Man City Edge Closer To Title With Win Over Chelsea

Nemanja Matic is enjoying working under Jose Mourinho again at Manchester United

"It was not enough but City deserved to win".

Hazard suggested his height made it hard to compete with the City centre-backs Nicolás Otamendi and Aymeric Laporte.

"But you need rhythm, and to always play seriously".

He is now one of the first names on the team sheet for Slavisa Jokanovic and is doing his best to help the club back to the top flight. Silva waited a few seconds and passed the ball back to a teammate.

The 27-year-old didn't exactly look thrilled about his early exit against Manchester United and was even less pleased when he was subbed against City during the Blues' 1-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium, yesterday.

Chelsea next play Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge next weekend, followed by an away trip to the Camp Nou in their second leg, last-16 clash against Barcelona in the Champions League. Due to the Blues' issues at centre-forward, manager Antonio Conte has been playing Hazard out of his natural position on the wing, and instead using him as a false nine.

"We were better with the ball, but we needed to do that during the whole match".

Conte arrived at Chelsea promising to turn the side from a "small flame. into a blazing inferno".

But the way goalkeeper Loris Karius and a back four of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, Virgil Van Dijk and Andy Robertson combined at Anfield against a Newcastle side managed by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, suggested the Merseysiders might at last be tightening up in defence.

Trump slumps on Forbes billionaires list
Trump also shelled out $25 million in settling lawsuits that alleged his Trump University real estate courses defrauded students. Sixty-seven percent of the 2018 list are self-made billionaires, and a record 255 women are included in this year's rankings.

What do you think of his comments, and how bad was Chelsea's performance? Conte set the team up that way, so he has to take the blame.

Wise, 51, was left bemused as to why it took the Chelsea manager almost 80 minutes to bring on an established striker - Olivier Giroud in the 79th minute - despite City's distinct dominance of possession. We make an awesome high pressing, they could not contact with Hazard, Willian or Pedro (Rodriguez). We have to respect that and give our best, no matter who is on the pitch.

As dress rehearsals go, it was complete failure.

It's worth bearing in mind that this was one of the most important games of the season.

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has stepped up his recovery from a long-term knee injury by returning to training with the Premier League leaders.

For Chelsea, it was death by almost a thousand passes.

"In watching football my whole life, 35-40 years, there's not a lot you've never seen before", he said.

Many of City's opponents know the feeling.

"To think about joining these kind of teams you have to be there for a long time".
