Chelsea lost to Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte blamed Chelsea’s loss to Manchester City on tiredness and Chelsea’s inability to take our chances.

“It was a tough game but we know very well that Manchester City are a big team and it’s very difficult to play this type of game,” Conte said.

“I think that we gave everything today and I am happy with the commitment and desire from all my players. They had the will to fight against a very strong team.

“In this type of game you need time to recover, if you are tired it is not simple to go box to box.

“Today we created chances but we didn’t take them. Manchester City had chances and they took them.”

  1. Are we the only team playing the Champions League? Conte’s excuse is not tenable. His tactics was suspect in that match. Okay, if Conte thought the trip to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday was a problem, why did he leave out Pedro who did not play in Madrid from the starting line-up? ManCity simply took over the mid-field and dominated the game. Yes, our boys were sluggish, but the coach’s tactics let us down more.

  2. i have believed either we win we loose or we draw those are our expectations chelsea really did well all the players tried but it was so unfortunate that our best wasnt enough it doesnt stop us from joinning the epl title race as chelsea we are, lets keep on moving like a moving train more hard work lets correct our mistakes we are chelsea forever

  3. My advise, leave fabregas out in big games.

      Win loose or draw I remain a blue blood. I observed we used two many defenders hence allowed city enjoyed all possession.
      Secondly, fabregas over stayed on the pitch. Conte should have kept him out and bring him when we are enjoying possession not to start him in big games that can go either way.
      Using hazard upfront was another error. He is our best holding midfielder, conte should have kept him in the midfield and bring in either pedro or batshuayi when morata went off.
      Playing kante on the wing when we struggle to hold possession is disastrous. That also made city enjoyed all possession, fabregas is not defensive kante is.
      Lastly, the best form of defense is to attack. We have machinery to attack. Let’s attack every team we play in the EPL.
      Eat, Drink, and Sleep Chelsea.

    All we need is to support the team no matter what .pls conte is time the team start d winning run like the did last season .long live d blues am proud to b a Chelsea fan no matter what.

  5. I don’t quite agree with conte on this one…..we lost because of the formation….Chelsea were too defensive…..too many defenders….I believe we would have done better if conte allowed those boys to play their game…..I was dissapointed the moment I saw the line up I knew he wanted the boys to do more of defending rather than attacking. We need to consider attacking as a way of defending some times.

  6. yes yes leave Fabregas out in big games, thinking you were going to start Padro, William, Hazard and Zappacosta , willaim can play with Kante

  7. I totally agree with you guys and reaffirm that too many defenders, playing kante as a winger, leaving out Pedro were our major problems. Fabregas is a substitute material, substituting Morata with Willian leaving the squared with no striker hence no threat to City’s defense. The playing style was different from that during athletics.

    Conte most have himself to blame, his always afraid in big games that is all i have to say, but do matter what, we are still Chelsea for life

    That’s how a coach should protect his player. He a cepted the blame. He gave all but fail. I praise him
