Guardiola: Chelsea Are an Incredible Team

Pep Guardiola says he was impressed by Chelsea despite Manchester City’s 2-1 win over Frank Lampard’s men on Saturday.

City only had 46.74 possession against the in-form Blues, the lowest recorded by a Guardiola side in his 381 top-flight matches as a manager, but they still collected a crucial three points.

N'Golo Kante had given Chelsea a deserved lead by squeezing a clever finish past returning goalkeeper Ederson, but Kevin De Bruyne's deflected shot levelled the score before Riyad Mahrez curled in what proved the winner.

"After we conceded the goal, we suffered a little bit and in the best moment we had we scored from Kevin," Guardiola told Sky Sports. "After, we missed a lot of chances and the position for the last pass.

"Second half we controlled it. We lost some balls in a difficult position. They are masters to read the pass and to read the interception. [Chelsea] are a top side but we fought a lot.

"They are so good, they are an incredible team. It's Chelsea. When you see in the last 20 years, Chelsea aren't a bad side. The last six or seven years City won more titles but before that it was Manchester United and Chelsea – they were the best."
