"Get Lampard in. Anyone but Sarri", said one supporter. You have to ask the club. I am anxious about my team. I am anxious about my team, the performance, but my job is always at risk. "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".

He told Sky Sports: "At the moment I am not able to explain". We need to understand.

"I didn't see at that moment".

Pep Guardiola defended Sarri, a close personal friend. "People don't understand how hard the first year can be", he said.

And Sarri completing his first season in charge is now far from certain. "People expect the manager to arrive, buy players and it happens immediately", said Guardiola. "It just depends on the belief of the owners". "No, I don't think so". My feeling in the week was good and yesterday in the meeting it was good, and in the warm-up.

In the past week City have beaten Arsenal at home and Everton away before taking Maurizio Sarri's side to pieces with four goals in the opening 25 minutes. "In the 20 minutes after the first goal we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents because they played some fantastic football".

A hat-trick from Sergio Aguero, two goals from Raheem Sterling and one for Ilkay Gundogan condemned Sarri's side to the embarrassing defeat.

The footballer had been sentenced to 10 years' jail in absentia by Bahrain for alleged vandalism, but he denies any involvement. The pity is, the past two months of detention and fears he would be tortured on return to Bahrain could have all been avoided.

Aguero's hat-trick against Chelsea was his 15th in all competitions for City and his 11th in the Premier League putting him joint top of the Premier League hat-trick records charts with Alan Shearer.

Insisting he was happy for Vardy to take the penalty, Puel said: "I gave him the opportunity". It was by chance because I wanted to go to the dressing room at that moment, and I didn't see him. At the beginning, we played better away than at home.

They do so having regained first place from Liverpool on goal difference. Tottenham are five points back, also from a game less.

"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. They still have that chance, but it has become a lot more hard in the last week".

"What matters most to me is to try and finish the season in the best way and try to win some silverware".

The Londoners crashed to their heaviest defeat since 1991 as the Premier League champions ran riot at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
