Conte defends tactics after Chelsea defeat

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola

"Honestly, I know what you are writing as a outcome of yesterday", Mourinho told reporters at Selhurst Park, 24 hours after Conte's side came under fire for their defensive approach in a 1-0 defeat at runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola's side produced a authoritative display as their efforts thwarted the reigning Premier League champions, with the west London club having failed to register a single shot on target throughout the entire match.

'I am a different player right now because of all the experiences I had and all the injuries I had, ' said the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder.

Eden Hazard felt an isolated figure as Chelsea slumped to a dismal defeat at Manchester City on Sunday. "We did not play a good game collectively, but we are going to work hard to do better next week". It is not the day and the moment to question whether we are behind the boss or not. The way the two teams are playing, you wouldn't bet against us getting half of them away to Stoke on Monday!

They remain alive in this season's competition but must find a way past Barcelona at the Nou Camp next week to reach the quarter-finals.

We have to go game by game, try to win all of them and qualify for the Champions League. Only at the end it went better: in the last 10-15 minutes we had more possession. Twenty-five points is a big gap and I think that we can have a regret for the other games but not for this.

Tests were done and it was found that they had listeriosis. "Hortgro believes it is a relief that the source has been found". The company operates across South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, Uganda and Zambia.

"When you play against a team that has shown to be stronger than you - because 25 points is a big difference - you have to think with your brain and not your head because otherwise you finish with a bad loss and that's not good for the players", he said.

Silva scored just a minute into the second half at the Etihad Stadium, just days after also netting against Arsenal, in a game that City dominated while Chelsea were poor and lacking confidence throughout the clash. "Chelsea gave them three points before they started".

And following the defeat, as quoted by the Metro, Hazard claimed the team's tactics were severely flawed and that he alone did not stand a chance.

"We tried to not concede the space to Manchester City for a long part of the match [and it] was good".

Chelsea had opted to play a front three of Pedro, Willian and Eden Hazard with the Belgian operating in the false nine position.
