Speaking to BT Sport after the win against Manchester City, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said:
“” because it is not very easy to win against Manchester City or Pep Guardiola.
“I am happy with the mentality of the team in this match.
“It is difficult for us to find motivation but when we are, we are a very strong team.
“Today we played with a very good level of application, determination and the right level of aggressiveness.
“My players have to continue like this. We had some problems in the first 30 minutes because Eden Hazard played like a striker for the first time and in the defensive movement we weren’t perfect.
“We started well in the second half and in the end we deserved to win. I think he [Hazard] had some problems only for the last 20 minutes.
“He played very well and deserved to score. I am really happy with his first match in this position.
“It is difficult to play in the defensive line when it is not working. It was working well today so it is easier for the centre-backs to play a good match.”
