Chelsea were left with egg on their face from their trip to Manchester, as Pep Guardiola’s side ran riot to secure a 6-0 victory.
The defeat to Manchester City was Chelsea’s worst result in the Premier League era and it saw the pressure upon Maurizio Sarri increase significantly, with many believing the writing should now be on the wall.
Since arriving from Napoli last summer, Sarri has struggled to implement his style of play effectively on the Blues and fans have been growing increasingly frustrated with the Italian boss.
After suffering a 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth in their last match on the road, it did not appear like it could get any worse for Chelsea but that soon changed at the Etihad Stadium.
Naturally, supporters flocked in their numbers to social media to heap criticism upon the Italian boss – with Chelsea still searching for their first goal away from home in 2019.
Check out their reactions and responses from social media below.

A mauling of this nature has never happened at Chelsea. Not with Mourinho. Not with Scolari. Not with AVB or Di Matteo. Not with Antonio Conte. Maurizio Sarri has to go — by far, the most incompetent manager to ever manage us.

People saying sack Sarri. What manager would want to come in after looking at this and risk their reputation? Absolutely no one.
