Manchester City sorry for playing Chelsea anthem after Etihad Stadium thrashing

Sergio Aguero did most of the damage against Chelsea, scoring a record-equalling 11th Premier League hat-trick and a 15th overall for the club.

However, Chelsea's performances against the big teams in the month will also play a pivotal role in determining whether the Italian keeps his job.

Sarri, fresh from seeing his side thrashed 6-0 at Manchester City, is odds-on with bookmakers to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post, while Zidane is the joint-favourite to replace him along with Gianfranco Zola.

Liverpool and Manchester City are the top two teams in England at the time and they are the main contenders for the league's title. It would be almost impossible for the Citizens to complete the quadruple, and even though they might have wanted to prioritize the FA Cup over the Carabao Cup, they are already in the Carabao Cup final next week against Chelsea, a team they just destroyed 6-0 in one of the most resounding wins in recent Premier League history. It's not so much about how well you play, it's getting the three points.
