Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino praised the “world’s best league” after Cole Palmer’s last-second chance made the 4–4 draw between Chelsea and Manchester City even more exciting.
Chelsea and City played one of the most famous Premier League games ever. The game at Stamford Bridge was tense and full of surprises.
City lost the lead three times, and Chelsea lost the lead once, giving Chelsea forward Palmer the chance to have the last word against his old team. This is a great example of why the Premier League has so many fans around the world.
Guardiola couldn’t hide his happiness after City opened up a one-point lead over second-placed Liverpool after the game, even though his team missed a chance to go three points ahead of Liverpool at the top.
“Had fun?” The City manager said, “It was a good sign for the Premier League and a fun game.”
“The game was close. I believe it was a fair review at this time. Both groups tried to win.
“After our 4-3 goal, we didn’t make the best choices.” I can’t remember the last time we had that many chances at Stamford Bridge in a long time. They did too.
Guardiola said that the eight-goal thriller was exciting, and Pochettino, the boss of Chelsea, agreed.
“We were in it to win and be the heroes of the game.” “Today’s game proves that the Premier League is the best in the world,” he said.
Erling Haaland’s spot kick put City ahead, but Thiago Silva’s header tied the game for Chelsea.
In a very exciting first half, Raheem Sterling put Chelsea ahead against his old team, but Manuel Akanji scored at the end to tie the game.
It never stopped getting exciting, and Haaland scored again soon after halftime, but Nicolas Jackson tied the game for the Blues.
Rodri’s goal in the 86th minute looked like it would have won it for City, but Palmer scored from the penalty spot after Ruben Dias fouled Armando Broja, which was a surprise move by Guardiola in September.
“The tools are here”
When asked if he felt bad about how careless City’s defence was, Guardiola said, “If you think we are going to come here and win 7-0, you are wrong.” We came close, and maybe we didn’t do everything exactly at times, but Chelsea has nothing to lose.
“We won the league and moved on to the next round of the Champions League.” At times when we might be a little too soft, we’re the exact opposite.”
Pochettino stomped onto the field to scold referee Anthony Taylor for getting angry right before his team was about to attack. The game was still being talked about after the final whistle.
Pochettino also forgot to shake hands with Guardiola after the game. He said sorry for both his rant at the judge and his lack of respect for Guardiola.
“Right now, I think we can score the fifth when we go through.” I asked Anthony, “What’s going on? Why are you stopping now?” I broke the rule. I am sorry, because that picture does not reflect well on me or sport. Pochettino said, “I’m sorry to Pep too.”
He also said, “It’s not a problem.” Pochettino was the last one to do it. The end of the game makes people feel some things. Everything is fine.”
After getting off to a slow start, Pochettino was proud of his young team’s showing against last season’s treble winners. It showed that his effect is starting to be felt.
“I’m very proud. The players should be praised. “They played great against the best team in the world,” he said.
It makes you feel better about yourself. It showed how we thought and who we were. We have what we need to play against these kinds of teams.
