Sky Sports pundit Paul Mer’son:

“I don’t care wha’t any’body says but if any other ma’nager at any other club in Eur’ope lost 5-0 at home to your bigg’est rivals, the manager is gone. If Che’lsea or Arsenal lost 5-0 a’t home to Totten’ham, the m’anager would do well to still b’e there on the Monday morning.
