Sarri apologizes for record Chelsea loss.
Chelsea FC manager Maurizio Sarri apologized for Chelsea's record Premier League defeat and insisted he would be happy to receive a call from club owner Roman Abramovich after a 6-0 thrashing at Manchester City.
Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta apologized for their showing after the Blues slipped to sixth in the league and Sarri also acknowledged their performance was unacceptable.
"I am doing my best and I'm trying to get the players to do their best but at the moment I can only say sorry because in the last three away matches we played very badly. We started well but we conceded the first goal in a stupid way in the fourth minute and then everything was really very difficult because we had to stay in the match but we weren't able to do that.
"I am surprised because at the beginning of the season we played better away than at home. I don't know what's happened but at the moment we're in trouble. In the last three or four matches we have been in trouble without a reaction at the first difficulty so we need to understand," Sarri told Sky Sports.
Chelsea has conceded 12 goals in their last three Premier League away games, their battering at new league leaders City coming on the heels of a 4-0 thumping at mid-table Bournemouth.
