Sarri's players and the club were humiliated by the 6-0 drubbing against Pep Guardiola's City at the weekend and have been pushed out of the top four by Manchester United's resurgence under caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Even the Italian seemed unsure in his post-match press conference, admitting his job is always at risk.
When asked whether he fears being sacked, Sarri replied: "I don't know, you have to ask the club".
Maurizio Sarri's team crashed to their heaviest loss since 1991 as the Premier League champions ran riot at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
"But I think all of us, not only the manager but all of the players, have been saying to focus on our job".
"But I don't know what to expect; people keep asking me what I think about the situation, but I think that's a question which needs to be put to the club." .
Hazard and Higuain share footballing language, says Sarri
Asked why he connects with Higuain better than with Morata, Sarri added: "Mentally, I think that we're the same". "You know my opinion, that City is the best team in Europe".
They next face Swedish side Malmo in their Europa League round of 32 game, a tie they should be expected to win. At the beginning [of the season] it worked. At the moment I don't know, maybe the goal we conceded after three minutes against this opponent was really very hard to play, not to give them spaces, so we were in trouble.
Jurgen Klopp's men maintain the advantage of a game in hand, but handed a reprieve by Liverpool's draws against Leicester and West Ham in recent weeks, City look determined to become the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League. Fellow fans need to call this out more, challenging the abusers in their midst whether in the stands or on social media.
Aguero had a simple task to make it 3-0 six minutes later when he pounced on Ross Barkley's slack header towards his own goal.
We played very well in those first 25-30 minutes and we were very happy with the score'. At the moment we have a big problem away [from home].
City and Liverpool are both on 65 points with City having the better goal difference although they have played one more game than their rivals. Now we play better at home than away. "We've got a lot to learn from this, and hopefully we will not repeat the same mistakes in the future".
