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

Among City's six goals against Chelsea at Etihad Stadium, Sergio Aguero registered a second hat-trick in three games to make it nine goals in his last six matches in all competitions.

While Chelsea are aiming to finish in the top four and achieve Champions League football next season. 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. "At the beginning, it worked, so now, we need only to understand the reason why, at the moment, it isn't working".

"Chelsea have had the week off after thumping Huddersfield last weekend but I don't think that win over the Terriers changes the fact that all is not well with Maurizio Sarri's team".

Asked if the thrashing showed his style of play simply will not work in England, he said: "No, because today I didn't see my football".

The City reverse was Chelsea's third away league defeat in a row in which they have conceded 12 goals, piling the pressure on a manager whose insistence on adhering to his philosophy of possession football is frustrating the Chelsea fans.

'We don't love each other too much, the players and the staff.

"But, despite the titles, the desire to do their best and where they are is incredible".

"I don't know", Sarri said.

"But people don't understand how hard the first year can be".

During that period, Liverpool have the opportunity to move three points clear in the title race when they travel to face a resurgent Manchester United.

"[Sarri] needs time and that depends on the believers, the owners, people in charge".

The Italian was probed as to whether his job could be in danger during a post-match interview with Sky Sports and admitted talks with the club's hierarchy are likely to be held, though he stressed that was a "normal" outcome after a game.

A Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie at Schalke follows on 20 February, before City meet Chelsea once more in the Carabao Cup final on 24 February.

There appeared to be nerves creeping into rivals Liverpool's game following back-to-back draws prior to Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth. Jurgen Klopp's side must respond in their next league game, which happens to be against United at Old Trafford in two weeks.
