Manchester City lost their grip at the top of the table as they were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

It was the first time Pep Guardiola’s side were losing this season and it ended their unbeaten run of 21 games.

After the game, Guardiola went to greet the Chelsea players and staff, and as he made his way towards the tunnel, he was faced with several members of Chelsea’s coaching staff.

Guardiola went to shake the hands of the Sarri’s assistants, but appeared to have been offended after Chelsea’s fitness coach, Paolo Bertelli, began speaking to him.

The City manager immediately withdrew his hand and appeared riled as the Italian continued to speak.

Guardiola hailed Chelsea’s performance after the game and also hailed his players for a good game. Guardiola also bemoaned his side’s inability to score despite creating chances.

He said in his post-match conference at Stamford Bridge, “The result is the result, they scored two goals, congratulations Chelsea for the victory.

“We came here with an idea, we had a great first half but conceded the goal.

“They are so strong, the first half and last 25 we were fantastic and it was a joy to see my players and they showed incredible personality to play here.

“We created enough chances to score, unfortunately, it didn’t happen. The way we played today was incredible.”
