Manchester City sorry for playing Chelsea anthem after Etihad Stadium thrashing

Though we firmly believe that he's the right man to take us forward, patience has never been one of Roman Abramovich's strong points.

The Russian billionaire, who bought the club in 2003, is not renowned for his patience with managers once the rot sets in and, just eight months into a three-year contract, Sarri could soon find himself on the Chelsea scrapheap.

Chelsea have a temporary reprieve from the Premier League in that period, due to the quirk of the League Cup final against City falling on a weekend of league fixtures.

The Blues manager has come under increasing pressure in recent weeks following three successive away defeats to Arsenal, Bournemouth and Manchester City, conceding twelve unanswered goals along the way.

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.

Miller-Heidke won 135 points overall, topping both the audience vote with 87 points and the jury vote with 48 points. He said that having faced abuse as a young child as well, he was driven to help others in similar situations.

"You want to go and watch that, you're excited by watching City more than any other team in the Premier League, I get that". Yet, Sarri has done little to stem the tide, steadfastly refusing to change his approach to the game. This is a brutal schedule for any club, and the fact that each game matters as much as it does will put a lot of stress and wear and tear on the City lineup regulars.

As Sarri demands more aggression, persisting with Jorginho at the base of the midfield means his most tenacious player, N'Golo Kante, is out of position.

Cesar Azpilicueta, therefore, sent a bitter apology to the fans for letting them done in the game they highly anticipated as he admitted that the Man City brutality was the worst game of his career.

"The only thing I can say to the fans is "sorry", because it's not acceptable and I feel sorry for all of them".
