Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan: 'Not always good to win title early'

10. Sergio Aguero Chelsea's Performance at Man City Labelled a 'Crime Against Football' By Redknapp
| 06 March, 2018, 03:15

Five points separates Chelsea, last season's title winners, from fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with the pair still to meet at Stamford Bridge on April 1.

The January signing from Arsenal, who appeared as a second-half substitute, said: "It is not a good weekend for us because our opponents in the Champions League race won".

Gundogan has experienced something similar before when he helped Borussia Dortmund win their domestic title in 2011/12.

There were passages where they barely made an effort to win the ball back from City. Obviously we want to win it and if we do, when that happens is not really in our hands, but you need rhythm, and to always play seriously.

"I think if you ask the players, the players neither".

The 27-year-old did not have a shot and looked frustrated as he failed to have any impact in the game in a false nine role, with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud both left on the bench. If you are able to win the league quite early, you can lose that seriousness for the Champions League, maybe. Here are four of the key things we discovered in the match.


Redknapp said that Chelsea's limp, toothless performance was a "crime against football" while Gary Neville offered similarly withering words, blasting the champions as "woeful and embarrassing" before stating they were acting like "mannequins".

The 25th victory of City's stellar season leaves Pep Guardiola needing just four more victories to dethrone Chelsea and claim a maiden title in English football.

"But when you concede a goal just after half-time, it kills your goal a little bit". In fact, former Borussia Dortmund star Ilkay Gundogan went to break records for touches, passes and successful passes finding his teammates a massive 174 times. "I try to wait because the (Morata) substitution was with (Eden) Hazard and you hope until the end that a player like Hazard can invent something in the game", added Conte.

"We are not happy with that (but) it is not the day and the moment to question whether we are behind the boss or not. We did not play a good game collectively, but we are going to work hard to do better next week".

"I think that we must have a big regret for the defeats against Bournemouth, Watford and United, but I don't think today because I think we played against a strong team", he said. "We were better with the ball, but we needed to do that during the whole match".
