Asked if this defeat made him fear that his style of football can not work at Chelsea, Sarri replied: "No, because today I didn't see my football".

Their manager accepted he is concerned by their recent displays but gave a considered assessment when asked whether he fears for his future.

"I am anxious about my team and I am anxious about the performance". "You have to ask the club".

"I think that is right".

"I know what he wants to do", Guardiola told a news conference after City leapfrogged Liverpool to reclaim top spot in the Premier League table. We need to understand the reasons.

"It is not easy".

At this point, Chelsea fans began to open up Google Maps and six minutes later were following the route home as Ilkay Gundogan curled a tame effort in for a fourth.

Kieran Trippier's corner was played short to Eriksen, who floated in an inviting cross for Davison Sanchez to power home a diving head for his first Tottenham goal in the 33rd minute.

"But that result for City has confirmed after their hiccup, they're saying: 'We're bang at it, this is how we're going to finish the season".

They duly responded by thumping Huddersfield 5-0 last weekend but were once again thoroughly outclassed on Sunday afternoon. I'm proud we are there.

"My feeling during the week was really very good", he said.

That was after City had scored an opening goal inside the first five minutes of the game for the third Premier League game in their last four, having done the same against both Newcastle United and Arsenal. Hopefully, this season we'll be able to do it again. "It's not to change (to another style of) football because at the moment we are playing another football".

Sarri admitted the mauling suffered against Pep Guardiola's men was hard to comprehend.

He added: "I didn't see him at the moment but of course as usual I will go to say hello to him later as usual. I have not a problem with Pep".

Mark Lawrenson believes Manchester City will beat Chelsea FC on Sunday despite backing Gonzalo Higuain to get on the score-sheet at The Etihad. (Sarri) didn't see me. "But, after, his reaction was a little bit better".

The final scoreline was the worst of Sarri's coaching career and comes less than two weeks on from the dire 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth, which magnified the scrutiny of the Blues' development under the former Napoli boss.

Asked what he thought of Aguero's miss, Guardiola said: "He said to me he saw Kepa coming quick to close the space and he wanted to be precise, close to the post".
