Former Cameroon and Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o has reacted to Chelsea's 6-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

On his visit to South Africa, the former Chelsea marksman admitted that Pep Guardiola's side plays a high pressing game, but added that he was amazed by how Maurizio Sarri's men conceded a whopping six goals in one game.

"You can lose matches sometimes, but at this level, you have to be very careful," Eto'o told the South African media on Monday.

"Conceding six goals! It is true that City are playing at an unbelievably high level at the moment, and we were not expecting anything less from a coach like Pep Guardiola, but those goals came through due to individual errors and a lack of concentration. At some point, we all know how that can cost you," said Eto'o.

Rudiger confronts Chelsea fan after Manchester City defeat

Rudiger confronts Chelsea fan after Manchester City defeat Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger was involved in a heated exchange with a supporter, following Sunday’s 6-0 defeat at Manchester City. The Blues were humiliated at the Etihad, suffering one of their worst-ever Premier League losses and dropping to sixth in the Premier League table. According to Goal, tensions spilled over after the final whistle, with Rudiger clashing with a travelling supporter. The German walked to the away end to give his shirt to a fan, apologising for the result and being applauded by the majority. One angry fan had to be restrained by security, however, as he hurled abuse at the German centre-back.

— Chelsea were set to sign Samuel Eto ’ o on a stunning £7 million one-year deal yesterday after conceding defeat in their pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. Eto ’ o , the 32-year-old Cameroon forward, is taking a huge pay cut from the £17m a year that made him the world’s best paid

When asked if Chelsea can bounce back from the humiliating defeat, Eto'o said: "Sure, Chelsea can recover from the defeat. Football is an eternal recommencement. In football, if you can’t get up when you fall then you are not fit for it."

Chelsea conceded 10 goals in their last two away matches in the Premier League which has raised eyebrows on whether or not Sarri is still the right man for the managerial job.

The Blues lost 4-0 to Bournemouth last week before returning to winning ways in style with a 5-0 win over Huddersfield.

They face Malmo in the Uefa Europa League on Thursday before welcoming Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup next week Monday.
