The Citizens were outclassed by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and it was one of the rare occasions where Pep Guardiola’s men have failed to score. Manchester City have been flying since the opening match day game against Arsenal and from then, they have gone on to net 45 goals, the most in the Premier League.
With the loss, it meant that Liverpool’s earlier victory over Bournemouth in the day saw the Reds overtake Manchester City to take the top spot of the table rankings this weekend. Only one point separates the top two sides and there is an eight point gap difference between leaders Liverpool and Arsenal, who are in fifth.They absorbed all the pressure that the Citizens were exerting on them before successfully breaking out for a counter attack. Chelsea made their chances count whereas City failed to do so. Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez all had chances to get their names on the scoresheet, but they failed to do so.
In Guardiola’s words, “ We were outstanding except for 58 minutes”. It was a match where his players were expected to win but the Blues had other plans in mind and successfully stopped them. The former Barcelona manager continued to look optimistic in the post-match press conference as he explained that his aim is to win the title, not become ‘Invincibles’ in England.
Manchester City are expected to return to winning ways when they host Everton at the Etihad Stadium for the next domestic game.Now, Liverpool remain the only side unbeaten in the Premier League.
