MANCHESTER CITY 6-0 CHELSEA Embarrassing, Shameful, Disastrous... And That Was Just The First Half:

Manchester City 6-0 Chelsea: Sergio Aguero smashes sublime hat-trick to humiliate Sarri
Manchester City proved they were bang in contention for a sizzling Premier League title race by humiliating Maurzio Sarri's Chelsea in ruthless fashion. Raheem Sterling opened the scoring after four minutes, before Sergio Aguero recovered from missing an open goal by slamming home a sublime hat-trick in a convincing man-of-the-match performance. Ilkay Gundogan added another for Pep Guardiola's men, who return back to the summit of the table level on points with rivals Liverpool. Sterling's 80th minute hit from the edge of the six-yard box capped off a miserable Chelsea evening.

But what of Chelsea? Just what was this?
Oleksandr Zinchenko cut the ball across the area for Raheem Sterling to sweep into the back of the net for a remarkable 6-0
Was it just a bad day at work or a deliberate attempt to rid themselves of their coach Maurizio Sarri? It is hard to really believe it was the latter.
Chelsea have an FA Cup tie at home to Manchester United a week on Monday and then a League Cup Final against City. If they really are to cut their coach off at the knees then surely they would wait until after those two season-defining moments?
So we have to put this down to incompetence. We have to presume this was one of this disastrously perfect footballing storms when eleven abysmal performances all arrive at once to form one enormous thunderclap of horror. If Sarri is to survive the winter at Stamford Bridge then the upturn is going to have to be significant and immediate.
Of the six goals scored by City here, four of them were coloured by Chelsea mistakes. They were big ones, too. All City could do was go back to the well and keep drinking.
