Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea boss says sorry after Man City rout

Truly, it was a day to forget Maurizio Sarri and his side as they failed to bounce back from a 4-0 battering away to Bournemouth at the end of January.

Sarri, who left Serie A side Napoli to take charge at Stamford Bridge last summer, was asked if he was concerned about his own future.

Chelsea are now 5/4 (2.25) to finish in the top four but even if they fail to achieve that milestone, the Europa League could offer a viable alternative route to the Champions League next term. "I am worried about my team, I am worried about the performance but my job is always at risk so I am not worried about the club - you have to ask the club".

The result dropped Chelsea to sixth in the Premier League and raised fresh questions about Sarri's job security, but he was bullish about the prospect of an Abramovich phone call in a post-match interview with Sky Italia. You have to ask the club.

But rather than being furious with his counterpart, Sarri says he simply did not see the City manager as he made a beeline for the dressing room to digest a painful performance. At the beginning (of the season) it worked. "We need only to understand the reason why at the moment it is isn't working".

"It is not easy".

"He doesn't believe I'm bad when we lose and good when we win. At the moment we're playing another football".

It was Chelsea's heaviest defeat since losing 7-0 to Nottingham Forest in 1991.

"But we are still there, we can still go three points ahead of them if we win our game in hand". "I didn't see him at that moment, of course it's usual to shake", said the Chelsea manager. "This kind of person, these type of games, always helps to make our football better". He wants to try to do that.

Defender Azpilicueta, who was given a torrid time by two-goal City winger Raheem Sterling, said on the club's website, www.chelseafc.com: 'It's hard to find the words to describe my feeling after the game. Mine was hard too. The people expect that it immediately comes, it needs time.

Raheem Sterling started and ended the scoring and Ilkay Gundogan also netted in the first quarter of the game as City ended what could have been a testing week with a trip to Everton in between the visits of Arsenal and Chelsea with maximum points.

The victory was City's third in the space of eight days since a surprise defeat at Newcastle, leaving Guardiola understandably delighted.

"Out of nothing", Sterling said, "he can put the ball in the top corner and players like this, you have got to cherish". "I'll go to say hello to him later, it was by chance".
