Chelsea and Manchester City clashed at Stamford Bridge a few days ago. This game took place at the Chelsea home ground, Stamford Bridge. The blues have won their last five matches at Stamford Bridge. Unfortunately, they were beaten by the current Premier League Champions.
Here are some of the reasons why Chelsea was beaten by Manchester City
1. Thomas Tuchel choice of players was wrong

They used 3.5.2 formation against Manchester City. Playing Manchester City with such formation is very wrong. Any team that wants to win against Manchester City should be playing an attacking football not defensive.
2. Absence of Mount and Pulisic
Christian Pulisic has helped Chelsea to beat Manchester City last two seasons, Chelsea plays without any attacking force. Mason Mount was also unavailable against Manchester City due to an injury. Mount has previously helped Chelsea to beat Manchester City in the UEFA champions league final last season. Therefore, if Pulisic and Mount could have played the game against Manchester City, Chelsea might have not lost the game.
3. Featuring Kovacic, Jorginho, and Kante
Featuring Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho, and N'golo Kante in the midfield at the same time is a wrong move made by the Chelsea coach because these three players mentioned above are playing the same pattern of football. It could have been better if he used N'golo Kante and Reuben Loftus Cheek. Kante plays deep in the middle while Cheek will attack as an attacking midfielder.
4. Lack of Natural wingers in Chelsea's squad
One of the mistakes that make Chelsea to lost the game against Machester City is that Chelsea has no natural wingers in their squad. Hakim Ziyech and Hudson Odoi are the only natural winger that was available for the match but they were not selected by the manager.
