Jamie Carragher says Maurizio Sarri has turned Chelsea into the new Arsenal

Speaking at half-time of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Manchester City, Carragher said the Blues’ performance was a ‘disgrace’.

Sarri’s side trailed 4-0 at the interval as goals from Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan put City in complete control.

Asked to assess the opening 45 minutes at the Etihad, Carragher said: ‘City have been outstanding.

‘I’ve called Chelsea a disgrace before this season… this is as bad as anything we’ve seen from them

‘Looking at Sarri… okay, he’s only been there half a season. But the worst thing I can say is he’s turning Chelsea into Arsenal.

‘[The Arsenal] who got battered away from home because they were too weak. We’re watching a really weak football team here.’

Former Premier League striker Dion Dublin also praised City’s first-half performance against Chelsea.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live: ‘City started incredibly well. Chelsea looked like rabbits in the headlights.

‘I still believe Chelsea have a part to play so City still have to do things the right way. They’ve been outstanding.’

Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League for the first time since December on Wednesday after beating Everton.

Liverpool regained their position at the top of the table on Saturday, however, with a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth.
