Chelsea suffered a humiliating six nil defeat to Manchester City for the first time since 1991, when they lost by seven goals to Nottingham Forest.
Sarri’s men were outshined by rampant City who showed no mercy from the beginning of the game.
Raheem Sterling scored City’s first in just four minutes and securing the win with the last goal also. In between the goals were Sergio Aguero’s hat trick and Ilkay Gundigan lone goal.

Maurio Sarri who seeks more time at the Stamford Bridge to well establish his Sarri ball system may not have that opportunity.

Jorginho who is the heart of the Sarri ball system has not impressed fans after deciding to leave Napoli and reunite with former boss Sarri.
As to whether Sarri will get his much needed time to build his system will be left to be determined by time. Chelsea will travel to Sweden to play Malmo in their Europa league on Thursday,
