Pep Guardiola described Manchester City’s first Premier League defeat of the season as a “lesson” and feels his players must take on board the manner of the setback they suffered at Stamford Bridge if they are to not only retain their title but also win the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history.

People say Manchester City is favourite for the Champions League but this is the [level of the] Champions League – they [Chelsea] had one chance and scored one goal.

Goals from N’Golo Kanté and David Luiz were enough for Chelsea to beat City for the first time in four attempts and saw the visitors drop to second place following Liverpool’s 4-0 victory at Bournemouth earlier in the day.

“The first eight, 10 minutes of the second half they [Chelsea] were better than us, but after that and in the first half we were fantastic.

It’s a joy for me as a manager to watch my players,” Guardiola said.

“That is the level of the Champions League.

Speaking after this loss, which was not only City’s first of the campaign but also first in 22 league games stretching back to April, Guardiola was in typically effusive mood regarding the performance of his side, and in particular the manner in which they dominated the first half with characteristic aggression and panache.
