Chelsea to stick by Maurizio Sarri despite embarrassing defeat to Manchester City… for now

Liverpool and Manchester City come at the top of the Premier League's table but Manchester City played a game more than Liverpool.

The forward equalled Alan Shearer's record of 11 Premier League hat-tricks and nearly became City's top goalscorer in the league. Manchester city looks irresistible now.

"It is one of the worst nights in my career". But this weekend showed that at the top two it is lesser heralded players who are essential to their title bids.

They also remain in the FA Cup, facing Manchester United in the fifth round next Monday and are in the knockout stages of the Europa League, and sources at the club have indicated that they will be sticking with him. It would be almost impossible for the Citizens to complete the quadruple, and even though they might have wanted to prioritize the FA Cup over the Carabao Cup, they are already in the Carabao Cup final next week against Chelsea, a team they just destroyed 6-0 in one of the most resounding wins in recent Premier League history.

Manchester City's stadium DJ got a little carried away at the end of Sunday's game playing Madness song "One step beyond", a favourite at Stamford Bridge, at the end of the 6-0 mauling. First of all, while I do believe they will make it to the semifinals of the Champions League, I do not think they will have enough to overcome the monsters of Europe who are less concentrated on domestic league titles.

"Of course it is better if they lose some points. but I think all of us, not only the manager, but all of the players, have been saying to focus on our job", he told United Kingdom media. He's the best defender in the league. But this is the Premier League, this is not Serie A. You don't play in Italy the same way you play in England.

As Sarri demands more aggression, persisting with Jorginho at the base of the midfield means his most tenacious player, N'Golo Kante, is out of position.
