Unwanted records put Sarri in Chelsea's familiar firing line

Unwanted records put Sarri in Chelsea's familiar firing line

Sergio Aguero's 11th Premier League hat-trick equalled Alan Shearer's record, Raheem Sterling bagged a brace while Ilkay Gundogan was also on the score-sheet as City moved back to the top of the table in scintillating fashion.

"I told him don't do it again", added Guardiola on the miss. "You have to ask the club".

The result proved to be Chelsea's third straight defeat away from home since the turn of the year and the Blues have conceded 12 goals without scoring during that insipid run. In 2018/19 there have so far been 4 games where a team has scored 6 or more goals in the Premier League and City account for three of these games!

Asked if this defeat made him fear that his style of football can not work at Chelsea, Sarri replied: "No, because today I didn't see my football".

'It is certainly a club I respect and a manager that I respect so it wouldn't make me smile or anything different because my job is here. At the beginning (of the season) it worked. Taking nothing away from Man City though, this was their best work of the campaign and could be a vital moment in the title race. We need to understand the reasons. "To be honest, I don't really know what to expect". If we had played "Blue Moon" after beating City at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season, Chelsea fans will have been loving it. "My target is to play my football, not to change another football because at the moment we are playing another football".

Sarri has often criticised his players for their performances this season. I said if he felt good he could take it.

When asked if he was excited about being the bookmakers favourite to replace Sarri, Lampard responded: 'Bookmakers are not always right for starters.

City brushed aside a surprisingly poor Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium, doing most of the damage in a whirlwind opening 25 minutes that yielded four goals.

"At that moment we had to only stay in the match and we were not able to stay in the match because we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents".

But, speaking to the press afterwards, as quoted by the Evening Standard, the 60-year-old was unbending in his belief in his style of play, though was bullish in admitting the current footballing fare was not close to his enduring philosophy.
