Manchester City sorry for playing Chelsea anthem after Etihad Stadium thrashing

Maurizio Sarri insisted his job was "always at risk" after a humiliating loss to Manchester City put further pressure on the Chelsea head coach. You have to ask the club.

Asked if he expected discussions with Chelsea's hierarchy in the coming days, the 60-year-old added: "I don't know, not at the moment, but I think that will happen because that is normal". Beyond that, it's 9/1 (10.0) that no Premier League boss leaves before the end of the season.

Manager Pep Guardiola sank to his knees in frustration but he was soon celebrating as Aguero made amends in sensational fashion.

In the past week City have beaten Arsenal at home and Everton away before taking Maurizio Sarri's side to pieces with four goals in the opening 25 minutes.

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. So now we need only to understand the reasons why at the moment it isn't working.

While there is no doubting our chief football writer that this display was one of the most impressive, the line got us thinking about just what was the best outing from the top flight.

Although Aguero headed against the crossbar early in the second half, he only had to wait until the 56th to seal his 15th City hat trick _ and a record-equaling 11th in the Premier League with Alan Shearer. He also became City's top-scorer in the league, with 160 in 229 appearances.

Kangna had expected the same reaction from Alia, but failing to receive the same treatment she came down harsh on her. She slammed Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt for not answering her calls and not showing support to her film.

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. I said if he felt good he could take it.

The victory takes City clear of Liverpool on goal difference again, though Liverpool have a game in hand.

Regular favourite Claude Puel is 7/2 (4.50) with plenty of questions over the future of Leicester City's under-fire boss, but the Frenchman has drifted off the back of results elsewhere over the weekend.

'I just spoke with Zola, Sarri didn't see me, ' said Guardiola afterwards. "Our staff don't love them too much because we don't let [the players] breathe but it's the only way".

Christian Eriksen netted moments later and although Vardy got one back, Son Heung-min's late strike ensured third-placed Tottenham clinched a fifth win in their last six league games.

"But we are still there, we can still go three points ahead of them if we win our game in hand".
