Manchester City Demolish Chelsea, Tottenham Stay In Premier League Title Hunt

In the aftermath of that humiliating 6-0 defeat by Manchester City on Sunday, the Chelsea left back Marcos Alonso was assailed with such fans' verdicts of him as "trash", "shit", "the worst footballer I've seen", "consistently dreadful" and "must be cerebrally challenged".

Manchester City went back to the top of the table on Sunday following their 6-0 demolition of Chelsea. "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". You have to ask the club.

Chelsea lack an on-field leader like John Terry and Blues legend Ron "Chopper" Harris is anxious that it could cost Maurizio Sarri his job.

"But I think all of us, not only the manager but all of the players, have been saying to focus on our job". So, I am not anxious about the club.

The result proved to be Chelsea's third straight defeat away from home since the turn of the year and the Blues have conceded 12 goals without scoring during that insipid run.

Asked if this defeat made him fear that his style of football can not work at Chelsea, Sarri replied: "No, because today I didn't see my football". So now we need only to understand the reasons why at the moment it isn't working.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has proven in his 15-year tenure his willingness to wield the axe and he is not renowned for his patience.

Strangely, Aguero's first major involvement in the game was arguably one of the worst misses of his career when he inexplicably stroked the ball wide of an open goal from all of two yards with the score at 1-0.

In a Premier League title race that is extremely close, Manchester City were looking to stay close to Liverpool in the standings.

Guardiola knew his tactics would take time to register but there was a discernable plan, he knew he would get the signings he wanted and retain his best players.

The Russian has been absent from games this season, and Sarri revealed after the chastening defeat to City that he "never" speaks to his boss.

His 43 goals against the Premier League "big six" since 2011 is far and away the best return of any player during this period.

"Maybe it was not a good thing, but we had a lot of chances, not just with this penalty".
