post-Chelsea match

, Gabriel Jesus insists the Citizens only wanted to ‘play good football and win’ and their three successive defeats to Chelsea last season did not dent the confidence of Pep Guardiola’s side.

The Brazilian forward said: 

“We know always because we lost the FA Cup semi-final to them at home, in the Premier League and in the Champions League final, that people think we are suffering because of that, but that’s just football.

“We just came here to try to play well, play good football and win, that’s all.”



also brought an end to Chelsea’s unbeaten Premier League as Jesus himself also revealed he feels in good form.

“I’m working hard so that when I get the chance I can play well and help my team-mates,”

 Jesus added.

“I’m very happy with this so far in this season for the team and for me. It’s important to keep going like this.”


On the other end, Toni Rudiger insisted the Blues deserved their defeat, but not for any tactical shortcomings.

“This performance in the first half doesn’t need any explanation because we were very bad, and for me I think over the whole game we didn’t produce,”

 Rudiger told 

Chelsea’s official club website


“At the end of the day against a team like them, you can’t do that.

“In the first half we defended well, but then they scored the goal. It was a deflection but they deserved it. Analysing and saying it was about tactics, it’s just not true.

“I think it’s just that we did not perform at our high level that we usually do, and we got punished for this. We just had a bad day at the office.”
