Guardiola will finally beat us. Even Mourinho's Chelsea showed more ambition without the ball at home. At least when we were poor with the ball we knew how to press before it all turned to shit. As a Chelsea fan today I feel embarrassed with the way my team has played! Embarrassing! Conte had nothing to show. Nothing. We've been punked and humiliated. I'm sure the team is embarassed as well.

One positive of this match is that Christiansen has been very good.  These are the best opponents I've seen him against and he's possibly been our best player.

A 21 year old centre back saw more of the ball than all our attacking players combined. COMBINED. At Stamford Bridge. Madness...

For all u english chelsea fans on here this game reminds me of england vs iceland. And chelsea are england. We offer nothing in midfield or going forward absolutely disgusting.

Long post coming. 

I really enjoy how silent Conte's thread was with the performance at Atletico, yet a bad game against Man City and suddenly it's the fault of the coach, he shouldn't be here much longer, blah blah blah, all that horeshit. First, if you hide away when examples contradict your view (like midweek) and only show up to voice how bad he's doing, thats a sign of someone who has already decided their view. Ignore the other side of the coin, im already sure when I stand. 

Secondly, his choice for this game have been spot on. He's been correct. Azpi and Rudiger on Sane and a midfield 3 to clog the middle. Yes, you will have less of the ball. But this is MAN CITY, understand the strengths and weaknesses of this squad for fucl sake. Poor luck with Morata going off, what do you want Conte to do? Play Batshuayi and have the ball bounce of him. By the way, last season when Costa wasnt available all 3 of Pedro, Willian and Hazard would start and the direct counters were quality. Or would you have him go 434? LOL. Yeh, lets have 2 CMs and hope Hazard and Willian can track the fullbacks and extra midfield man. Give me a break. If our attacking players knew the offside rule maybe this game would have turned out differently

What is even pissing me off the most is that it's not even effective counter-attacking football. It's not like the PSG - Bayern game the other day. It's just back-to-the-wall lump it aimlessly forward for 90 mins. No plan, no idea, nothing. It's like those Mourinho games in the Champions league in his 2nd spell. Hit and hope. What the fuck are we supposed to be watching! We aren't Huddersfield. This is a multi-million pound ensemble! I can't even discern what this team is supposed to be doing

Conte's teams don't know how to deal with high calibre possession sides. Tottenham have dominated us in virtually every game and they're not even high calibre but possession based. City is both and we were very lucky to beat them both times last season as they thoroughly outplayed us in both games. We aren't so lucky anymore. They've improved their team and they've fully implemented Pep's philosophy.

Fortunate it's only one. I could blame players but the person at fault is Conte.

I suppose 4 players not knowing the offside rule, cbs and cms standing around inviting pressure and WB's booting the ball in the air to Hazard skips blame. Must be Conte!
