'Sarri has turned them into Arsenal': Jamie Carragher berates Chelsea

Chelsea fans were left wanting to restart the match after watching their team go 4-0 down against Manchester City after just 25 minutes. 
During half time on Sky Sports, pundit Jamie Carragher put a lot of the blame on manager Maurizio Sarri.
'The worst thing I can say is it looks like he's turned Chelsea into Arsenal,' he said, likening him to the old 'weak' Arsenal team.
Carragher called Manchester City's first half display 'outstanding,' however also berated Chelsea for their performance.
'I called a couple of Chelsea performances a disgrace going into this game, this is as bad as anything,' he said.
'Looking at Sarri, just over halfway through his first season, but the worst thing I can say is it looks like he's turned Chelsea into Arsenal.
'That Arsenal team that just used to get battered for the last seven or eight years away from home in big games because they were too weak.'
Raheem Sterling opened the scoring for the visitors after just four minutes before Sergio Aguero added two more shortly after. Ilkay Gundogan piled even more misery on Chelsea in the 25th minute.
Carragher called Marcos Alonso's defending 'criminal' for the first goal, while he and fellow pundit Graeme Souness believe that Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga should've been able to keep out a couple of the goals.
The second half didn't get much better for Chelsea, with Aguero scoring a penalty and completing his hat-trick after 56 minutes. Sterling then doubled his own tally 10 minutes from time.
'You could never say that about Chelsea, no matter what's gone on, that they've been "weak,"' said Carragher. 'We're watching a really weak football team here.'
