Man City midfielder David Silva: Chelsea clash a tactical battle

Manchester City midfielder David Silva expects a tactical battle for today's clash with Chelsea.

City were beaten 2-0 at Stamford Bridge by Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea.

Silva said, "We controlled the first half, created chances but didn't score. Then, with the first chance they scored. That's part of football and that can happen. We learnt the lesson.

"In the second half, they defended very well and they had very dangerous players in the counterattacks, so we weren't able to draw the game.

"They like to play from the build-up. They are well-ordered. The games against them are very tactical I'm sure it's going to be like that. Hopefully, we will manage to impose our style over theirs."
