Antonio Conte looks on as his team were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City on Sunday

Antonio Conte looks on as his team were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City on Sunday

All things considered, Conte is a wonderful manager.

I would argue that playing your best player out of position is inexcusable.

Thereafter, City were quite content to keep possession as Chelsea still refused to abandon their cautious approach. It was all very passive.

Ahead of that game, the Arsenal Supporters' Trust (AST) held their annual general meeting.

Conte did nothing, though. The 23-year-old midfielder added, "Chelsea can play the way they want".

"What really matters is to be champions". They got their reward because they went 1-0 up and almost held on to win.

His gloved passing works beautifully in conjunction with the jetted heels of Leroy Sané on the other flank.

Hazard has, however, admitted that he feels more comfortable in a wide berth, with a playmaking post offering him greater freedom to drift and dictate the play.

Eden Hazard felt an isolated figure as Chelsea slumped to a dismal defeat at Manchester City on Sunday.

"I think the pundit has to use the head when you speak tactics because you must have the knowledge to speak about tactics".

"We need four victories to be champions, it is in our hands and if our behaviour is like today we will be champions". With his performance against Manchester City, the doubters will be few.

"Chelsea have got to win that".

The German winger sparked the danger once more moments later as his pass picked out Bernardo Silva via a dummy from David Silva, but the Portuguese blazed high and wide on his favoured left foot. Knocking the ball about between their back line, the home side were in no rush to push forward and could comfortably maintain possession. Sterling was missing for City's last two league games as well as the Carabao Cup final victory against Arsenal.

Conte's side were flattered by the scoreline at the Etihad Stadium. He dealt with the pressure well and never looked afraid to bring a ball down and play from the back. The Hazard experiment as a false "9" failed against Barcelona and I do not see why Conte continues to remain defiant. "Gaps can close, positions can change and we need to make that change", he said. It's frustrating because we could have drawn 0-0 and that wouldn't have been a bad result'.

"To be honest with you, it disgusts me", he said on Sky Sports .

"Not only does Conte risk losing his players and tarnishing last season's triumph, but he is also damaging his reputation", Redknapp said.

Guardiola has splashed huge cash at City prompting criticisms that he has abandoned the youth system.

What next for Chelsea?

Just to demonstrate City's dominance this season further, the Manchester giants now hold five of the the top ten most passes attempted and completed in Premier League history. Besides that, he did okay in goal and distributed decently.

Neville took aim at Antonio Conte for his tactics, stating: "I'm not sure how the game just drifted, drifted, drifted for 90 minutes with no reaction from the sidelines". Not one of them is running.
