When Frank Lampard scored yesterday I will be honest, I didn't know how to feel despite being against us to make it 1-1. Of course I was disappointed that we conceded a sloppy goal that cost us two points, and if it was anyone else I would feel like I normally do when goals go in against Chelsea.
It's pretty much what you expect from Manuel Pellegrini now isn't it. When things don't go his way he spits his dummy out of his pram and has a pop at people. His post match comments after yesterdays 1-1 draw typify exactly that.
City have now failed to win their last FOUR games in all competitions.
Chelsea took a point from the Etihad this afternoon as a late strike from Frank Lampard (of all people!) levelled the scores after Andre Schurrle had given Chelsea the lead. On the whole, a draw is the right result.
It was always going to be a tight, tense game with the stakes being so high, despite it being this early in the season.
It's arguably, the biggest game of our season and at this early stage, Chelsea have a chance to move eight points clear of our title rivals. In order for that to happen, battles need to be won both on and off of the pitch!
It's games such as the one this afternoon where Jose Mourinho comes to the fore.
Beaten twice, home and away last season, Manchester City know they are in for a battle in arguably the biggest game of the season! How on earth do they stop Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard?
For the first time this season there was a full schedule of academy football with games played at U18', U19's and U21's levels. As always there was plenty of goals and good football and on the whole good results all round.
The week started off last Saturday with the U18's taking on London rivals West Ham at Chelsea's Cobham training ground.
It's the truth! Chelsea's performance last night was not good enough, not what we expect and once again our defensive frailties this season so far have come to fruition! You MUST win your home games in this competition.
I think we are all getting carried away with our potency up front at the moment and that's understandable based on the struggles of last season.
Chelsea open their Champions League campaign this evening against the German side Schalke and as we know in this competition, you MUST start well and win your home games. Can Chelsea deliver the right result?
We have made a great start in the Premier League by winning our first four games and hopefully we can take that form into the game this evening.

Chelsea currently have 26 players out on loan this season and many disagree or criticise our policy. Ron Gourlay has defended the clubs stance and I wonder what YOU the Chelsea fan thinks of it.
Much has been said of Cesc Fabregas and his return to the Premier League with Chelsea. With six assists already in four games, he is getting the plaudits for his role in our attacking third but the defensive side of his game on Saturday has been picked apart on SkySports' Monday Night Football by Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.
According to a reports, Chelsea have made their move to commit Eden Hazard to Stamford Bridge by offering a new five-year contract at a reported £200,000 per week with additional performance related bonuses!
It's a massive amount of money, a ridiculous amount of money but is what it is going to take to get Eden Hazard to remain a Chelsea player.
Over £835 million was spent on transfers this summer, making every Guinness world record book obsolete. (Don't even bother trying to get a refund. It's a waste of time) The most eye-catching transfer was Angel Di Maria's move to Manchester United for what some economists have described as "quite a lot of money", or in layman's terms "£59.
