Sensational City hit Sarri’s struggling side for six

"We need only to understand the reason why at the moment it is isn't working. In the 20 minutes after the first goal we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents because they played some fantastic football". After 3-0 they were much better than us and after 5-0 it was not easy for them. "I am worried about my team, I am worried about the performance but my job is always at risk so I am not worried about the club - you have to ask the club".

When you lose 6-0 we have to accept we didn't play well and made errors.

"If the president calls I'd even be happy, seeing as I never hear from him", Sarri said.

Pep Guardiola insists pressure does not exist as Manchester City bounced back with three vital wins in eight games, rounding off with a 6-0 thrashing of Chelsea.

"My job is always at risk so I am not anxious about the club - you have to ask the club", Sarri said. Sergio Aguero then helped himself to a hat-trick and Ilkay Gundogan also got on the scoresheet before Sterling completed the rout with his second.

Chelsea's manager also defended his "Sarri-ball" style which has been badly criticised following yesterday's hammering by City and the 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth, both coming in their previous two away games. At the moment I am not able to see the reason.

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. Standing between Chelsea and the League Cup is City in the final on February 24 at Wembley Stadium. Chelsea are sixth, behind Arsenal on goal difference and one point adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United.

The ska song is a Stamford Bridge anthem that Chelsea play after big victories and it seemed to be a deliberate choice to wind up the beaten Londoners.

Such was the defensive collapse at the other end, Gonzalo Higuain had little chance to shine but the Argentine striker was unfortunate not to score his third goal in as many league starts for Chelsea when Ederson turned over his dipping volley five minutes before the break.

Between those contests they take on Manchester united in the FA Cup and after the second Malmo tie they meet Manchester City in the EFL Cup final.
