemouth before thumping Huddersfield.

The frustrating thing in all this has been team selections, substitutions and the manner of how we have played in games where we have dropped points to teams we should be beating. As for playing the five other top-six teams, it's a roulette based on who turns up in the game on the day.

For many Chelsea are far too predictable now for opposition managers to prepare their teams to face. They know the starting line-up with there being a regular rotation between Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley, Willian or Pedro and up to the point we signed Gonzalo Higuain, it was between Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud. They know that whoever starts, the other will come on and replace them playing exactly the same way.

Now that Higuain has signed for the club and has hit the ground running this past weekend against Huddersfield, is it only now that we should judge the manager because he finally has a striker that can play his way?

Chelsea face a massive month ahead of us as posted here and it will be interesting to see where we find ourselves in all four of the competitions that we play in the next four weeks.

Will that be the time to judge Maurizio Sarri? Tell me what you guys think?
