Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has once more stated he will not change his team’s style of play despite the Blues’ humiliating 6-0 defeat to Manchester City at Etihad Stadium, a defeat which has taken them to a sixth place in the English Premier League.
The last time Chelsea lost a game by such a margin was way back in 1991, but and this is a third successive away loss in the League, including another disappointing 4-0 loss in the hands of Bournemouth two weeks ago, a defeat which has taken 22 years to resurface.
According to Goal, when quizzed if he had any doubts about whether his style of play could work at Stamford Bridge Sarri told a post-match press conference that: “No, because today I didn’t see my football.
“At the beginning [of the season] it worked. So now we need only to understand the reasons why at the moment it isn’t working.
“Something is changing. I am not able to see the reason but we have to work for this. My target is to play my football, not to change [to] another football because at the moment we are playing another football.”
He also said: “My feeling today was really very good,” said Sarri. “The area map was really good so I think the motivation was at the right level. We started well then we conceded the goal after four minutes in a stupid way.
“In that moment, we needed to stay in the match and we were not able to. They [City] played really fantastic football today.”
Sergio Aguero scored a hattrick, Raheem Sterling a brace, and Ilkay Gundogan got away with a goal.
