Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has admitted that after his side beat the Blues 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are “suffering”
After struggling to avoid City’s dominant first-half in West London, Frank Lampard’s side is now without a win in three Premier League matches.
Goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden, and Kevin De Bruyne meant that the injury-time strike of Callum Hudson-Odoi was nothing but a consolation for the hosts.
Speaking after the game, City Manager Guardiola acknowledged that Sunday’s opposition is currently struggling with its shape, but also suggested that if he were Lampard, he would not be too worried.
The former manager of Barcelona said: “Chelsea is one of the strongest teams, we cannot deny it. They are suffering the last games, but you see the quality of the players, of the bench, it’s good.”
Following Chelsea’s poor run of form, Lampard has played down any speculation of pressure on his work.
The Blues have won just one out of their last six Premier League matches and have now fallen to the eighth position in the table.
However, considering their history of changing managers, the former Chelsea midfielder is not worried about the board placing pressure on his position.
