Johnny On The Spot: Another cruel defeat. Jose Mourinho's magnanimous statement of having beaten the best team in England said it all. said it all. His relief at his side's taking of Manchester City's now massive scalp was self evident as The Manchester Blues contrived to throw away more points on the road with another desperate defensive howler, this time at the death...That's 3 defeats in 9 games for City now, all away, and all down to ridiculous errors that have let the shrewd Manuel Pellegrini down badly. In the process, some tremendous hard work has been undone...Cardiff and Aston Villa couldn't believe their good fortune and neither now can Chelsea as Joe Hart decided to come for a late long punt and terribly exposed Matija Nastasic. Game over. The rumours on the continent of Iker Casillas heading north will only intensify...City had outpassed Chelsea again on their own turf to the tune of 478 to 396 and ridden out erratic Howard Webb officiating which had endured heavily in Mourinho's favour despite the protestations that belied the Portuguese big head's desperation....Pellegrini had opted to flood midfield for this one in preference to going after Chelsea's ageing backbone in the style that destroyed the rags. This drew criticism across Planet Blue, but the job, clearly to secure a point was done and dusted. Did The Engineer fail to play to City's strengths with so many players in great form in front of a backline prone to mistakes? Only time and a wide open table will tell, but most certainly more slip ups like this cannot be shipped. There is a lot more hard work to do now to make up that ground on Arsenal.

Manuel Pellegrini: "The way we lost the game was incredible. I think Chelsea, Cardiff and Aston Villa did not have chances during the games, but we conceded stupid goals...If you want to fight for the Premier League, we must erase these problems...The team is playing well. We had absolute control of the second half. We had two or three chances, we had no problems playing away. The first half was not bad, Chelsea had one chance and scored, and a shot outside the box which hit the crossbar. It was a very equal game, in the first half also."

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho: "We had that little bit of luck you need to win these matches. Fernando believed until the last moment. We won a game which was very important for us. We beat maybe the best team in the Premier League. Everything happened for Torres after he missed an easy chance. After that, we saw the best Fernando....He worked unbelievably for the team. The second goal was a 'believe goal'...I am happy with our character, and the little bit of luck. I think there are five or six fantastic teams who will fight for the Premier League. They are the best team, very dangerous and physical....When you beat maybe the best team, it gives you positive feelings. I hope they do not misunderstand what I did by jumping into the crowd. My son was just behind the dugout. I had my feeling to go for the kid. It was not a lack of respect, it was just emotion. I did not run to the corner, I ran there."

"Little bit of luck" that's one way of putting it I suppose, more like we gift wrapped three points with yet another individual error.
