Chelsea vs Manchester City: 2017/18 Season
Last season’s match allowed Manchester City to edge forward with the team winning 1:0 against Chelsea. Though only a small win, it was a win nonetheless which allowed proud Cityzens to climb to the top of the table – something that can only make victory sweeter.
Unfortunately, Chelsea had little to offer in the grand scheme of things. Thus, with nil to their name in this match, it meant they had failed to score in consecutive Stamford Bridge home league games for the first time since 2012.
Disappointing for Chelsea, however, manager Antonio Conte commended his team members stating that ‘we have to accept the result because today we gave everything.’ ‘Everything’ was just not enough for a determined and driven Manchester City.
Confident manager Pep Guardiola cheered on his team, remarking how the players ‘showed in the first minute that we were coming here to win the game.’ A resilient mentality that Chelsea failed to conquer.
Manchester City vs Chelsea: 2016/17 Season
Despite Manchester City claiming a sixty one percent possession rate, Chelsea still managed to work tactically with their possession beating the Cityzens 3:1. In fact, the only goal to Manchester City’s name was a regrettable own goal from Chelsea’s Gary Cahill.
Certainly an own goal has the potential to rattle the confidence of any football team, yet Chelsea would not be defeated and managed to bring everything back in good time. Manchester City were eager with fourteen shots, however The Blues ten shots was all that was required to win this match.
The game took a sour turn for the worst, with players getting into nasty physical altercations. This resulted in red flags being given to both Aguero and Fernandinho.
Still, a well-deserved victory for Chelsea’s Blues in spite of any disgraces.
