Well got that wrong didnt I ? Don't get me wrong fair play to Man City. They worked hard and grounded out the result even though Shay Given's penalty save from Lampard's pen went along way to achieving the end result, we never took our chances and we did have some great chances!!

Lampard's pen was the main one. Lamps went for power which is different as he usually places his pens into the corners, but Given dived the right way and made the save. Ivanovic headed over from a corner, Drogba near the end of the game should of scored but shot wide and he also headed wide as we were chasing the game. There were times when City's marking and grappling JT and Drogba in the box should of been punished but on the flip side I guess it happens all the time.

But one thing remains for me and thats my issues with Deco. At times today he played the simple right ball, BUT time and time again he lost the ball, gave it away and let's face it he was bullied out of midfield. Carlo Ancelotti here is a message for you from me Chelseadaft. "TAKE DECO OUT OF THE SIDE FOR GOD SAKE AND PUT JOE COLE THERE". Even when Ancelotti made changes to the side he still kept Joe on the bench and bloody Deco stayed on!!!

We started with the same side as I predicted and started off quite well. We took the lead when a deflected shot from Ivanovic was saved on his line by Given, the ball bounced out to the edge of the box and Anelka hit it hard and low, Given got his hand to it, pushed it onto Adebayor's back and the ball rebounded off of him and into the net.. (shame that for Adebayor eh?)..

City got back into the game when a cross came over from our right hand side and Cech came out and clashed with I think it was Drogba and didn't get a clean punch to the ball. The ball comes out to SWP who drills the ball into the box (now here is the debatable point) the ball flies straight at Micah Richards who puts both arms up together and the ball hits his arms, then reflects off JT to Adebayor who slots it into the corner passed the diving Cech. Should it of been allowed? Not so sure. JT and Chelsea complained but the ref was having none of it.

Their second goal was a free kick from Tevez. Cech did an Almunia and took a step to his right and then the ball went to his left and he couldn't reach it and the ball went into the corner. JT wasn't happy with Cech and looked like he made his feelings known.

After this happened as we are chasing the game Ancelotti took off Carvalho for Belletti, Ballack was replaced by Mikel and then JT had to come off with a knock to his knee.. So Malouda came on. Ivanovic and Essien were at the back in the middle, with Belletti and Cole either side. Mikel was the holding midfielder with Malouda and Lampard either side and bloody Deco behind the front two. We tried to get the killer pass and the final ball and when we did we just couldn't put it in the net today.

Like I said though, City worked hard and pressed us, closed us down and De Jong was like a man possessed to the final whistle. Yes we lost, but based on the chances we had any honest City fan would say we possibly deserved a draw, but you still have to stick it in the net.

Its another away game and three points that has got away. GUTTED!
