EPL: Sarri accused of turning Chelsea into "the new Arsenal"

EPL: Sarri accused of turning Chelsea into

"My job is here", Lampard told a Derby media conference on Monday.

Lampard backed Chelsea "as a club" to show resilience and respond to the humiliating defeat, their worst in the league for nearly 28 years.

"Out of nothing", Sterling said, "he can put the ball in the top corner and players like this, you have got to cherish". It doesn't happen to Chelsea much so when it does it's a shock.

"They are going up against an incredible team". I have some feelings for them.

"Incredible week, incredible game", said manager Pep Guardiola.

Back in 2009, Brazilian Luiz Felipe Scolari was handed his marching orders in February with the team in fourth place, seven points behind league leaders Manchester United.

Malmo are the opposition in the last-32, with the first leg on Thursday.

Aguero's current form suggests he will break the 20 goal mark for the fifth consecutive league season, the sixth time overall in his City career since arriving in the summer of 2011.

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. At the moment I don't know, maybe the goal we conceded after three minutes against this opponent was really very hard to play, not to give them spaces, so we were in trouble.

But win either of those games, or at least show signs of fight in them, and he could be allowed a stay of execution into the Premier League fixtures against Tottenham, Fulham and Wolves at the start of March. It's very frustrating, it's very disappointing.

You've played City twice in the league now so you won't have to face them again. "All I can do is apologise to the fans because it is not acceptable".

Sandwiched between those two heavy losses was a 5-0 win over Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge last weekend and Sarri revealed the discrepancy between home and away results has left him bewildered.

They were in trouble after just four minutes on Sunday as Sterling opened the scoring.

Sergio Aguero completed his hat-trick with a 56th-minute penalty before a late second for Raheem Sterling condemned Chelsea to their worst defeat since losing 7-0 at Nottingham Forest in April 1991.

AGUERO received a golden opportunity to extend City's 1-0 advantage against Chelsea but from close range, missed.
