These four players are behind Chelsea’s problems – Stan Collymore

"To score six against Chelsea and the way we played, we had so much attention (to detail)".

The defeat was Chelsea's worst since their 7-0 loss to Nottingham Forest in 1991 and will raise serious questions about the direction the team is going in under Italian Sarri as they slipped to sixth place on 50 points, a point off the top four.

Even winning league titles was not enough to save Carlo Ancelotti, Jose Mourinho or Antonio Conte from Abramovich's firing line and the gulf between Chelsea and City on Sunday showed just how far Sarri's side are from the Premier League's best right now.

"We had only to stay in the match but the reaction was not good". Their lead is a slender one, and they have played a game more, but the manner of their latest victory, which improved their goal difference advantage over the Reds to 10, was a powerful message.

City boss Pep Guardiola, though, urged the Chelsea hierarchy not to be trigger happy with Sarri.

"But people don't understand how hard it is to do something - my first year was hard too. In the 20 minutes after the first goal we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents because they played some fantastic football".

But Son had the last word in the 90th minute as the winger raced clear to slot past Schmeichel for his 15th goal of the season. A rapid exchange of passes opened up a chance for Maddison, prompting Jan Vertonghen to rashly bundle over the midfielder.

Sterling and Aguero were outstanding as Chelsea put in yet another lifeless display and surrendered the midfield to their risky hosts.

Manchester City's evisceration of Chelsea yesterday was described by Henry Winter as "one of the finest team performances in Premier League history".

"The problem lies with Eden Hazard, David Luiz, Willian, Pedro and Co - all those players who are nowhere near as good as they want you to believe".

City have now notched up scoring more than 1 goal in 15 consecutive Premier League games - matching a record achieved by Tottenham Hotspur back in 1965. "Normally people fall down after what we have done last season but we are still there".

But the Catalan coach need not have anxious that would prove a costly miss as Aguero made amends in stunning fashion by blasting into the top corner from 25 yards to double City's after just 13 minutes.

Most of the damage came in a whirlwind opening 25 minutes, with Aguero hitting his first two of the afternoon between strikes from Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan.
