Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said they deserved to beat Chelsea, following their 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Former Blues midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne, netted the winner in the 67th minute of play to seal victory for the Etihad club and move them back to the top of the Premier League.
It was Chelsea’s second home defeat, after losing 3-2 to Burnley in their opening day fixture.
“There are no words to describe what Chelsea are and what they did last season,” Guardiola said in his post-match interview.
“It is important to win and especially with the way we played. In the first half we didn’t find the right position but in the second we were better. A big congratulations for the victory.
“Chelsea want to play and they are so so dangerous in attack but we kept the ball and when they had it we pressed as high as possible.
“Everyone is talking about Kevin De Bruyne. He makes absolutely everything. He is the most humble guy, I am so happy for him because I know how happy he is.
“The last few games Fabian Delph has played and he had an outstanding performance. He is a guy that doesn’t lose the ball he is aggressive and clever. I am so happy for him after last season and the way he played last season.”
