The Blues boss ignored Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola kind gesture after suffering his heaviest defeat as Chelsea manager.
Chelsea had responded to their 4-0 thrashing by Bournemouth by equally thrashing Huddersfield 5-0. But Manchester City dealt their quest to build momentum from the Huddersfield win a big blow.
It took just 4 minutes for the Citizens to score the first goal of the game. Raheem Sterling fired into the top corner of the net from the penalty box. Things went worst for Chelsea when Sergio Aguero added a second in the 13th minute. But by the 25th minute of the game it was a question of, how many more will City score? With Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan adding the third and fourth goal respectively.
The first half ended 4-0. But City added a further two in the second half to secure a 6-0 demolition of Chelsea. Aguero scored from the penalty spot in the 56th minute to complete his hat-trick, after a foul on Sterling in the box by Cesar Azpilicueta. Raheem Sterling then scored his second goal of the match in the 80th minute to compound Chelsea’s misery.
After the match Guardiola opted to exchange pleasantries with Sarri. But the Italian rushed pass the Manchester City boss and went into the tunnel. It was clear the Chelsea boss who had earlier complained about his players being difficult to motivate was disappointed with his player’s performance. Guardiola latter shook hands with Chelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola before greeting his players for a work well done.
The result returns Manchester City to the summit of the English Premier League table while Chelsea drop to six, below Arsenal on goal difference.
