Sarri worried as Chelsea are hit for six by City

Maurizio Sarri admitted his concern as Chelsea crashed to their heaviest defeat in almost 28 years and gave an equivocal answer when asked about his future.

The Italian's position as Blues manager is likely to come under further scrutiny after they were routed 6-0 at Manchester City less than two weeks on from a shock 4-0 thumping away to Bournemouth.

Sandwiched between those two heavy losses was a 5-0 win over Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge last weekend and Sarri revealed the discrepancy between home and away results has left him bewildered.

He made an encouraging start to his tenure as Chelsea were unbeaten after their first 12 Premier League matches under him this season, but they have faded out of title contention and now face a battle to finish in the top four.

When asked whether he fears being sacked, Sarri replied: "I don't know, you have to ask the club.

"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.

"I didn't see my football (against City). At the beginning (of the season) it worked. So now we need only to understand the reasons why at the moment it isn't working. We need to understand the reasons.

"It is not easy. At the beginning, we played better away than at home. Now we are playing better at home than away.

"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 another football because at the moment we are playing another football."

The setback at the Etihad Stadium was Chelsea's worst result since a 7-0 thrashing at the hands of Nottingham Forest in April 1991.

City boss Pep Guardiola empathises with his counterpart, pointing to his own occasional difficulties in implementing his ideas when he first arrived in the north-west three years ago.

The Spaniard said: "I know exactly what he wants to do. This kind of person or this type of game always helps to make our football better. He wants to try to do that.

  • Alan Shearer, Sergio Aguero (11)
  • Robbie Fowler (9)
  • Thierry Henry, Harry Kane, Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney (8)

"People don't understand how difficult the first year can be. Mine was difficult too. People expect with a new manager and buying players it comes immediately, but it needs time."

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.

The victory was City's third in the space of eight days since a surprise defeat at Newcastle, leaving Guardiola understandably delighted.

He said: "The players were outstanding. I just said to them thank you for what they have done.

"After Newcastle we spoke to each other and put ourselves in front of a mirror, and accepted the reality. After that we worked, moved forward.

"We are there, we are the leaders, but Liverpool have one more game (in hand)."

Football rumours from the media

What the papers say

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's interim position could be made permanent at the end of the season, according to The Sun. Crediting with transforming a struggling Manchester United side, who were languishing in sixth place when their former striker replaced Jose Mourinho in December – the paper says the United hierarchy have made a decision, but it may not be confirmed until the summer.

Wolverhampton are the favourites to land Portuguese starlet Joao Felix, the Mirror says. The 19-year-old has already made an impression at Benfica and stands to make a move to Molineux due to their links with agent Jorge Mendes, the paper says, but it remains to be seen whether the Lisbon side will be prepared to cash in on their star midfielder.

After returning to form on loan at AC Milan, Chelsea's Tiemoue Bakayoko could be in line for a permanent move to the Italian side at the end of the season. But, according to the Star, the Blues will insist upon Franck Kessie being including as part of an agreement should Milan decide to take up their option to buy 24-year-old Bakayoko.

Leeds ace Jack Clarke is attracting interest from the top flight, with Liverpool said to be monitoring the 18-year-old. The Mirror reports Jurgen Klopp is among a host of admirers, including Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester rivals City and United, who could be poised to make a bid in the summer. Clarke, who on Saturday was taken ill during a match at Middlesbrough, made his debut in October and has gone on to make 17 appearances this season.
