The Argentine striker's afternoon got much better soon after, however, curving home a sublime 25-yard effort before poaching a third to become City's all-time leading league scorer.

"My job is always at risk so I am not anxious about the club - you have to ask the club", Sarri said. They (Chelsea) beat us at Stamford Bridge, but people don't understand how hard it is.

"We spoke this morning, we trained set pieces, trained some movements and I never thought we would score this amount of goals". After three games in a week - Arsenal, especially Goodison Park and playing the way we played with this intensity and the desire and patience to find the right moment, the players were outstanding.

For Chelsea, their drubbing by City has seen them fall to sixth, denting ambitions of a top four finish.

"My feeling this week was really good", the Italian said after the game.

'I'm anxious about my team.

"Out of nothing", Sterling said, "he can put the ball in the top corner and players like this, you have got to cherish".

True, he has had time and over half a billion pounds to make City so strong, whereas Sarri is six months into his role and inherited a squad barely suited to his demands, but coaches must be flexible and pragmatic and the Chelsea boss displays neither of those qualities.

"In the last three or four matches we have been in trouble without a reaction at the first difficulty so we need to understand". We need to understand the reasons.

Asked if the thrashing showed his style of play simply will not work in England, he said: "No, because today I didn't see my football. At half-time, I told the lads that if we were able to react, we'd come back stronger than ever".

Winning that trophy alone will not be enough to keep him in a job, however.

After Antonio Rudiger's poor clearance, Gundogan slotted in the fourth in the 25th before Aguero netted the penalty that completed his 15th City hat trick in all competitions in the 56th.

"What Liverpool have got to do is they've got to respond in that week".

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick on a day which saw City look a class above.

In a Premier League title race that is extremely close, Manchester City were looking to stay close to Liverpool in the standings.

City has played a game more than Tottenham and Liverpool, which beat Bournemouth 3-0 on Saturday.

Between those contests they take on Manchester united in the FA Cup and after the second Malmo tie they meet Manchester City in the EFL Cup final.
