Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri has singled out two of his players for praise after their 2-0 victory over Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Sarri praised the performance of N’golo Kante and Jorginho after the win.
Chelsea broke City’s Premier League unbeaten run this season on Saturday.
The Blues rose from the disappointment of losing at Wolves in midweek to end City’s 21-game unbeaten league run.
Pep Guardiola’s side were struck in the first half as N’Golo Kante fired high past Ederson from Eden Hazard’s pass.
The Blues improved after the break, securing the win with 12 minutes left when David Luiz’s glancing header following a corner bounced in off the far post.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, Sarri said, “I think that today he scored by chance because they played very close to Jorginho more than in the other matches,” talking about Kante.
“He defended very well, some counters were good and he was in the box in the first goal but I think that today he played in the right position, very close to Jorginho.
“Because we were in trouble to put pressure to take defenders in the opponent half so we had to defend in our half but it wasn’t a choice.
“We know very well that the ball possession is usual for us, today was a problem and so we knew very well that maybe there were more spaces for counters but it wasn’t a total choice.”
