Manchester City stun Chelsea with four in first half

  • Man City using past glory in title race – Silva

Roman Abramovich "will act" following Chelsea's 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday, according to former assistant boss at Stamford Bridge, Paul Clement.

In addition, Aguero is now level with Alan Shearer on 11 Premier League hat-tricks.

Additionally, he is now the highest scoring player against Chelsea (10), surprassing Shearer (Blackburn and Newcastle) and Thierry Henry (Arsenal).

A 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth in their last away game was Chelsea's heaviest league defeat since 1996.

But Aguero more than made up for it, particularly with a stunning 25-yard opener, and the pair shared a joke when he was substituted midway through the second half. The goal after three minutes made it very hard to play against these opponents, who played fantastic football.

"I don't know", Sarri said.

"Chelsea take the ball, play incredible, so that's why I am very pleased after we played Arsenal, Everton and had a few days to recover".

Silverware could still be collected in two weeks.

Next Saturday, City continue their quest for glory on all four fronts when they visit Newport County in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

"City have had their rollicking off their manager and they've had their points dropped".

After losing 2-0 to City in the Community Shield, Chelsea went unbeaten in 18 games.

Guardiola said: "People don't understand how hard the first year can be".

Chelsea was un-picked after only four minutes.

Guardiola had left David Silva on the bench but his midfield looked perfectly balanced with De Bruyne and Gundogan providing a presence in the middle and Bernardo Silva, who seems to get better with every game, in imperious form on the right flank.

Aguero should have doubled the lead nearly immediately but remarkably missed from close range.

The Spaniard said: "I know exactly what he wants to do".

"It's a little bit about the manager".

That established Aguero as City's record league goalscorer, surpassing the 158 goals of Eric Brook and Tommy Johnson, and he later extended his tally to 160 by completing his treble from the spot.

He said: "The players were outstanding".

Aguero was on target again within six minutes.

It's the worst defeat for Chelsea since they were beaten 7-0 by Nottingham Forest in 1991.

But Chelsea do not show much patience with failing managers and the current incumbent was skating on thin ice before his team were dismantled by City.

Eriksen then doubled Tottenham's lead inside three minutes. Just as Leicester pressed for an equalizer, Son Heung-min scored a breakaway goal in the first minute of stoppage time.
