Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has urged his teammates to believe they can compete against every team in the Premier League.
“We are a little bit disappointed,” Kante said, as he reflected on Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.
“We wanted to come for the win to keep our run going and to stay second in the table. I think it was a difficult game and we know City are a good team. We can be proud of what we did and we need to keep going for the next game.
“I think we had our chances. We could have scored to equalise but I think we are playing against a strong team. It was difficult, it was tight and they won. It is what we want. We want to fight against every opponent. We gave our best. Even Liverpool was a tight game.
“This is the way. We need to believe that we can compete against everyone in the league and give our best to see what we can achieve this season. I think they have played together for a long time with the manager and players.
“We can feel that they have a lot of ways to play together. They gave us many difficulties in their counterattacks. I think we could have done better in some ways but, in the end, it was a tight game.”
