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


At the moment I don't know, maybe the goal we conceded after three minutes against this opponent was really very hard to play, not to give them spaces, so we were in trouble. At the moment we have a big problem away [from home]. Instead, the manager arrived quickly for his post-match press conference and left fewer than four minutes later, admitting that he was "worried" about his Chelsea side and adding that his job is "always at risk".

A hat-trick from Sergio Aguero, two goals from Raheem Sterling and one for Ilkay Gundogan condemned Sarri's side to the embarrassing defeat. It's something that we need to do. "My target is to play my football, not to change another football because at the moment we are playing another football". "Yesterday during the meeting was really very good, during the warm up was really very good so I think the motivation was at the right level".

"My first year was hard too".

"It is hard to describe our performance, it's hard also to understand. People expect with a new manager and buying players it comes immediately, but it needs time".

Aguero, who scored a hat-trick seven days ago against Arsenal, has equalled Alan Shearer's record of 11 Premier League hat-tricks and is now joint top scorer in the league this season with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah on 17 goals.

"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".

While there is no doubting our chief football writer that this display was one of the most impressive, the line got us thinking about just what was the best outing from the top flight.

Chelsea boss Sarri headed straight down the tunnel without shaking hands with Pep Guardiola, but the pair spoke privately after the game. "I'll go to say hello to him later, it was by chance".

"If they are going to win the league they need to maintain that standard every week because they can't afford to make mistakes. The important thing, after what we have done last season, is being there", said Guardiola.

"Some players have privately started to complain that everything is "too tactical" and that there is now an overload of instructions that they can't keep up with".
