Chelsea were marauded, annihilated, destroyed, massacred, obliterated – lend me some more adjectives – by a rampant Manchester City who hammered them by a 6-0 scoreline, their heaviest defeat since 1991 and a third hatrick of the season for striker Sergio Kun Aguero.
Manchester City have returned to the top of the league with an emphatic win over the London Blues. Although it must be said that they did this as early as the fourth minute with the goal coming from Raheem Sterling after David Luiz deflected the ball into his bath.
Kevin de Bruyne took a quick free-kick after Jorginho needlessly fouled him with the ball finding its way to Sterling who shot high into the net.
Soon after, Aguero who missed a chance few minutes before took possession from Oleksandr Zinchenko and sent a curling 25-yard shot past Kepa Arrizabalaga in what could be a goal of the season contender.
Aguero once again pounced on a defending gaffe from Ross Barkley and slotted a low shot past Kepa to net the third of the Citizens for the night. Who else but the Argentine. It was his 159th league goal for the Citizens.
In the 25th-minute Ilkay Gundogan got the fourth of the night when Luiz and Rudiger knocked the ball off Aguero. Whose strike would they have preferred? Gundogan or Aguero?
In only 25 minutes, Sarri’s ball had come crashing like a pack of cards.
Manchester City started the second half on the front foot once again with Cesar Azpilicueta bringing Sterling down after the English man had undone him. Aguero tucked it in for his 11th hatrick in the league claiming a joint record for most Premier League hatrick made by Alan Shearer.
Sterling registered his name on the scoresheet once again after receiving a clever pass from Oleksandr Zinchenko.
A humiliating crushing it was. Guess who felt it the most? Maurizzio Sarri rejected a handshake from Pep Guardiola after the match.
Manchester City 6-0 Chelsea it ended.
