Chelsea hero Frank Leboeuf, has claimed that the Blues should have gotten a win against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Chelsea had taken the lead through Raheem Sterling in the first-half, and had a number of chances to double the lead, but for some poor decisions.

Leboeuf has hailed the likes of Axel Disasi and Malo Gusto for a fine show, but also revealed his disappointment at Gusto for not squaring a ball to Jackson to score.

Reflecting on his old club’s point at the Etihad, Leboeuf told ESPN: “I wasn’t expecting that performance.

“Axel Disasi was absolutely fantastic as was Malo Gusto on the right side. Ben Chilwell in the second half was also very good.

“What about Nicolas Jackson in the first half. He had two chances. It’s sad Malo Gusto doesn’t give him the ball in the first half because Chelsea could have been leading 2-0 at half-time.

“It’s the thing I’m most surprised about in that game because I wasn’t expecting Chelsea at that level.

“Yes, Man City were not that good, compared to what they can offer. But a big part is because of the tactics Chelsea made, how they played and the quality they used on the ball.

“Chelsea did very well and looked like a team who could make the top four. It is too late now of course but they are building something good. It’s going the right way.”

Although Chelsea did well against Manchester City, the big task will be to beat Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final this weekend.
