PSG hit five against Metz, ease pain of Real Madrid defeat

Under coach Unai Emery PSG’s grand project was bound to fail

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte and former Blues manager Carlo Ancelotti round out the list, which notably didn't include Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone.

Emery's sacking has seemed almost inevitable for some time now, with the main question being when the club would part with the tactician.

That night at the King Power Stadium two seasons ago they were abject, underwhelming and defeated drawing many parallels to Sunday's performance.

As it was, Unai Emery's side opted to take a more pedestrian approach to the second half and only added one more - Thiago Silva heading home in the 82nd minute. They should have shipped out a lot of their 'poncy' players in the summer. Seeing however that it was all for nothing and the spending spree achieved zero, I think I would be very depressed as a fan at this moment.

But this performance was not down to his future. This Chelsea performance lacked any intent whatsoever.

And it has been claimed that that French giants have already made a contract offer worth €10m per year and have promised vast transfer funds in the summer. "(Nkunku) is working hard in training.

The lack of weekly competition - let alone a season-long threat - in Ligue 1 directly impacts PSG's Champions League prospects.

PSG reportedly want to shake-up their squad after failing to win the Champions League this season.

Chelsea have next to no chance of retaining their Premier League crown.

Worryingly Hazard, who has been linked with big money moves to Real Madrid and PSG, looks as alienated as he did at the end of Mourinho's reign at Stamford Bridge.

There was little entertainment on show at the Matmut Atlantique, where Bordeaux and Angers drew 0-0. Playing Amiens and Guingamp on the weekend does not prepare you tactically or mentally for Real Madrid midweek. "Tomorrow, we will have a good match, also for our supporters".

Nkunku completed his brace eight minutes later for Emery's troops after going on a solo run before calmly slotting past Metz shot-stopper Eiji Kawashima. It took stewards several minutes to regain control before arouond 200 irate Lille fans returned to the stands having confronted players near the center circle.

With Ligue 1 supremacy virtually guaranteed, the greatest barometer of success is the Champions League.

Some have labelled Conte's potential sacking as 'disrespectful' for a man that transformed a broken side that finished 10th place into title winners in the space of a year.

If players are wielding power in the team, the opportunity to achieve their goals is greatly diminished.

An unethical, but successful philosophy?
