EPL: Eden Hazard blamed for Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat to Man City

Frank Lampard has played down speculation linking him with a return to Chelsea, insisting he is only focused on Derby County despite being viewed as a candidate to replace Maurizio Sarri. Instead, the manager arrived quickly for his post-match press conference and left fewer than four minutes later, admitting that he was "worried" about his Chelsea side and adding that his job is "always at risk".

Chelsea on the other hand slip to sixth with the scale of the defeat sure to raise further doubts over Sarri's future.

"I would think that when you think what [Kante] did past year, he was head and shoulders ahead of anyone else", Harris said. At the beginning (of the season) it worked.

Sergio Aguero's 11th Premier League hat-trick equalled Alan Shearer's record, Raheem Sterling bagged a brace while Ilkay Gundogan was also on the score-sheet as City moved back to the top of the table in scintillating fashion.

There's several flaws in this story which we feel need bringing to the fore.

Maurizio Sarri arrived at Chelsea after an underachieving yet fruitful stint with Napoli, who had gone the closest to breaking Juventus' dominance of Italian league football. "You have to ask the club".

Sarri's players and the club were humiliated by the 6-0 drubbing against Pep Guardiola's City at the weekend and have been pushed out of the top four by Manchester United's resurgence under caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Will Smith's genie leaves Aladdin fans unimpressed
Unsurprisingly, most of the talk has focused on Will Smith's Genie , with not everybody convinced by the muscular blue spirit. The film will drop in theatres from May 24 , 2019 in the United Kingdom , and May 23 in Australia and North America.


It could even have been worse for Chelsea as Aguero missed a good early chance and also hit the bar.

It's suggested for some months the manager and senior players have been at odds over Sarri's tactical demands.

Chelsea play Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday and the Telegraph believe Sarri is under pressure to win the tournament as doing so would clinch qualification for the Champions League, which the newspaper say is rated more important than the Carabao Cup or FA Cup.

Sarri is under fire following a troubled first season at Stamford Bridge.

"There are issues behind the scenes, a disconnect between first team and the fabulous academy, a lack of direction with no technical director and an owner looking to sell", wrote Henry Winter in The Times.

"But beyond those five I can't think of anyone else I'd want to keep, which is a damning indictment on the rest".

You can't exactly blame them.
