FA Cup: Why Chelsea lost 4-0 to Man City – Potter

Chelsea boss Graham Potter explained the reasons for their 4-0 loss to Manchester City in the FA Cup on Sunday.

This is the second consecutive defeat for the Premier League champion in four days.

The Blues lost 1-0 to City at Stamford Bridge in the league.

However, further back at Al Ittihad, Potter’s men were beaten thanks to goals from Riyad Mahrez (2), Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez.

“It was the first 20 minutes in a cage and we couldn’t attack the defensive line well enough.

“I think Man City are doing really well in terms of preventing you from doing that. At the same time, we struggled.

“It was a great first goal in terms of a free-kick, a strange penalty and you’re stuck in a position where you’re 2-0 and you have to chase the ball against Manchester City. You’re stuck between trying to get more guys on and not being open to other people,” Potter said. .

Chelsea’s next match will be the London derby against Fulham in the Premier League on Thursday.
