Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea FC

Manchester City came back from a four-point deficit behind Premiership leaders, Manchester United and are now only 1 point from the top of the table in the race for Premier League silverware this campaign.

Carlos Tevez and Roberto Mancini

Man City boss, Roberto Mancini, was thrilled with the result  that puts them only 1 point behind first place Man United and Carlos Tevez’s performance as well – although he does not believe his men deserved the win.  

“I’m happy because Carlos Tevez did well, also he’s not in good form. I don’t think he’s 100% fit but he knows football. I think we deserved to win the game because we had three or four chances in the first half and we missed them. But when they scored their goal, I don’t think we deserved to go behind, but we had the desire to win this game. It’s more than three points this game. After their goal I felt squeaky bum time!”

Chelsea interim boss Roberto di Matteo lost his first match since taking over after AVB left the club.

“I think we fought very hard and probably think we deserved a point at least. The penalty gave them a big lift because we were defending very well at that point and that gave them that little hope that they needed. It was a bit harsh. It was handball for sure, but I don’t think he could have made his arms disappear,” send di Matteo.
