Under-fire boss Maurizio Sarri oversees Chelsea training after Manchester City loss

"We are conceding a lot of goals and we can not accept that". When Sarri was appointed last July, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said the club's hierarchy were "looking forward to him bringing his football philosophy to Chelsea".

6 - The Londoners conceded six goals in a Premier League match for the first time in their history.

At a time when the country is more divided than ever, split down the middle by completely opposing ideas, there is only one thing that can truly unite us all against a common enemy: Chelsea getting battered.

"I think the Tottenham game, I think as soon as Chelsea's hierarchy feel they could miss out on the top four, that's when they may make that change".

Sergio Aguero completed his hat-trick with a 56th-minute penalty before a late second for Raheem Sterling condemned Chelsea to their worst defeat since losing 7-0 at Nottingham Forest in April 1991.

"We are conceding a lot of goals and we can not accept that".

"I don't know", he said. With a few Chelsea players surrounding him, Manchester City's all time leading scorer let out a thunderous right footed shot which went into the top corner.

"All my thoughts are on Ipswich Town away on Wednesday - I hope to see Chelsea put some form together and turn their results around".

"I am anxious about the performance, but my job is always at risk".

The owner at Stamford Bridge Roman Abramovich is not known for his patience and with the Blues now sixth in the league, the rumour mill is starting to churn over Sarri's future.

"I think this is a moment for everybody to assume responsibilities".

Chelsea lost Sarri's first game in charge, August's Community Shield with Manchester City, before embarking on an 18-match unbeaten run.

"But people don't understand how hard it is to do something - my first year was hard too".

The Telegraph, meanwhile, reports Sarri has a crucial fortnight coming up, while he will also be expected to win the Europa League.

City brushed aside a surprisingly poor Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium, doing most of the damage in a whirlwind opening 25 minutes that yielded four goals.

"We knew we had one of the best teams in front of us and we knew it would be tough. In the 20 minutes after the first goal we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents because they played some fantastic football".
