Manchester City stun Chelsea with four in first half

Sarri Technically Manchester City have the world's best midfield

The victory was City's third in the space of eight days since a surprise defeat at Newcastle, leaving Guardiola understandably delighted.

They will then return to league action at the end of the month with another tricky game against Tottenham, who sit just five points behind City and Liverpool, at Stamford Bridge. "You will have to ask the club [if there will be discussions about my future]", Sarri said. "After that we worked, moved forward".

"We are there, we are the leaders, but Liverpool have one more game (in hand)". Arsenal at home and Chelsea at home and Everton away is a tough, tough week and we did incredibly. We started well but after four minutes we conceded a goal in a stupid way. He missed but more than made up for it. We need to understand the reasons.

"We can not forget Chelsea demand a lot of our pressing as they have a lot of quality, and Sergio sometimes was a little bit exhausted to do that, but of course in front of goal he is a special player".

It could yet be a significant day in City's season too, as they will be hoping they are celebrating a Liverpool slip and their first silverware when they meet Chelsea in the League Cup final later that afternoon.

Guardiola also reserved praise for hat-trick hero Sergio Aguero, whose future at City looked in doubt when the manager arrived in 2016. In the process he also became City's record league goalscorer with 160.

Thai officials previously said the process could be lengthy, depending on how many witnesses each side call. Senator Payne said she had also encouraged Bahrain's government not to to proceed with the extradition.

That was as much of a response as Chelsea mustered, though, and it only got worse for Sarri's chances of keeping his job in the second period.

Manchester City's huge win helped propel them back above their main title rivals Liverpool, as Sergio Aguero's hat-trick, a Raheem Sterling brace and Ilkay Gündogan's long-range effort humbled the Stamford Bridge club.

The Spaniard said: "I know exactly what he wants to do". That way he missed. "I told him not to do it again, but I think reaction was a little better".

Guardiola, who won three LaLiga titles and two Champions Leagues in charge of Barcelona, was asked how his current side compared to the one he had at the Nou Camp.

Just as Leicester pressed for an equalizer, Son Heung-min scored a breakaway goal, racing clear from the halfway line and converting his 15th of the campaign in the first minute of stoppage time. When we won (2-0 against City on December 8) at Stamford Bridge it was because we played well and were together.
