Pep Guardiola praises Chelsea boss Frank Lampard

Manchester City manager praised Frank Lampard as a courageous manager after Chelsea limited City to 46.7% possession, the lowest of the Catalan’s 381 top-flight matches as a manager. Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez on 29 and 37 minutes cancelled out N’Golo Kanté’s opener at the Etihad Stadium to lift the champions to third. “There is always one thing in your life that hasn’t happened,” he said. “It happened. So, OK, I have another record, I won one game without possession. They are an incredible team with Kanté, Kovacic, Jorginho, so it can happen. “We beat an incredible top side, Frank is a brave manager – courageous to play. Chelsea are an incredible team, we knew it but we beat them. It was a typical high-level game. Our back four played so good today. In the most difficult period of the game we scored on the counter. “We created enough chances to score more goals. We score a goal [equaliser] when they were better. Before the goal from them, the game was tight. Then we suffered, but the second half we were much better.” Source- The Guardian
