Guardiola closes book on Manchester City's title hopes

Chelsea will require 18 more points to win the Premier League title, manager Antonio Conte told his players after their 2-1 win over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

"I worked very hard for that one opportunity and within the conditions that we available to me".

But Gerrard still thinks we're in a better position than rivals Arsenal and Manchester United, who now sit in fifth and sixth respectively. Tottenham's result is important, but the most important results is ours.

Manchester City have dropped to fourth place after last night's defeat. As he tends to do, Hazard produced a great overall performance, including scoring both goals in Chelsea's 2-1 win.

City welcome Hull City to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, their sights firmly trained upon securing a top-four spot after Chelsea extinguished any lingering title hopes in midweek. "And especially we are so polite when we win, especially that". But it's true that after eight games if they don't win the Premier League, it will be tough for them to accept.

"The Premier League is gone now".


It's a good win at a time of the season which is very important.

And when you consider that Pedro had to fill in for Moses against Palace, and struggled at times in the defensive third of the field, Conte needs a player like Kolasinac to not only provide adequate cover, but also put pressure on those in the first team.

"It was a good win for us, above all because you played after a bad defeat against Crystal Palace where I think we didn't deserve to lose. Hopefully next season we'll be stronger".

"We played with huge personality and not waiting".

"It's a massive incentive to get out of the bottom three, Boro was a six-pointer", he said.

"The only message I have given them is that Tottenham must win eight games". Courtois saved from Leroy Sane and Kevin de Bruyne and it was truly end-to-end, as City's 2-2 draw at Arsenal had been on Sunday, more of a basketball game. "We must get more expertise in this, for sure". When there is the possibility to send some message, I think these players don't need this message. "When I signed two years ago... as you know it's not been as good as I'd want it to be, but he's always been one of those guys who's comforted me when I've had injuries or niggles".
