Dire Chelsea suffer record Premier League defeat at Manchester City

Sarri Technically Manchester City have the world's best midfield

We examine the extraordinary statistics behind Manchester City's 6-0 thrashing of Chelsea.

Sergio Aguero's hat-trick against Chelsea sees him become Manchester City's all-time record league goalscorer. At the beginning (of the season) it worked. The only reason I came to City, the chairman and the people here, they believe in me and don't think badly when I lose.

"It was really very hard not to give them space and so we were in trouble, but I am not able to understand because as I said before in the week I had a very good feeling", he said.

Guardiola added: "I know exactly what he wants to do".

However, head coach Sarri still has no intention of changing his philosophy. "Something is changing. At the moment I am not able to see the reason but I have to work for this because my target is to play my football, not to change (to) another football because at the moment we are playing another football".

"We need to understand".

"I am anxious about my team and the performance - my job is always at risk". They beat us at Stamford Bridge [in December] and against Napoli last season [in the Champions League] it was tight, they were better in moments. We did it, it's an incredible compliment to the players, they are outstanding.

Sarri, though, did not think they were struggling for motivation this time.


Sarri stormed down the tunnel without shaking Guardiola's hand at the full-time whistle, but the City boss said it was not an issue. "We have to say they played really fantastic football". "This type of person always helps to make our football better, and he tries to do it".

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho at Manchester United in December, it appeared Chelsea were in a straight tussle with Arsenal for fourth spot, with Sarri's side three points ahead of their London rivals and 11 above United.

To show how things have turned around, United now have a better goal difference than Chelsea, having been 21 goals worse off before Solskjaer's first game against Cardiff on December 22.

"But people don't understand how hard the first year can be".

"[Sarri] needs time and that depends on the believers, the owners, people in charge".

There appeared to be nerves creeping into rivals Liverpool's game following back-to-back draws prior to Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

A Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie at Schalke follows on 20 February, before City meet Chelsea once more in the Carabao Cup final on 24 February. Jurgen Klopp's side must respond in their next league game, which happens to be against United at Old Trafford in two weeks.
