Carragher: Chelsea 'will have a major problem' with Hazard

Ilkay Gundogan No easing up from Manchester City

Ilkay Gundogan No easing up from Manchester City

Pep Guardiola appeared in a good mood following his Manchester City side's comfortable 1-0 win over reigning Premier League champions Chelsea, but insisted he is now not thinking about his team potentially breaking the record points tally in a season.

After the game, the Belgian said that he felt like he didn't even play a game of football- that's how inconsequential he felt his impact was on Sunday afternoon.

Such is City's mastery of both passing and pressing that its rivals are suffocated into submission.

Conte's tactical disposition was to contain Manchester City's sleek and flashy football other than to go for a win.

"When you play against City you have to use your brain, otherwise you risk finishing the game in a bad way and to lose 3-0 or 4-0".

"City are the best team in the Premier League by a mile". The rare times that Chelsea's players got the ball on Sunday, they didn't know what to do with it and, under pressure, gave it away cheaply. In the same way, a Christensen mistake had cost City in their Barcelona tie, he cost them here as failed to deal with a long pass.

"I think the target was to be solid until the end and then try to put one in at the end".

"I didn't expect it after what happened in the previous season - to have the distance, 25 to Chelsea, 33 to Arsenal, 19 to United, who play tomorrow, 18 to [Liverpool]".

The Sky Sports pundits were highly critical of the Chelsea players in their performance at the Etihad Stadium, with Conte offering these comments when informed of the comments from Neville and his fellow analysts.

"We haven't played a good game and for me personally it's hard to play a good game when you only touch the ball three times".

'Honestly, 100 per cent he will have been. "That is what I want to see from my team".

One worrying factor about the game was Eden Hazard's position on the field of play.

'Running around there on your own not getting a touch or a kick of the ball.

'And tonight [Monday] I think Roy [Hodgson] was strong.

"You have to control their main players and that's what we did".
