A mischievous member of staff at the Etihad mocked Chelsea by playing One Step Beyond at the final whistle.

The Madness song is usually played over the public address system at Stamford Bridge – but Manchester City decided to rub salt in the wounds by playing it after hitting them for six.

Sky Sports host David Jones was quick to notice the cock-up and said: “They are even playing Chelsea’s song now.”

At the same time, The Times say a City official contacted the staff member in charge of the post-match music to tell them to turn it off.

It was played for around 30 seconds before Blue Moon, City’s usual post-match song, was played instead. The Times say an official then apologised to Chelsea.

Cesar Azpilicueta later delivered an apology of his own – this time to supporters. He branded Chelsea’s 6-0 hammering – their heaviest defeat since 1991 – as unacceptable and said sorry to club fans,

Defender Azpilicueta, who was given a torrid time by two-goal City winger Raheem Sterling, said: “It’s difficult to find the words to describe my feeling after the game.

“It is one of the worst nights in my career. It’s very frustrating, it’s very disappointing.

“When you lose 6-0 everyone has to accept they didn’t play well. The only thing I can say to the fans is sorry, because it’s not acceptable, and I feel sorry for all of them.”

It was the Blues’ third defeat in four Premier League games, coming after a 2-0 loss at Arsenal and a 4-0 thrashing by Bournemouth. The only relief during that period was a 5-0 victory over bottom side Huddersfield.

They were in trouble after just four minutes on Sunday as Sterling opened the scoring. Sergio Aguero then helped himself to a hat-trick and Ilkay Gundogan also got on the scoresheet before Sterling completed the rout with his second.

It could even have been worse for Chelsea as Aguero missed an early sitter and also hit the bar.

Azpilicueta, who conceded the penalty for Aguero’s third goal, said: “We have lost big games in the first minutes and we are conceding a lot of goals. We cannot accept that.

“We knew we had one of the best teams in front of us and we knew it would be tough.

“When we won against them at Stamford Bridge it was because we played a very good game all together. This time it was not the case. To lose in this way is very disappointing.”
