Azpilicueta cant find words to describe Chelsea's embarrassment at Man City

Chelsea vs City

The club's owner, Roman Abramovich, has taken an increasingly hands-off approach this season, but Sarri is relying on the patience of a man who is very well known for having little of it. "It is hard to explain what happened". Yet whether they are prepared to wait and endure humiliations like Sunday's at the Etihad Stadium remains to be seen.

Maurizio Sarri's future at Chelsea is at risk as a dramatic drop in form and positive results across the winter period has left a number of his players concerned that his football philosophy is not getting the best out of the squad at his disposal, Goal understands.

Both Manchester City and Chelsea went into their clash on Sunday afternoon needing three points.

"I didn't see at that moment". Tottenham inflicted Chelsea's first loss on November 24 and defeats to Wolves and Leicester followed before the turn of the year.

The City manager has displayed an nearly zero tolerance policy towards missing such chances, as shown in the Amazon Prime documentary "All Or Nothing" where he substituted Raheem Sterling for missing a similar chance against Burnley last season.

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.

"What Man City do - blowing teams away, scoring so early, the football that they play - you could argue that is the best football to watch", Carragher said. He appears unaware of the impact of his public criticisms. He has also at times been outshone by some of his City team-mates, particularly in their title-winning seasons.

Heat trade Johnson, Ellington to Suns for Anderson
Johnson, 26, went undrafted in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft out of Fresno State. The 10-year veteran is averaging eight points in 21 minutes per game during his career.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta branded the hammering at City unacceptable and apologised to supporters. N'Golo Kante looked as lost as anyone in that more advanced midfield position Sarri keeps insisting he plays. It may have worked at Napoli, but Chelsea have been often been ponderous in possession and porous without the ball. He has no intention of trying an alternative, saying: "Why?"

"But I am not able at the moment to understand, because during the week my feeling was really very good".

Reasons to be optimistic?

The Blues next face Malmo in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie on Thursday.

After that comes a home FA Cup tie against a resurgent Manchester United, where defeat would pile significantly more pressure on Sarri.

City fullback Oleksandr Zinchenko came back into the side for the victory at Chelsea and can expect to play some part in their next two domestic cup games.
