Pep Guardiola defends Maurizio Sarri after Man City hammer Chelsea



Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has this evening leapt to the defence of Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri, in the aftermath of the Citizens’ drubbing of their Premier League rivals.
City run riot
The two sides went head to head at the Etihad, in the second of the day’s Premier League fixtures.
Both sides headed into proceedings with critical season targets to play for, with hosts City hoping to keep pace with Liverpool atop the English top-flight, and Chelsea aiming to reclaim their spot in the top-4.
However, when all was said and done in Manchester this evening, the gulf in class between the Citizens and Blues at present was laid bare for all to see.
An absolutely embarrassing opening 25 minutes to the clash for Chelsea saw City race out to a 4-0 lead, courtesy of Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero (2) and Ilkay Gundogan, And the champions didn’t let up after the interval, with Aguero having gone on to notch his hat-trick from the penalty spot, before Sterling netted his 2nd of the day 10 minutes from time.
