Man City hit Chelsea for six as Aguero grabs hat-trick

Sarri's position could be under threat following Sunday's 6-0 loss at Manchester City, another of Lampard's former clubs, as the Blues slipped to sixth place in the Premier League.

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.

"My job is always at risk", he said on Sky Italia as his team fell to pieces against the champions. "Chelsea are certainly a club I respect, and have a manager I respect", said the Derby County manager.

Maurizio Sarri's reputation took another damaging blow less than two weeks on from the terrible 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth with the Italian's team ruthlessly sliced apart at the Etihad Stadium.

Yet eliminating the side who finished third in the Swedish league last season would only marginally bolster his job prospects unless a team clearly struggling to come to terms with his tactical demands can improve their performances over a daunting run of domestic fixtures. "So I am not anxious [about that], you have to ask the club".

The Blues next face Malmo in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie on Thursday. 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.

Chelsea had not lost by six goals or more since April 1991 - a year before the inception of the Premier League - when Nottingham Forest beat the west London club 7-0.

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. "We started well but after four minutes we conceded a goal in a stupid way".

However, in Sarri's defence, the repeated churn of managers at Chelsea points to a bigger problem than just the manager's tactics.

Sarri has previously questioned his players' desire and motivation after poor results against Arsenal and Bournemouth, but was at a loss to explain Sunday's capitulation at the Etihad. I assume my responsibilities, the players should assume their responsibilities, there are other people in the club that should also assume their responsibilities, and to stick together.
