Aguero, City humiliate Chelsea _ even referee joins in japes

Sarri's side were well beaten and could have been much more so with Aguero offered a sure tap in at the start of the game.

Guardiola is aiming to become the first manager in more than a decade to win back-to-back Premier League titles and has challenged his side to replicate the desire of his old club that won three La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues during his time there. You'd have to ask the club. At the moment I'm not able to see the reason but I have to work for this, I think. At the beginning [of the season] it worked. We need to understand and the reason is not easy. They played fantastic football and we made a lot of mistakes. But how they lost to City and Bournemouth has been completely against Sarri's style of play where you pressure well, show patience on the ball and use speed in attack combined with quick passes.

"Today I didn't see my football", Sarri said.

Chelsea boss Sarri headed straight down the tunnel without shaking hands with Pep Guardiola, but the pair spoke privately after the game.

"I'm worried about my team, I'm worried about the performance, [but] my job is always at risk, so I'm not worried about that", Sarri said. "This kind of person, these type of games, the football helps to make it better". He wants to try to do that.

"But people don't understand how hard the first year can be". Mine was hard too. People need time, it only depends on the owners, the people in charge need to believe.

Manchester City's on-fire striker Sergio Aguero struck his second hat-trick in a week as the champions ruthlessly destroyed woeful Chelsea in a 6-0 win at The Etihad on Sunday to return to the top of the Premier League.

The victory was City's third in the space of eight days since a surprise defeat at St James' Park, with Arsenal and Everton having also been brushed aside. "We did it, it's an incredible compliment to the players, they are outstanding", added the Spaniard. "The only thing I can say to the fans is sorry, because it's not acceptable, and I feel sorry for all of them".

"After Newcastle everybody was put in front of the mirror and we talked to each other and we accepted the reality and moved forward".

They have taken nine points from three hard games to maintain the pressure on Liverpool, but Guardiola insisted they must be more consistent to hit their very best form.
