Cesar Azpilicueta has branded Chelsea's 6-0 hammering at Manchester City unacceptable and apologised to supporters. It makes no sense to play the older players when you have nothing to win.
Restricted to Europa League football this season, the Blues' priority is to get back into the Champions League, but they are now sixth in the Premier League, outside of the European places altogether. "All I can do is apologise to the fans because it is not acceptable".
Sergio Aguero's 11th Premier League hat-trick equalled Alan Shearer's record, Raheem Sterling bagged a brace while Ilkay Gundogan was also on the score-sheet as City moved back to the top of the table in scintillating fashion.
Chelsea now sit sixth in the Premier League, below Arsenal on goals scored, ahead of what could be a decisive period for Sarri before the end of February.
They were in trouble after just four minutes on Sunday as Sterling opened the scoring. "We are conceding a lot of goals and we can not accept that", said the Chelsea defender.

Cavani may now increase the woes of PSG , after recently picking up a thigh injury during a recent Ligue 1 clash with Bordeaux . Speaking on French television on Sunday, manager Thomas Tuchel said: "There is no good news for Edi this morning".
That led to Lampard, who is Chelsea's record goal-scorer after a glittering 13-year spell at Stamford Bridge, to find his name mentioned as a candidate to replace Sarri if he is axed by Roman Abramovich. I do my best and the players do their best.
"I don't know [about my future]".
Aguero missed his first chance to seal a second hat-trick in two games when he headed against the crossbar.
"But I am not able at the moment to understand, because during the week my feeling was really very good". "But I don't know what to expect; people keep asking me what I think about the situation, but I think that's a question which needs to be put to the club". They have since lost seven out of 21 in all competitions.
While Eden Hazard might be keen on leaving Chelsea for Real Madrid, it is simply hard to digest the thought that the Blues will have to comply with FFP by selling one of their best players - especially when they haven't really spent much in the recent past.
Among these players, Aguero has the lowest minutes per goal or assist ratio with 85 and he narrowly beats Henry's figure of 86. In that moment, we needed to stay in the match and we were not able to because we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents.
