Sarri: Chelsea manager speaks after losing 6-0 to Manchester City

The game against Pep Guardiola’s men saw The Blues overpowered as Sergio Aguero netted a hat-trick to help City maintain their top spot on the EPL table.

Shortly after the game, Sarri spoke to Sky Sports about the loss.

Question: Maurizio, horrible day for you, how do you explain it?

Sarri: At the moment I am not able to explain. During the week my feeling was really, really good in training. So at the moment maybe we conceded a goal in three minutes against these opponents and it was really, really difficult to play.
And it was really, very difficult not to give them spaces and so we were in trouble, but I am not able at the moment to understand because as I said before during the week my feeling was really good.

Q: I understand what you say, difficult time for you to go into it, but do you think individual errors was the thing that cost you, or the approach on reflection wrong?

Sarri: I think we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents, they play really fantastic football and we made a lot of mistakes.

Q: Are you able to tell us what the plan was today, and did you change anything at all because it’s Manchester City or did you say ‘this is how we play, we keep doing it’?
Sarri: No, we wanted to press them from the beginning of the action but then the plan was completely over because we conceded a goal in three minutes so it was really, very difficult.

Q: At the moment, the way you want your players to play and press. Are they able to do it the way you want them to do it?

Sarri: No, not always, I think today the big difference between the two teams was the intensity of pressing. They press really, really well with really high intensity and we were not able to do it.

Q: After Arsenal and Bournemouth you talked about mentality, motivation. Did you see that as a problem today?

Sarri: I don’t think the motivation – as I said before my feeling was really, very good in the week. It was really, very good yesterday and during the warm-up. I think we were not able to react in the right way. We had only to stay in the match. It can happen. We were not able to stay in the match.

Q: Why do you think it keeps happening to you away from home? This is Arsenal, Bournemouth and now this all in a row?
Sarri: I think at the moment we have a big problem away.

Q: What’s causing that do you think?

Sarri: I don’t know because at the beginning of the season we played better away than at home. Now in the last month everything has changed so we need to understand it’s not easy. But we need to understand because we need to play in every situation, after a positive situation, after a negative situation we need to play to stay in the match.

Q: This is Chelsea’s worst ever Premier League defeat on the back of Arsenal and Bournemouth. Do you worry that a result like that, at a club like Chelsea, will bring pressure and scrutiny?

Sarri: I think that is right. I am in charge of the team so it is right.

Q: So what happens next, will you have discussions over your future?

Sarri: I don’t know. Not at the moment but I think it will happen, it’s normal and something we need to do.

Q: I just have to clarify this. You think in the next week you’ll be sitting down with the people at Chelsea to discuss if you’re still manager?

Sarri: I don’t know, you’ll have to ask the club. I have no idea about this at the moment.



  1. Nna that’s the worst match I’ve seen Chelsea play. Whaaaaat! As if Man City was spelling their name while scoring. C H E L S E A=7

  2. 7 nill or 6nill? Give Chelsea small respect na. I think Man city scored 6 writers scored 1 making it 7. Up United!!!

  3. This match is so saddening I think the coach must be sacked for my very first time in life I saw Chelsea been beaten by 7- 0 what a match.

  4. This is the worst feeling ever, his career may be on the line, but its not the end. Next match they will do better.

  5. a pity. Chelsea my football club. Why now? 7 is just too much. But all hope is not lost. There is room for more successful matches

  6. Its a pity that Chelsea lost with such a wide margin. The coach has to sit up its not the end of the league.

  7. Pls I am confused, was the match 7:0 or 6:0? Was another goal scored after the match or the writer scored one for Man city? This writer is either City or Arsenal fan. Up United.

  8. More efforts to Chelsea, this is not encouraging at all, 7 to nil.Please,this is not happening. Try harder next time

  9. Y is fake news everywhere
    Mancity won 6 – 0 not 7
    This is Chelsea’s biggest defeat against mancity

  10. It’s good the way he was able to identify the things that went wrong….. Chelsea should go back and work extremely hard.

  11. Mehn, the humiliation was too much on Chelsea.. I didn’t expect to see such outcome yesterday. That was really tactical error.

  12. Nah I can say that this is the worse game Chelsea have ever played or been beaten like this

  13. Chelsea is really facing a hard time oooh. The icing on d cake was yesterday’s match. May God give them the strength to bear this loss.

  14. Well l was not impressed when l heard it but it has happened they should not allow such a thing to happen next time

  15. It was a sad day for all chelsea fans. Even though i expected more from them. Some of the goals were cheap errors that should not be made at such a stage against such opponents. I believe they will bounce back.

  16. 6 is too much Na as if it was basketball well they’re many mistakes Chelsea made that’s why they concedes such goals

  17. Lolzzzzzzzz Chelsea is this you or is it ur spirit

    Though this morning I woke up around Chelsea 30am

  18. I think as he said he job is truly under threat but he should use this chance and turn things over in there favour

  19. Well chealsea losing to Manchester City doesn’t mean they are not good. Sometimes things do go the other way you think ot want

  20. What people don’t know is that football is like a luck,u may parpare and win,or loose and u may not parpare and loose, God knows everything thing.

  21. It’s a bad record for CFC under Sarri, the entire CFC will never forget this match and the caliber of player who played the match.

  22. 7 nill or 6nill? Give Chelsea small respect na. I think Man city scored 6 writers scored 1 making it 7. Up United!!!

  23. Hi your sorry a.s should have been sacked by now not just under threat! What were you dling? A big shame

  24. Game is all about success & failure. You can win today & fail tomorrow and you can also fail today & win tomorrow as well…. The life itself is circumstanced with changes……Chealsea, i wish you success some other time
