Bernardo Silva believes Manchester City's confidence is soaring thanks to their knack of scoring early goals.
"It is one of the worst nights in my career".
However, while the title may be gone, there is still plenty to play for in the remaining months of the season, so do Chelsea stick by keeping faith with the "Sarri-ball" project or twist hoping for the bounce of a new face in charge?
But if that confidence in Sarri isn't there, then they would surely be better looking for a manager with a track record of developing young players.
Ironically, the best thing for this team right now might actually be to lose within the next few rounds of the FA Cup. They must strive to achieve at least two cups, with the third being an added bonus, and if they are able to stay in contention for the Champions League and Premier League title, they can not add any extra minutes for their important players to play in the FA Cup.
Manchester City's stadium DJ got a little carried away at the end of Sunday's game playing Madness song "One step beyond", a favourite at Stamford Bridge, at the end of the 6-0 mauling.
Sergio Aguero grabbed a hat-trick as City leapfrogged Liverpool again to top spot in the English Premier League on goal-difference. I think he's got very interesting technical qualities, he's got very attractive vision, but he needs to speed up.
Maurizio Sarri's fate as Chelsea head coach is set to be decided in the next fortnight with the Italian facing an uphill battle to stop the players giving up on him. "We conceded more chances than usual, but I think the victory is fair", Pochettino said.
