LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said he was “delighted” with his side’s performance despite a first Premier League defeat of the season in a 2-0 loss at Chelsea on Saturday.

City dominated possession early on at Stamford Bridge, but could not find a way through a well-organised Chelsea defence and were hit on the break just before halftime as N’Golo Kante netted Chelsea’s first shot at goal.

David Luiz’s header in the second half sealed City’s first Premier League defeat since April as they were knocked off the summit by unbeaten Liverpool.

“The way we played in the first half was incredible,” Guardiola said.

Despite having over 62 percent possession, City mustered just one shot on target before the interval, and were forced to chase the game in the second after Kante’s goal.

Guardiola, however, still liked what he saw, believing Chelsea simply took their chances at key moments.

“It’s not easy to win against Man City.”
