Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday to postpone their coronation as new Premier League champions.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has reacted to the 2-1 defeat to Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.

“In general, the performance was good,” Guardiola said at his post-match press conference.

“We are sad because we lose – we wanted to close the Premier League today – but we have to be focused. Football is unpredictable and we have to focus on the game at Newcastle.

“I will not start thinking about the action and another one and another. It will never end. Everyone made a good contribution and we were incredibly focused.

“First goal, we didn’t block the shot well and the second we did not defend the penalty spot. There were many things but in general the game was good against a top side.

“Now we have six days, more than ever in this season. We will rest and then prepare for our final at Newcastle.”
