Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insisted he had been proved right in dismissing any idea the champions would go the campaign unbeaten after a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea saw them lose for the first time in the Premier League this season and top spot to Liverpool.
However, Guardiola still took pride in City's performance and urged his side to usurp Jurgen Klopp's men, who took a one-point lead in the title race with a 4-0 win at Bournemouth earlier on Saturday.
"I said that is not going to happen. We are not here to be invincible, we are here to be champions," Guardiola said. "It's part of the competition. You can lose, but it is how you lose."
