‘No chance’ Loftus-Cheek leaves in January

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has warned his players against complacency

The Blues rebounded after suffering their first Premier League defeat of the year against Tottenham by defeating Fulham, 2-0, behind goals from Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

"I am very anxious but not for the result, for the fact that we did not react to the first goal of the opponent".

Jota's first Premier League goal followed in quick time as Joao Moutinho knocked Willian off the ball in the Chelsea half and spread the play to Matt Doherty, who delivered a perfectly-weighted cross to the back post for the Portuguese winger to slot home from six yards out.

"We had opportunities, but we missed them". Maybe it was for the result, but not for me. "We didn't react at all so I am really very anxious for this, not the result". "After the first [Wolves] goal - that was an accident because we were in full control of the match - we were suddenly another team, without the right distances, without our football".

Chelsea, who sit fourth, host leaders City on Saturday and Sarri was annoyed at their complacency. At the moment he's very important for us", Sarri told reporters ahead of Wednesday's trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers."He had some problems to understand what I wanted. "We were not the same team as before".

With Christmas on the horizon, we better get used to having Chelsea on our TV screens on multiple occasions in one week.

He said: "Manchester City are in another category".

"I don't know [whether we should have had a penalty]". We have to play and we have to fight to be in the top four, I think.

It's a free service to United Kingdom licence fee payers and will feature action from all 10 Premier League matches from last night and tonight. "It is a very hard result for the top four".
