Jamie Carragher criticises Maurizio Sarri for 'turning Chelsea into Arsenal'

Could Brendan Rodgers be the next Chelsea manager

Could Brendan Rodgers be the next Chelsea manager

The Independent has now highlighted that the players at the club are indeed beginning to lose interest in what Sarri has brought to the table.

Regarding his job security, Sarri says it is right he should be criticised for the club's form, but asked for any questions about his future be directed to the club. I am anxious about our performances, not about the club. I think it might be one of the best performances of this team. We need to understand. "I have no idea at the moment".

"People don't understand how hard the first year can be". "My first season here was hard. People expect with a new manager and buying players it comes immediately, but it needs time". "It just depends on the belief of the owners".

"Liverpool are a very good side and they will realise they are in for a major battle". We conceded a stupid goal in the opening minutes that affected us for the whole game. "In the 20 minutes after the first goal we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents because they played some fantastic football".

Manchester City's on-fire striker Sergio Aguero struck his second hat-trick in a week as the champions ruthlessly destroyed woeful Chelsea in a 6-0 win at The Etihad on Sunday to return to the top of the Premier League.

The treble was his 11th in the Premier League, equalling the record of Alan Shearer, his second in three games and his 15th in City colours.

It also saw him become City's leading scorer in league football with 160 goals, extending his overall tally for the club to 222 in the process.

At the end Sarri failed to shake Guardiola's hand. I wanted to go to the dressing room and didn't see him. "I don't have a problem with Pep".

"They beat us at Stamford Bridge and against Napoli [Sarri's old club] last season they were tight games - in moments of those games, they were better than us".

They do so having regained first place from Liverpool on goal difference. 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.

Guardiola believes his team have the same appetite for success as his great Barcelona side."It is there", he said.

"After Newcastle we spoke to each other and put ourselves in front of a mirror, and accepted the reality. They still have that chance, but it has become a lot more hard in the last week".

"My sensations before kick-off were good, as they were during the week".
