Chelsea winger Willian says his team can be pleased with their performance at the Etihad on Saturday, despite a 2-1 defeat to the defending champions Manchester City.

Chelsea came into the game in a rich vein of form with eight wins on the bounce in the Premier League.

They took an early lead through Ngolo Kante, but were pegged back by goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.

Despite the loss, Willian says that his team have plenty of positives to take from the performance and believes that Chelsea deserved more from the game.

“It was a great game. Before we conceded a goal we were in total control of the game. We were confident and I thought we played well the whole game.

“We created some chances and we could've scored 2 or 3 goals but we know it is always difficult to play here against City.

“Kante played well. He was in control in midfield with Jorginho and (Mateo) Kovacic. They all played well and I think we deserved a better result but City have a very strong team. Now we need to carry on and forget this game and move on to the next one.”
