Manchester City thrash Chelsea 6-0 to go top of Premier League

Arsenal are OUT of it this is who will make top four out of Chelsea and Man Utd – Owen

Maurizio Sarri has claimed that his job as manager is "always at risk", as Chelsea were thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

City beat top-six rivals Chelsea 6-0 to leapfrog above Liverpool in a tricky week when they also beat Arsenal and won away at Everton.

Manchester City's next few fixtures see them face Newport County in the FA Cup and Schalke 04 in the Champions League, before taking on Chelsea again, this time at Wembley in the League Cup.

But the Spaniard says as long as City play as a team, there is no pressure, and thanked his players for their spectacular performance on Super Sunday. As quoted on the club's official website, he said: "I don't know, you have to ask the club".

"I don't see any indication from the manager that he is looking to do anything else". We need to understand the reason why at the moment it is not working. After 3-0 they were much better than us and after 5-0 it was not easy for them. Now we are playing better at home than away. In the beginning we played better away than at home, now we play better at home than away, something has changed.

There was no repeat of the lengthy dressing-room inquest between Sarri and his players that followed Chelsea's shock 4-0 loss to Bournemouth earlier this month.

LeBron James didn't like how Harrison Barnes trade went down
The Mavericks now have $13.1 million in room to use at the trade deadline or up until June 30. Sacramento entered Wednesday a game out of the final playoff spot in the West.

City boss Pep Guardiola empathises with his counterpart, pointing to his own occasional difficulties in implementing his ideas when he first arrived in the north-west three years ago. He wants to try to do that.

"It is hard to describe our performance, it's hard also to understand. My first year was hard too". People need time, it only depends on the owners, the people in charge need to believe.

Sergio Aguero was today's hat-trick hero, equaling Alan Shearer's all-time record of 11 Premier League hat-tricks.

The victory was City's third in the space of eight days since a surprise defeat at Newcastle, leaving Guardiola understandably delighted.

"Out of nothing", Sterling said, "he can put the ball in the top corner and players like this, you have got to cherish". Indeed, come the home league clash with West Ham on February 27, City could be back in the driving seat on all fronts as they head into the business end of the campaign at a scintillatingly high level. "After that we worked, moved forward".

"We are there, we are the leaders, but Liverpool have one more game (in hand)".
