A dream weekend in Barclays Premier League for Chelsea FC, in the game against Manchester City, a match worthy of all good words. Promising a game on life or death for the three points, Chelsea to hope for title and City to recover some points and restore its image.
The first part started in force with City all over Chelsea, but Cech was on duty every single time. Ancelotti’s boys made a good job defending the crown because, the second part, odds were about to flip sides.
Having a Drogba on the edge with fabulous passes, Luiz in 77th minute and Ramirez in the last minute took Chelsea on the podium on the overall rankings in Barclays Premier League, with nine points under Manchester United but with a match in hand. City is sliding for 10th position.
Carlo Ancelotti: “It was a very difficult game. We played a good game – we had focus, spirit and a good attitude. First half we had to be quicker in front to get the right solution. Defensively we were good. Man City lost a bit of power because they played on Thursday.”
