Manchester City midfielder Rodri, has reacted to his club’s 4-4 draw against Chelsea, saying the Cityzens feel a bit exhausted.

Cole Palmer scored a stoppage-time penalty against his former club Manchester City to snatch a point for Chelsea in a pulsating, eight-goal Premier League thriller at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Rodri said: “We feel a bit exhausted, this type of game, we know how hard it is to come here. The team Chelsea has built, they have great players and they sign massive players.

“The level of the Chelsea team has risen and it was not our best performance today. Individually we needed to do a bit more ourselves – to concede four goals is not normal for us.

“We keep pushing and sometimes it is like this and you have to score at the other end. But we have to correct some mistakes.

“I think we played how they want. Quick transitions and they are a better team in that situation and they are faster and stronger we have another type of players and we try to play our game and I think we struggled.”

On mistakes: “We are a team and we support each other and we move forward.

“I think we were very close on winning this game but we have the feeling when we are not ourselves, but we know what we have to do and big credit to the opponent. They have big players.”
