Chelsea’s narrow 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday was our first loss in the league since 22 September.

There were plenty of positives to take from a performance in which we more than matched the reigning English champions.

According to Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori, Manchester City slowed the game down after taking the lead to make it difficult for Chelsea.

“We’re happy with the way we played but disappointed with the result,” Tomori said.

“It’s disappointing because we’ve been on a good run and we played well.

“In the first half, we created a lot of chances, managed to score a goal and came close a few more times but once you go behind against a team like Man City then it’s always difficult to get back into the game.

“We had a few half-chances in the second half but we just couldn’t convert them. They slowed the game down and made it a bit more difficult for us. We tried to up the energy but they’re a good team – they’re the champions for a reason.”
