“Bit of disappointment” – Chelsea player not fully content after draw at Man City

One Chelsea player couldn’t hide his disappointment after Chelsea went to The Etihad Stadium last night and got a 1-1 draw.

Chelsea were actually 1-0 up against the league champions Manchester City until the 83rd minute of the game when a deflected Rodri shot found the back of Chelsea’s net.

The Blues could have scored more goals in the first half that might have actually put the game out of reach for Pep Guardiola’s side.

But in the second half they came at Chelsea with intensity and pinned them back for 45 minutes, with the goal inevitably arriving.

Raheem Sterling, who scored Chelsea’s goal, believes that Chelsea could have actually got the win and as a result, he is a bit disappointed.

‘I think in the end we can be pleased with a good point but I also think there’s a bit of disappointment not to win the game,’ said Sterling shortly after full-time as cited on the Chelsea website.

‘We had chances to finish the game off, although so did they in fairness, but we had some really good opportunities to seal the win.

‘The game plan was set by the manager and I think it worked really well. We caused City a lot of issues on the counter and created a number of chances.

‘Coming to the Etihad, we knew they would have a lot of the ball and would use it really well. We knew we would have difficult moments and we just had to stay with them, use our brains and opportunities would come in the transition.

‘That happened in both the first and second half and in the end, we’re a little disappointed not to leave with all three points.’

I think he is spot on here and this is a great attitude to show and good standards to set. We had chances, clear chances to score more goals and really, if we kept more attackers on the pitch, we would have had counter attacking chances to score more in the second half too.
