Chelsea 2 – Manchester City 1
Forget Manchester City‘s Premier League title hopes, Pep Guardiola’s side are now in serious danger of missing out on a top four spot.
It has not been a great week at all for Manchester City after the international break, with a draw at Arsenal and defeat at Chelsea.
Granted, they are two tough away games and City had their moments, but one point from six has brought out Pep Guardiola’s critics once again.
Antonio Conte does the double over Pep Guardiola
There were a number of damming statistics thrown at Pep Guardiola after the Chelsea defeat.
Antonio Conte is the first manager ever to beat Pep Guardiola home and away in a league season.
Plus, this is the first time Pep Guardiola has lost six league games in a season.
City are now in fourth, and with Champions League qualification far from assured, it is difficult to see if any progress has been made since Manuel Pellegrini left the club.
As a result, there were plenty of Chelsea fans (and others) laying into Pep Fraudiola…
First time Guardiola has lost six in a league season, first time he's lost twice to one manager in a league season. Symbolic and significant

I'm reading Guardiola needs 2 transfer windows to sort City out. Why? He had 2 before he arrived.

Both Guardiola and Mourinho insisted this season wasn't going to be about their rivalry. They were right. It's been all about Conte

Pep Guardiola has lost 6 league games in a season for the 1st time in his managerial career (previous most losses in a season, 5) #PL

Fraudiola exposed again. He spent £174m last summer so let nobody defend him saying it isn't his squad.

Fraudiola has lost more games than José

City would've won with a good keeper in goal last night…and it's hilarious #Fraudiola
