Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has said that his team defeated Chelsea 3-1 in the Premier League on Sunday night because his players understood each other and played really well.
Guardiola also singled out two of his players, Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva for praise following Man City’s victory against Frank Lampard’s men.
Man City defeated Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge, thanks to three goals from Ikay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne.
Callum Hudson-Odoi did score a late consolation goal for Chelsea.
“The important thing today is not just the result but especially the way we play. We understand each other. The players played really well,” Guardiola was quoted by Man City’s official website as saying after the match.
“We have known each other for a long time. The idea is important. We start at the keeper and end with the wingers and strikers, and today we were able to do it.”
“Kevin can play in many positions”, he added.
“For the way he has been training, we wanted more solid people in midfield and Bernardo is more solid in those areas. We wanted to do this to counter-attack our midfield through wingers, with him.
“He [De Bruyne] is so good, with his energy to run in behind. He did it really. He can play there perfectly. He can play as a winger, attacking midfielder.
“There are no doubts. We are talking about Kevin De Bruyne. Words are not necessary.”
Man City’s next game is against Brighton on Wednesday.
