Manchester City sorry for playing Chelsea anthem after Etihad Stadium thrashing

  • Chelsea vs City

According to one Chelsea fan, the German defender came over to the frustrated supporters to apologise.

Though they were 11 points out of fourth when the former striker took over, United leapfrogged Arsenal into fifth place last week and then moved into fourth place on Saturday, calmly thrashing Fulham 3-0. Despite this being a cup match, it could provide a major confidence boost for the remainder of the league if Chelsea can stop a surging Manchester United team.

The song, by Chelsea supporters Madness, is used after wins at Stamford Bridge and was played earlier in the season when Maurizio Sarri's side became the first team to beat City in the Premier League this season.

When Maurizio Sarri took over this Chelsea team he converted Kante from a classic defensive midfield role, to a more versatile box-to-box player.

'It is certainly a club I respect and a manager that I respect so it wouldn't make me smile or anything different because my job is here.

Pelosi, top Dems demand apology from Rep. Ilhan Omar for 'anti-Semitic' tweet
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and other high-ranking Democrats are slamming freshman Rep. The first anti-Semitic trope Ungar-Sargon referred to was when Omar said in 2012 that "Israel has hypnotized the world ".

The win put Liverpool, who'd been passed midweek by Manchester City, back atop the league table ... but only for a little more than 24 hours.

Sarri was back at work at Chelsea's Cobham training ground on Monday as he prepares the squad for their two-legged tie with Malmo, who they face in Sweden on Thursday. At the beginning [of the season] it worked.

"Some players have privately started to complain that everything is "too tactical" and that there is now an overload of instructions that they can't keep up with". So now we need only to understand the reasons why at the moment it isn't working. "Now we are playing better at home than away". I will never get excited about that.

"I don't know", he said when asked if he was concerned about his job.

Even winning league titles was not enough to save Carlo Ancelotti, Jose Mourinho or Antonio Conte from Abramovich's firing line and the gulf between Chelsea and City on Sunday showed just how far Sarri's side are from the Premier League's best right now. In that moment, we needed to stay in the match and we were not able to because we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents.
