Manchester City managed a rout of Chelsea
Manchester City managed a rout of Chelsea in the recent league meeting between the two teams.
The success achieved over the reigning Premier League is a sign of the supreme power within City, who managed to win the game 3-0. They go into the upcoming game against Everton at Goodison Park as the overwhelming favourites despite having seen Roberto Martinez’ team make a good start to the campaign. After a disappointing opening day draw against Watford, Everton went on to claim their first win of the season in emphatic manner after beating Southampton 3-0.
As result, they will be in buoyant mood ahead of a meeting with City. Martinez’ managed Everton has secured some impressive results against City in the past. This is one of the factors behind defender Bacary Sagna being wary of the blues. He says that City are completely beyond the win over Chelsea and are now entirely focusing on the upcoming opponents. After having taken two wins from the opening two games, City will look to maintain their perfect start to the campaign. The injury to regular right back Pablo Zabaleta is likely to see Sagna starting the game in his preferred position. The Frenchman has been linked with a move away from the Etihad stadium due to lack of first-team opportunities.
“We have to forget about Chelsea now – that game is in the past now and we need to set the same standards, pace and energy levels against Everton.We’ve started the season the way we wanted to do and we have some good momentum. It’s obviously important to win your opening games but it’s the way we’ve played that has been pleasing.We need to take things game by game and keep going by playing with the same style and confidence,” said Sagna ahead of the game.
