Manchester City thrash Chelsea 6-0 to go top of Premier League

"It's close to being finalised but not quite done, so I don't want to jump the gun", said Lampard.

The result proved to be Chelsea's third straight defeat away from home since the turn of the year and the Blues have conceded 12 goals without scoring during that insipid run.

Sergio Aguero completed his hat-trick with a 56th-minute penalty before a late second for Raheem Sterling condemned Chelsea to their worst defeat since losing 7-0 at Nottingham Forest in April 1991.

The former Leicester midfielder has proven himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but under Sarri has been used in a more advanced role because Jorginho, who arrived from Napoli in the summer, is a key cog in the manager's fast-paced possession-based system, sometimes known as "Sarrismo".

"It is hard to explain what happened". It is certainly a club I respect and a manager that I respect so it wouldn't make me smile or anything different because my job is here.

"Bookmakers are not always right for starters, so I wouldn't get excited about that", he said during Monday's press conference.

"He's [Maurizio Sarri] turned Chelsea into the Arsenal team that used to get battered for the last seven, eight years away from home in big games because they're so weak".

"Something is changing. At the moment I am not able to see the reason but I have to work for this because my target is to play my football, not to change another football because at the moment we are playing another football".

Pochettino's side took the lead through Davinson Sanchez's first goal for the club, but they were indebted to Hugo Lloris for saving Jamie Vardy's spot-kick after the interval at Wembley.

"To score six against Chelsea and the way we played, we had so much attention (to detail)".
