Chelsea are crumbling and the man at the helm Maurizio Sarri has apologies to convey. The downhill tumble of Chelsea can be summed up in one simple stat – 0 goals scored and 12 conceded in their last 3 away games.
“In the last three matches away we’ve played very badly so we need to say sorry,” said the 69-year-old Italian.
Sergio Aguero spearheaded the rout which completed Chelsea’s worst ever loss in Premier League history.
It is one of the worst nights in my career,” added defender Azpilicueta, 29. “It is difficult to explain what happened.
“We are conceding a lot of goals and we cannot accept that. All I can do is apologise to the fans because it is not acceptable.”
Sarri spoke apologetically after the game.
“I’m surprised because at the beginning of the season we played better away than at home so I don’t know what has happened but at the moment we are in trouble,” Sarri added.
“In the last three or four matches we were without a reaction from the first difficulty so we need to understand.
“It is difficult to describe our performance, it’s difficult also to understand. We started well but after four minutes we conceded a goal in a stupid way.
