Pep Guardiola focused on titles, not records after win against Chelsea

Shannon Reynolds | 05 March, 2018, 04:38

But which Premier League stars were the top performers throughout February?

City boss Pep Guardiola, his yellow ribbon again briefly visible before covering it up with a scarf, watched as City controlled possession and Chelsea struggled to cross the halfway line.

Antonio Conte insisted that he would have been "stupid" to "play open" against Manchester City after watching his team suffer a limp 1-0 defeat against the Premier League leaders.

"Do you think this?" We have had some great moments and we have had three or four late wins, injury-time wins, and you can't explain what that does for your confidence. "I thought Pedro and Willian played a fantastic game". He's in full confidence as he's playing in the best team in the Premier League this year.

They now host the Premier League champions knowing a win would move them ever closer to succeeding Antonio Conte's side.

Chelsea won this fixture 3-1 last season, but haven't won back-to- back league games at the Etihad Stadium since a run of four wins between 2005 and 2008.

City's hunger and desire are that strong.

Conte expects City to build on their scintillating second season under Guardiola, contrasting the situation with his own at Chelsea, where the Italian appears to be on the brink of a summer exit. No way. Who could believe it?

As of Saturday night's game, they are the only team in the National Basketball Association not allowing 100+ points a game (99.4). After three, with an 11-point lead, you'd think a team with the Spurs pedigree and reputation would be in good shape.

Alibaba Group (BABA) Shares Gap Down to $179.76
The stock of Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) has "Overweight" rating given on Tuesday, August 22 by Atlantic Securities. Bamco Inc who had been investing in 2U Inc for a number of months, seems to be bullish on the $4.49 billion market cap company.

"Twenty-five points is a big gap and I think that we can have a regret for the other games but not for this one".

The first half was played nearly entirely in the Chelsea half as City enjoyed the lion's share of possession, but found it hard to penetrate the visiting defence. "To have the distance, 25 to Chelsea, 33 to Arsenal, (20) to Tottenham is a lot".

It was the Portugal winger's second goal in as many games and he is impressing now he has nailed a place in the starting team following injuries to Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling in recent months.

'This is woeful from Chelsea, it really is. Moses blazed his shot way wide.

Tactically, his approach was limited with Eden Hazard playing up front as a false nine and Alvaro Morata on the bench.

The possibility remains open that City could win the league title at home to United on April 7. Guardiola's side is showing no mercy on its way to a second trophy of the season, after the League Cup last weekend.

"We tried to not concede the space to Manchester City for a long part of the match [and it] was good". "We make an unbelievable high pressing". We didn't concede one shot on target and we created enough chances to win'.

Chelsea are at risk of missing out on Champions League football next term, falling into the Europa League or being absent from European competition altogether.
