Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has criticised Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s tactics in the 1-1 draw between the two sides on Sunday, saying Chelsea played like a ‘small team’. City boss compared the match to City’s recent home defeat by Stoke City.
As Quoted on ESPN website, he said: I think we played a very small team trying to defend, trying to keep 10 players in front of their goal and [City were] a team that wanted to win from the beginning.
“We had two or three clear chances to score at the start of the second half and after with 10 players, we continued trying to win. I am satisfied with the performance of my team but “I am not satisfied with the score line”.
“I think we played against exactly the same team we played against Stoke here. It will be very difficult for us to score. Finally we could score.”
Jose Mourinho responded angrily to those comments.
The Chelsea manager told reporters: “Many times he says he doesn’t speak about me or my team but he continues to do so. If Man city won the match he won’t be saying this. Don’t ask me about these words.”
The two sides are expected to be the main contenders for this year’s league title, and the draw leaves Chelsea three points clear at the top of the table after five games.
