Liverpool top after Chelsea inflict Manchester City’s first league defeat

Share

City's unbeaten start to the season came to an end with a 2-0 defeat against Chelsea as they slipped below Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

The ground moved, the soil felt like it would crack in the 78th minute when, after N'Golo Kante's excellent first-half goal, David Luiz scored Chelsea's second - with his team playing with such skill and belief you knew that even...

"But before we need to know the improvement of every player in the team".

A Chelsea spokesman said: "We're aware of reports and video footage".

Hazard featured in a central attacking role as Sarri shuffled his pack, with Olivier Giroud named on the bench and Alvaro Morata left out of the squad. And when Hazard was finally fed the ball to feet inside the City box, his pass picked out Kante, who side-footed the ball high past Ederson.

The Brazilian goalkeeper had been a spectator before picking the ball out of his net, but was called into action again to keep his side in the game just after the break when he palmed away Willian's free-kick.

"There is no sport in the world where one team is always winning", the City manager continued.

However, Pep Guardiola's men missed the injured Sergio Aguero up front as Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane wasted early chances.

It has meant that Guardiola has had to continue to rely heavily on Fernandinho in the midfield anchor role, with the Brazil worldwide the only outfield player to have started all 15 of City's league games to date. "We did everything right up until the last minute".

"I have played against him quite a few times over the summer and at the start of the season", Stones said. "They have great players, so we had a lot of humility and tried to take our chances to score, so we did our plan well".

"That is what's going to happen in the future on the biggest stages but the way we played today was incredible". We try to be champion.

Luiz said he felt Chelsea had beaten "the best team in Europe at the moment". In the last two matches we played well for 55, 60 minutes, then (after) the first difficulty we suffered a blackout. "When we won, nobody asked me about the people that are not here", he told a post-match news conference.

However, despite masterminding his first ever win over Guadiola, Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri still believe his side is not well equipped to challenge for the Premier League title.
