Sarri unmoved as Chelsea capitulation harms top-four hopes

Sarri unmoved as Chelsea capitulation harms top-four hopes

Manchester City striker Sergio Kun Aguero scored his second hat-trick in a week as his side hammered Chelsea 6-0 on Sunday.

Four away losses in a row in all competitions without scoring equals Chelsea's club record.

"I don't see any indication from the manager that he is looking to do anything else". So no, because at the beginning (of the season) it (his style of football) worked. I am anxious about my team, the performance, but my job is always at risk.

The away had lessened in numbers at half-time and the remaining thousands were not given anything to cheer about, with Aguero bagging his hat-trick in the 56th minute before Sterling notched his second late on. Not a bad 65-minute run out for the in-form forward, who took his tally to 23 for the season and made it nine goals in his last six outings.

Pep Guardiola's side struck four times inside the opening 25 minutes and continued to attack a beleaguered Chelsea throughout as Maurizio Sarri's humiliated team shipped six goals in a Premier League match for the first time in their history.

He said after the match on Chelsea TV: "For me the definition of madness is you keep trying the same things over and over again and it doesn't work and you keep doing it".

Given the fortunes of his predecessors, the odds are against Sarri being given time to see his vision of utopia at Chelsea, though he does have the chance to avenge this defeat against City in the Carabao Cup final in two weeks' time (Feb. 24, 11:30 a.m. ET; ESPN+).

English football's national stadium remains the temporary home of Tottenham where the north London club beat Leicester 3-1 in Sunday's other game.

It was a performance to send a chill down the spine of anyone with a Liverpool connection and one that emphasised why City are favourites to win the title race. Kevin De Bruyne released Bernardo Silva, who cut back for Sterling to strike into the net.

"After Newcastle we spoke to each other and put ourselves in front of a mirror, and accepted the reality", Guardiola said. "Because you have experienced it before and you know exactly what can happen".

Aguero was substituted on 64 minutes with Gabriel Jesus coming on.

Even without injured Harry Kane, Tottenham is reeling off victories.

Jamie Vardy, having been dropped from the starting lineup, was summoned from the bench only to miss the spot kick with his first touch.

Just as Leicester pressed for an equalizer, Son Heung-min scored a breakaway goal, racing clear from the halfway line and converting his 15th of the campaign in the first minute of stoppage time.
