Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, has revealed that it was his team’s mentality that helped them beat Manchester City on Saturday.
Chelsea inflicted City first Premier League defeat of the season.
With the defeat, the champions were knocked off the top of the table by Liverpool.
Sarri’s men bounced back from the disappointment of losing at Wolves in midweek to end City’s 21-game unbeaten league run.
City were struck by a Chelsea smash-and-grab right on half-time as N’Golo Kante fired high past Ederson from Eden Hazard’s pass.
Chelsea gained confidence and momentum and improved after the break, securing the win with 12 minutes left when David Luiz’s glancing header following a corner bounced in off the far post.
Sarri told post match conference that he is “very happy with the team’s mentality, the way the they played.
“We fully deserved 2-0 win over Manchester City.”
