Twitter exploded as Manchester City demolished Chelsea in the FA Cup

Chelsea's feasible hopes of winning silverware this season went down the pipe as they suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Manchester City in the third round of the FA Cup.

The teams faced each other in consecutive games as they squared off in the Premier League this past week. While Graham Potter's side were arguably the better team in their 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge on January 6, they were absolutely brushed aside at the Etihad Stadium tonight (January 8) by Pep Guardiola's side.

Riyad Mahrez, scorer of the only goal in the previous game, opened the scoring for the Cityzens yet again with his 23rd minute goal. A majestic free kick from the Algerian maestro broke the deadlock.

2022 FIFA World Cup winner Julian Alvarez added to the lead from the penalty spot in the 30th minute of the game. Phil Foden added to Graham Potter's side's misery with his goal in the 38th minute of the game before Mahrez added another in the 85th minute, this time from the penalty spot.

The Blues were once again hapless in front of goal and failed to come up with any substantial attack. They are now almost guaranteed to go trophyless this season. Fans moaned about the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel as the club's manager earlier in the season and took swipes at Graham Potter

Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter after Manchester City demolished Chelsea in the FA Cup:

Graham Potter is a disgrace. Don't even support Chelsea and it's triggering me a bit seeing him in charge of them. From Mourinho, Conte and Tuchel to this mug. 💀 Fuck knows how their sensible fans must feel. Hope this helps
Sorry Thomas Tuchel, we've seen the light. 😥
RIYAD MAHREZ. UNREAL 🎯(via @EmiratesFACup)

Julián Álvarez!
Julián Álvarez has now scored in every competition he has played in for Manchester City:◉ Premier League◉ Champions League ◉ League Cup◉ FA Cup And he also scored in the Community Shield. 👏
al fin julian alvarez de titular!!!
From where I’m seating it looked like Riyad Mahrez asked Julian Alvarez if he wanted to take the penalty while the referee was checking the VAR screen and gave him the ball when Alvarez said yes. Class.
Julian Alvarez was signed for just €21 million!!! What a player he is, and what a superstar he will become.Absolute workhorse and can play across the front three, would trust him to do a job wherever you put him.
Julian Alvarez 💎
🇦🇷 Julián Álvarez convirtió goles en TODAS las competencias que disputó con el Manchester City:✅ Premier League✅ Champions League✅ FA Cup✅ Community Shield✅ Copa de la LigaY llegó hace solo 6 meses. 🤘🏼

Nobody: Thomas Tuchel after Todd Boehly sacked him from Chelsea and appointed Graham Potter
Graham Potter is defo playing all these academy players to get the fans onside 😭🤣
I believe Graham Potter will come out good at Chelsea, the squad is a mess and this will take at least two years to fix, but giving him such lengthy contract was pure stupidity.
4 more for Graham Potter to do more Trust the process Abidjan Blue Boys 🤝
@TheChelseaForum Toddy Boehly is giving a standing ovation as Graham Potter humiliates the Chelsea crowd.
@CFCPys And Graham Potter to.. and sign Zinedine Zidane as a manager
50% of Riyad Mahrez's goals for #mcfc this season have come against Chelsea…
Chelsea’s season already over in January, out of the Fa cup, out of the league cup and 10th. This downfall is beautiful man

Chelsea's campaign goes from bad to worse with the loss against Manchester City

Manchester City v Chelsea: Emirates FA Cup Third Round
Manchester City v Chelsea: Emirates FA Cup Third Round

Graham Potter has now been in charge of Chelsea for 18 games. The Blues have won eight, drawn four, and lost six of those games. The record is far from ideal for the former Brighton & Hove Albion manager.

The Blues are currently in the tenth spot in the Premier League table. While they are in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, given the west London team's form and the prowess of other teams, it's highly unlikely that the Blues will end up as winners.

The FA Cup was the only logical competition that Chelsea could have won. The FA Cup defeat is certainly a crushing blow for the Blues. It is also an eye-opener for fans and Graham Potter. The coach has a massive job on his hand to turnaround the team's fortunes as the season enters the decisive stage.

Potter's side will return to action against Fulham on January 12 in a Premier League away clash against Fulham.
