Manchester City were able to beat Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea side 6-0 in the Premier League at the Etihad on Sunday evening.
The hosts inflicted Chelsea’s heaviest defeat in almost three decades and their 69-year-old Italian manager felt the need to apologise to fans following the final whistle:
In the last three matches away we’ve played very badly, so we need to say sorry.
Defender César Azpilicueta also claimed that it was “one of the worst nights in my career”.
These were the best tweets and jokes as Chelsea lose 6-0 to Manchester City:
This could be Chelsea's worst defeat since they were formed 26 years ago

Chelsea are heroes in my eyes. They knew Man City needed a convincing win to boost their confidence and they took a hell of a beating for the whole humanity. My respect is yours

Rumours going around that Chelsea are set to replace Sarri with Liam Neeson.

Okay. No more tweets about Sarri now. Actually feel quite bad having seen these two pictures. pic.twitter.com/na0CqWRxFn
