Bizarre Kovacic/Barkley stat emerges after Chelsea’s drubbing at Man City



A statistic surrounding the frequency with which Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri replaces either Ross Barkley or Mateo Kovacic with the other has been turning heads online over the last 24 hours.
Man City 6-0 Chelsea
Chelsea travelled to the Etihad to take on champions Manchester City yesterday evening, in a Premier League clash.
The Blues headed into proceedings hoping to reclaim their spot in the English top-flight’s top-4, after being leapfrogged by Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.
However, when all was said and done at the Etihad, not only did Maurizio Sarri’s men fail to take back their Champions League berth, but the capital giants also saw their goal-difference take an absolute beating.
A scintillating opening 25 minutes from City left Chelsea shell-shocked, as the hosts raced out to a 4-0 lead. Raheem Sterling opened the game’s scoring, before Ilkay Gundogan added to Sergio Aguero’s brace to kill the fixture as a contest within the opening half-hour.

And things only got worse for Chelsea following the interval, with Aguero having secured his hat-trick before Sterling added some gloss to the scoreline 10 minutes from time.

0-6 – Chelsea suffered their heaviest defeat in any competition since losing 0-7 to Nottingham Forest in April 1991. Drubbing.
