Dire Chelsea suffer record Premier League defeat at Manchester City

Dire Chelsea suffer record Premier League defeat at Manchester City

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero equalled former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer for most hat-tricks in a Premier League game during City's mauling of Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium.

For the second successive week Sergio Aguero plundered a hat-trick - and in the process broke City's all-time league goalscoring record. At the moment I am not able to see the reason.

It means we are ahead of Liverpool on goal difference although the Merseysiders do have a game in hand as the season heads towards a pulsating final stretch. I am anxious about the performance but my job is always at risk so I am not anxious about the club.

Guardiola was asked about it and he played it down after speaking to Sarri's assistant manager Gianfranco Zola - who said Sarri did not see him.

Guardiola had left David Silva on the bench but his midfield looked perfectly balanced with De Bruyne and Gundogan providing a presence in the middle and Bernardo Silva, who seems to get better with every game, in imperious form on the right flank.

The hat-trick was complete from the penalty spot after Sterling was brought down inside the Chelsea box in the second half. Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley inexplicably headed a clearance back toward danger and Aguero pounced by shooting on the turn.




City eased off for the remainder of the first half, and Gonzalo Higuain even managed to test Ederson with a sharp volley, but the hosts clicked back into gear after the break.

Pep Guardiola's side struck four times inside the opening 25 minutes and continued to attack a beleaguered Chelsea throughout as Maurizio Sarri's humiliated team shipped six goals in a Premier League match for the first time in their history.

Aguero provided City's cutting edge and took his 2019 tally to 10 goals in all competitions, but the platform for their dominance was built on Silva's boundless energy.

Sterling wrapped up a brilliant afternoon's work after substitute David Silva opened up the Chelsea defence yet again and Zinchenko picked out the England global.

A key turning point came on the hour when Jamie Vardy missed a penalty for Leicester with his first touch of the game.

Eriksen then doubled Tottenham's lead inside three minutes. "We wanted to press them at the beginning of the action but the plan was completely ruined because we concede after three minutes".
