Manchester City were absolutely destroyed by Chelsea, according to Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand.
“It’s a testament to the management of Conte to get his identity on this team,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“The intensity that they’re performing under at the moment is unbelievable; there’s a big contrast to last season, and this formation that they’ve got, he’s drilling them week in, week out.
“Not playing in Europe I think is giving them the edge. He’s been able to work on the training field and got his ideas across, and they’re going out there now and they’re putting teams to the sword.
“I mean, they’ve gone to the Etihad and absolutely destroyed this Manchester City team.”
