Chelsea's 6-0 defeat at Manchester City at the weekend left Derby County coach Frank Lampard shocked but the former midfield great has distanced himself from talks of returning to Stamford Bridge as a possible replacement for manager Maurizio Sarri.
There was a long dressing-room inquest following the 4-0 loss at Bournemouth, but the response in a 5-0 win over Huddersfield was more about the standard of opposition than the improvement of Chelsea, as the subsequent loss at City showed.
"With my Chelsea hat on, 13 years a player there obviously, you have a feeling for it and it is not easy".
Alonso recently signed a new contract until 2023 with Chelsea and has continued to remain one of the certain starters under Maurizio Sarri this season. "The only thing I can say to the fans is sorry, because it's not acceptable, and I feel sorry for all of them".
Manchester City's irrepressible record goalscorer was close to his blistering best on Sunday as he bagged a hat-trick in the champions' scintillating 6-0 thrashing of Chelsea.
Kante said on chelseafc.com: "It's hard to explain".
Indeed, attention will now shift to billionaire Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, a man not known for his patience with underperforming managers in the Stamford Bridge hotseat. I said if he felt good he could take it.
City fullback Oleksandr Zinchenko came back into the side for the victory at Chelsea and can expect to play some part in their next two domestic cup games.
He said: "Something has changed, at the moment I am not able to see the reason, but I have to work for this".
"I want to study, I want to understand". They have since lost seven out of 21 in all competitions.
Sarri added: "I'm surprised because at the beginning of the season we played better away than at home so I don't know what has happened but at the moment we are in trouble. We've got a lot to learn from this, and hopefully we will not repeat the same mistakes in the future".
Among these players, Aguero has the lowest minutes per goal or assist ratio with 85 and he narrowly beats Henry's figure of 86.
