Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta

Chelsea Captain Cesar Azpilicueta Yesterday apologized to fans for the club’s 6-0 lost to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

The Blues experienced their biggest defeat in 28 years since  Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest defeated 7-0 in 1991 recording four away losses in a row in all competitions for Maurizio Sarri’s side this season.

Sergio Aguero scores hat-trick while Raheem Sterling scored twice and Ilkay Gundogan contributed one to see Manchester City move back above Liverpool into the Premier League table top.

However, the defeat dragged Chelsea to sixth place on goal difference and are a point behind Manchester United in fourth battling to  earn Champions League qualification.

The Blues have so far recorded three straight Premier League games loses away with an aggregate 12-0 scoreline and defender Azpilicueta acknowledged they performed abysmally bad.

“It is one of the worst nights in my career. It is difficult to explain what happened,”

“The first five or six minutes went well but that is not enough. It is very frustrating and disappointing. We are conceding a lot of goals and we cannot accept that.

“When you lose 6-0 we have to accept we didn’t play well and made errors. We knew it would be tough.

“When we won at Stamford Bridge [ a 2-0 victory in December ] it was because we played well and were together. Today was not the case.

“All I can do is apologize to the fans because it is not acceptable.
