Sergio AGUERO scores hattrick in Manchester win against Chelsea

A miserable day at the Etihad Stadium was Chelsea's worst result since losing 7-0 to Nottingham Forest in April 1991 and comes less than two weeks after a shock 4-0 hammering at Bournemouth.

Maurizio Sarri's have struggled to find consistency since seeing their unbeaten start come to an end in a 2-0 loss at Tottenham at the end of November.

Sarri was also asked if he feared for his future as Blues boss.

"I have said many times, Sergio scores every single season a lot of goals". I am anxious about my team and the performance, but my job? "You have to ask the club". At the moment I am not able to see the reason. Sarri's purist form of football, with goals, pace and ambition, worked well at Napoli - even though he did not win a trophy - but has not translated itself to English football.

"It is not easy. Three hard games in a week and playing the way we played, with that intensity, the players were outstanding.I can just say to them: thank you".

One twitter user wrote: "City trolling Chelsea with One Step Beyond after stuffing them 6-0 was a lovely moment".

He added: "Liverpool have one more game than us I think it's going to finish in the last games [of the season]".

Sarri said: "My feeling this week was really good".

"My feeling was that in this match the motivation was at the right level". In the 20 minutes after the first goal we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents who played fantastic football.

"We had only to stay in the match but the reaction was not good".

It was a stunned Sky Sports studio that had to provide the autopsy on Maurizio Sarri's sorry side who had capitulated so easily in the first half in east Manchester, with Jamie Carragher humorously stepping up the task with eloquence, managing to not only insult Chelsea, but also their London neighbours Arsenal.

"He said to me he saw Kepa coming quick to close the space and he wanted to go close to the post and that's why he missed it. I have not a problem with Pep".

But the Spaniard says as long as City play as a team, there is no pressure, and thanked his players for their spectacular performance on Super Sunday.

And looking ahead, with Chelsea facing a tough month both domestically and in Europe, Sinclair says he has seen nothing to suggest Sarri will shake things up. "This type of person always helps to make our football better, and he tries to do it".

"It is hard to describe our performance, it's hard also to understand. My first year was hard too".

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