Gary Neville Doubles Down On His Criticism Of Antonio Conte's Chelsea Tactics

Arsenal players who need to be replaced in the summer

The west London side are facing an uphill struggled to try and get back into the top four this season, with the Blues now five points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with nine games left to play.

Pep Guardiola's side produced a authoritative display as their efforts thwarted the reigning Premier League champions, with the west London club having failed to register a single shot on target throughout the entire match.

Striker Giroud said: "I don't even question myself about that - it is not a crisis".

Keeping either player beyond their current deals will prove even more hard if Chelsea fail to qualify for next season's Champions League and the Blues are now five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur. "Today they showed the difference between them and us in this moment". "I never spoke we have to win the two games to achieve something".

City, the Premier League's champion-in-waiting, had Chelsea beaten before a ball was even kicked.

They remain alive in this season's competition but must find a way past Barcelona at the Nou Camp next week to reach the quarter-finals.

Chelsea FC won the Premier League last term but did not have the distraction on any European football. After, at the end, we will see. We are going to play to win the game.

"They were getting absolutely hammered, they were getting passed off the park, they weren't getting close and they weren't laying a glove but with 20 minutes to go, I'm thinking, you know what, there are plenty of teams doing this and then they have a dig for 20 minutes at the end because they've held off and City do tire a bit towards the end".

"We need to win to have more freedom on the pitch and we need to stay together because it is a bad period but all the players, staff and fans need to know that we are all together". "If I remember well, two days ago, Arsenal played twice against them and you criticized [Arsene] Wenger a lot because they conceded three goals in only 30 minutes".

Sky television pundit Jamie Redknapp, the former Liverpool and England midfielder, was scathing in his assessment of Conte's tactics.

Alonso said: "I think it's an attitude problem and we have to make things clearer and improve quickly because we have nine matches left and we want to be in the top four".

"At half-time it was 0-0".
