Drinkwater admits Chelsea tried to frustrate Man City


They are also 25 points behind leaders Manchester City, with Sunday's defeat leaving them on the verge of being mathematically eliminated from the title race.

"What really matters is to be champions", Guardiola told a news conference. "I never spoke we have to win the two games to achieve something. The way we play today is a bit similar to what we have done".

"When you work well, and there's great feeling between the manager and the club, you can work the way you want. when you link these two situations - a good manager and money to spend in the transfer market - this is the result".

Eden Hazard has spoken out about his lack of input in the game as he was deployed in the "false nine" position with Antonio Conte choosing to leave Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud on the bench. I'm not going to say we are not going to win. "After, at the end, we will see", he said. And after, the records will be a outcome.

Antonio Conte's side failed to register a single shot on target over the course of the match, and couldn't even put to even put a single shot together in the first half - the first time that has happened since Opta began compiling statistics more than fifteen years ago.

The first one saw City renew a record they had set back in October, by blowing away their record of most successful passes in a league game.

Chelsea have now lost four of their last five Premier League outings, with their other defeats coming against Bournemouth, Watford and Manchester United. "The quality. To have the distance between many teams now".

Their UEFA Champions League campaign could well come to an end on March 14, when they face Barcelona at the Camp Nou in the second leg of their last-16 tie.

"Our performance today was so good in terms of control and attacking at the right moment. We need momentum to reach fourth place".

"They chucked it in yesterday, those players".

Guardiola admitted he was surprised by how far ahead City are than their rivals.

"No way, no. Who could believe it?" he said.

"The pundit has to use the head to understand when you speak about tactics because I think you must have knowledge and not only to speak in a stupid way".

Hazard will be hoping to help Chelsea FC return to winning ways on Saturday evening when the Blues host Crystal Palace in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.
