Chelsea old-boy De Bruyne gives City crucial win with stunning strike

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard will look to make an impact against Atletico Madrid

Manchester City looked in a class above the home side for the majority of the encounter and the Citizens' got the lead they deserved in the 67th minute. God gave him this talent and he must exploit it.

"I admire the Chelsea manager and the way they play".

"For sure there is disappointment for the result, but I think at the same time I'm pleased, I'm pleased for the commitment of my players", he said.

"We're in September. Chelsea won 13 games in a row last season".

"We're going to prove that we are ready for that and hopefully it will be a great game for us".

The 46-year-old failed to win a trophy in his first year in England, but City have emerged as early pace setters in the Premier League title race this season.

"Honestly, I am not anxious", added Conte. Honestly I am not anxious because I have players who try to make the best decision.

"He's a stable guy, so professional, he loves to play football, lives for that and is focused on that", Guardiola said. I like this behavior, this attitude. He can score, fights like the humblest guy around - I'm so happy for him.

Elsewhere, Stoke City overpowered Southampton 2-1, West Bromwich Albion ended their encounter with Watford 2-2, while Wet Ham United ran away with a lone goal against Swansea City.

"When I was first at Chelsea as a first-team player [under Mourinho in 2014-15] I wasn't even in the squad all the time".

There is one enforced change, with Andreas Christensen set to replace David Luiz, who will complete a three-match suspension.

"It was a simple tactical decision", Conte said. "In every game he finds a way to be decisive: to score or to make an assist for a team-mate", said the head coach.

"It's about mentality, it's about proving ourselves and everyone else that we are able to play the game we played over the last weeks against a top team".

Coming as a major blow to the visitors, Sergio Aguero is a big loss for Guardiola' s side as he his already making headlines since Thursday after sustaining rib injuries in an unfortunate auto crash. I think after this transfer market they improved a lot.
