And everyone associated with the Blues would want to forget this game as soon as possible.
Man City thumped six goals past Chelsea with Sergio Aguero scoring a hattrick.
The Stamford Bridge outfit were on the backfoot from the very start and it looked as if the Blues would score with each attack they managed to conjure.
The loss now means that Manchester United will remain in the top four and Sarri’s men have now slipped down to the sixth spot.
While most of the Chelsea fans were heading for the exit doors well before the final whistle there was one person who was keenly watching the game until the very end.
Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and first-team coach Keiran McKenna was amongst those present in the stadium.
United and Chelsea will go head to head on the 19th of this month in the fifth round of the FA Cup and Solskjaer was obviously watching how Chelsea could be dismantled.
And Pep Guardiola’s men gave a perfect example of how to neutralize Sarri-ball and come out on top.

The Blues players were all over the pitch and Solskajer would most certainly have taken a number of notes during City’s 6-0 win.
But one thing that Solskjaer would not have seen were the strengths of Chelsea – since there weren’t any during the match.
Many pundits are claiming that the FA Cup game vs Man United could be an acid test for Maurizio Sarri and if the Italian fails to win this game then he might very well start packing his bags.
Solskjaer has so far won every game in the Premier League and the cup games and with the way Chelsea are playing right now, Man United might just end up getting an easy win next week.
