Pep Guardiola explains Cesc Fabregas handshake snub

Pep Guardiola explains Cesc Fabregas handshake snub

It was just another amusing sidenote to Chelsea's 30-minute dismantling of Manchester City on Saturday early afternoon, as Pep Guardiola, after shaking hands with Antonio Conte and giving his former (adorable) player Pedro a hug, seemingly made it a point to ignore handshake offers from Gary Cahill, Willian, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Cesc Fabregas.  (And those were just the ones we saw on the TV footage!) The latter snub was especially surprising given the shared history between Cesc and Pep, though some sources, such as the mischievous Marca speculated afterwards that all was not well...

David Luiz, Diego Costa, Willian reflect on win and fracas against Man City, dealing with Chapecoense tragedy

At the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, Chelsea passed the toughest test of the season so far by beating Pep Guardiola's Manchester City 3-1, overcoming a 1-0 half-time lead by the Citizens on a Gary Cahill own goal. Chelsea's Brazilian core of David Luiz, Diego Costa and Willian made a huge contribution to the result, with the former giving a great performance in defence and the latter two scoring the team's first two goals in the game. At the end of the match, Argentinian striker Sergio Agüero made a criminal challenge on David. And it was not the first time he's done something of this sort...

Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard speak on Chelsea's performance against Manchester City

Without the assuring presence of Nemanja Matic, whose injury gave way to Cesc Fàbregas, next to N'Golo Kanté in the midfield, things didn't start well for Chelsea on Saturday against Manchester City. The Citizens' relentless pressure eventually made Chelsea break in the first half, an awful clearance from Gary Cahill giving the home team the lead on 41 minutes. The second half saw Chelsea turn our fortunes around once again, we grabbing three goals and all three points as City completely lost the plot. Afterwards, the once again stand-in captain for Chelsea, Gary Cahill spoke on Chelsea's...
