Deschamps: Man City have shown Marseille how to beat Chelsea

Didier Deschamps reckons Manchester City have shown his Marseille team how to beat Chelsea.

The France legend has studied tapes of Saturday's clash and plans to copy City boss Roberto Mancini's tactics in tonight's Champions League clash.

Deschamps said: "City did a lot of good things against Chelsea at the weekend and though I don't have the same players at my disposal, there are many things we can try to copy.

"Like City, we will look to close the space, impose ourselves physically and hit them on the counter-attack.

"Chelsea are the favourites to win and, on paper, they are a better side than Marseille.

"But we are not coming here just to admire their play and cannot settle for staying back. We must look to play our game and create problems."
