Manchester City lost the leadership of the Premier League this Saturday by falling 2 goals by 0 to the team led by Italian Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge. Finishing the good strike 15 days of unbeaten City and leaving the Premier to Liverpool.
Sarri’s Chelsea, that during the whole course had challenged on the top of the possession ranking and passed to Guardiola’ team, gave the ball to the ‘citizens’ … and won. Its plan went perfectly, with Kanté, Jorginho and Kovacic limited the City to only 4 shots in the match. Without a center forward its attack was as effective as its defense, ending the first time with Hazard founding Kanté, who made, coming from behind, the 1-0. A bucket of cold water just before the break.
The second time was equal to the first, the City with the ball without creating much danger and a comfortable Chelsea coming out against. The Blue’s would end up defining the game with a cross pass from Hazard that David Luiz sent to the networks.
After seven consecutive victories in Premier and 14 games without losing, Guardiola’s team slipped. In all their games away from home in this English league had conceded two goals … and in the Bridge, they received the same.
The loss of the unbeaten bothered Guardiola so much that he made an ugly unsportsmanlike gesture to a worker of Chelsea’s coaching staff after the defeat. The coach of Manchester City greeted the members of the coaching staff of Sarri when shaking hands with one of its members, Pep pouted and released his hand in a bad way and disgust in the face. Proving that the coach’s humility is as false as Nicky Minaj’s buttocks.
