"It's a pity because I think at the end of the game we are disappointed with the final result".

He described the performance as "almost the perfect game" but talk quickly drifted back to his future when he was interviewed by the Italian media.

"I said very clearly, I have a contract to 2019".

The Brazilian fared better in the 62nd minute when he calmly found the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

The Spaniard's cheetah-like reflexes averted a pasting and saved Jose Mourinho from an even greater shellacking in the media.

"It's no problem for me, in fact I really like pressure".

Still, without Benjamin Mendy, City will again be without his replacement Fabian Delph who was given a straight red on Monday, but their confidence might have taken a knock.

"It's no problem for me".

"In games like that you have to be 100 per cent focused", he said. "All parties must be happy".

His arrival at Stamford Bridge was typically understated and set the tone for a career which has been a showcase of consistent excellence.

Eden Hazard admits to feeling "comfortable" and capable of contributing more to the Chelsea cause when operating out wide, rather than as a false nine.

"What I love about him is that he's got a picture of what's going on after touching the ball", added Ferdinand. I think about my family, the people that stay with me all of the time and support me.

It was not thought that the Spaniard would immediately challenge for a first-team place, with Branislav Ivanovic and Ashley Cole occupying both full-back slots with John Terry and Gary Cahill's positions also seemingly secured. But it's the manager who has the final word.

Florian Thauvin is arguably the French league's best player so far this season, and the skillful winger gets a chance to upstage Neymar when Marseille visits league leader Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday. We have to give the maximum.

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, has vowed not to allow critics derail him as he bids to work hard so as to make the cut for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

"The next game is always the most important because it's where you can get the three points".
