N’Golo Kante’s goal wasn’t enough as the Blues lost 2-1 to Manchester City on Saturday, our first defeat since September 22.
Chelsea winger Willian praised Kante for his performance against Manchester City.
“He played well,” Willian said. “He was in control in midfield with Jorginho and Kovacic.
“They all played well and I think we deserved a better result but City have a very strong team. Now we need to carry on and forget this game and move on to the next one.”
Chelsea’s next match comes on Wednesday night away in Spain against Valencia, where a win by two goals or more would guarantee a place in the Champions League knockout stage.
“That will be a difficult game as well,” Willian added.
“We have to go there with the same mentality and try to win this game.”
