Manchester City have apologised to Chelsea for the music that rang out around the Etihad Stadium on Sunday following the hosts' 6-0 victory, Press Association Sport understands.

Chelsea have lost their last three away games in the Premier League - to Arsenal, Bournemouth and Manchester City - by an aggregate score of 12-0.

Sarri's players and the club were humiliated by the 6-0 drubbing against Pep Guardiola's City at the weekend and have been pushed out of the top four by Manchester United's resurgence under caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "You will have to ask the club [if there will be discussions about my future]", Sarri said.

"I think this is a crucial moment in the history of this club", Mourinho stated.

"Abramovich is out of the country but Stamford Bridge sources told the Chelsea-news-Maurizio-Sarri-Roman-Abramovich-Manchester-City" Daily Express that if Sarri wants to talk to the Russian owner, there would be no problem.

However, Chelsea's performances against the big teams in the month will also play a pivotal role in determining whether the Italian keeps his job.

"If the club sacks me, they sack the best manager that this club has had".


The Italian manager is in his first season and has Chelsea close to the top four, still alive in the Europa League, alive in the FA Cup and in the League Cup final. At the beginning [of the season] it worked. Fellow fans need to call this out more, challenging the abusers in their midst whether in the stands or on social media. "Now we are playing better at home than away".

Last season was the first time in his career that Aguero was voted into the PFA team of the year, having been omitted in favour of players such as Romelu Lukaku, Daniel Sturridge & Jamie Vardy in previous seasons.

AGUERO would go on and redeem himself with a goal of the season candidate.

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

Defender Azpilicueta, who was given a torrid time by two-goal City winger Raheem Sterling, said on the club's website, chelseafc.com: "It's hard to find the words to describe my feeling after the game".

"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".

"We had only to stay in the match but the reaction was not good".
