Sarri sorry for record Chelsea loss and happy to hear from Abramovich

The report says: "Manchester City apologised to Chelsea for playing the Londoners" victory anthem "One Step Beyond' after Sunday's 6-0 rout". With that hat hatrick, AGUERO has now rqualled Alan SBEARER's record of 11 Premier League hat tricks.

Pep Guardiola is delighted with what has been a hugely profitable week for Manchester City with big wins over Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea. Feigning ignorance about the location of the ball, Dean shrugged his shoulders before retrieving it from under his top for a beaming Aguero.

A 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth in their last away game was Chelsea's heaviest league defeat since 1996.

Sterling's pace and skill drew a clumsy Cesar Azpilicueta foul inside the box and Aguero beat Kepa once more with an excellent penalty.

Raheem Sterling scored twice and Ilkay Gundogan also netted.

But the Catalan coach need not have anxious that would prove a costly miss as Aguero made amends in stunning fashion by blasting into the top corner from 25 yards to double City's after just 13 minutes.

True, he has had time and over half a billion pounds to make City so strong, whereas Sarri is six months into his role and inherited a squad barely suited to his demands, but coaches must be flexible and pragmatic and the Chelsea boss displays neither of those qualities. You have to ask the club.

"I'm surprised because at the beginning of the season we played better away than at home so I don't know what has happened but at the moment we are in trouble", Sarri added.

Silverware could still be collected in two weeks. Barça's forward has 21 before Sunday's game against Athletic Club. It strengthened Tottenham's hold on third place and left Mauricio Pochettino's side only five points behind City and Liverpool.

"Incredible week, incredible game", Pep told the BBC after his side dismantled Chelsea.

"After Newcastle we spoke to each other and put ourselves in front of a mirror, and accepted the reality", Guardiola said.

Chelsea was un-picked after only four minutes.

Who are the best team of the last decade - is Guardiola right?

Before starting on his way to another hat trick, Aguero uncharacteristically missed the target from close range. "Because they are professionals and I know they will react and it will be tougher".

"It's a little bit about the manager".

Aguero's second was gifted to him six minutes later.

Guardiola was able to rest City's hat-trick hero, De Bruyne and Fernandinho for the closing stages and Sterling tapped in a cross from the lively Zinchenko for a simple sixth.

Chelsea did not look like a top four team.

Jamie Vardy, having been dropped from the starting lineup, was summoned from the bench only to miss the spot kick with his first touch.
