"Six goals against Chelsea is not easy and we are so pleased for this week".
City supporters goaded Chelsea by telling them to bring Jose Mourinho back and, after such a hammering, it may not be long before Stamford Bridge managerial speculation is ramped up again.
Sunday's result means Chelsea have now lost three straight away games and manager Sarri was at a complete loss to explain the disastrous display, with question marks now surrounding his future as the side slipped to sixth in the Premier League. "The experience of many years and many games in the Premier League helps you a lot in moments like this", Silva said. Something is changing. I am not able to see the reason but we have to work for this.

"We are there, we are the leaders, but Liverpool have one more game (in hand)". "The first four chances, we had scored three", he said. "After that we worked, moved forward".
It began badly as they were caught napping after just four minutes.
Aguero should have doubled the lead nearly immediately but remarkably missed from close range. "To be honest, I don't know what to expect. Sometimes he is a little bit exhausted, but he is a special player".
"Out of nothing", Sterling said, "he can put the ball in the top corner and players like this, you have got to cherish". Aguero was lurking in the six-yard box and punished the former Everton midfielder with a sharp turn and shot. David Luiz headed clear but Ross Barkley inexplicably headed back into the danger area.
But the Catalan coach need not have anxious that would prove a costly miss as Aguero made amends in stunning fashion by blasting into the top corner from 25 yards to double City's after just 13 minutes.
Jamie Vardy, having been dropped from the starting lineup, was summoned from the bench only to miss the spot kick with his first touch.
Aguero should have doubled the lead nearly immediately but remarkably missed from two yards.
