'We were outstanding except for five-eight minutes': Pep Guardiola rues Manchester City's luck at Chelsea as they suffer first league loss of seasonManchester City were beaten 2-0 at Chelsea in the league on Saturday night N'Golo Kante and David Luiz scored the goals for the hosts at Stamford Bridge  The defeat saw City's unbeaten league run this season come to an end 

Manchester City, the team that had seemed unbeatable, were knocked off the top of the Premier League on Saturday after Chelsea stunned the champions at Stamford Bridge.

N'Golo Kante fired Chelsea in front just before half-time and David Luiz doubled their lead midway through the second period.

The result left Liverpool a point clear at the top - they won 4-0 at Bournemouth earlier in the day - and left Pep Guardiola's shellshocked side nursing the scars from a first league defeat of the season.

A disappointed Guardiola said: 'We played better than other days when we have won. Everyone wants to beat us.'

It was a famous win for Chelsea which fires them right back into the hunt following Wednesday's sorry setback at Wolves and defeat a fortnight ago at Tottenham. Maurizio Sarri's men now trail Liverpool by eight points.

'We keep fighting with our feet on the ground,' said man of the match Luiz, the architect of the first goal and scorer of the second.

'It was a great game. We were playing against the best team in the world. We had a lot of humility and tried to take our chances. And the plan came off.

'We are always trying to improve and have had some poor results.'

It was Kante who had shot Chelsea in front in the 45th minute, answering criticism from his manager that he needs to score more goals.

Kante, on target for the first time since their opening-day win at Huddersfield four months ago, said: 'I am happy to get on the score sheet. The most important thing is to give my best on the pitch.' A below-par City, who looked short of ideas without top scorer Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne, can have few complaints.

But Guardiola said: 'The way we played in the first half was incredible. They had minimum chances and scored, and in the second half we were there until the end. We were outstanding except for five-eight minutes.'
