'We were not in our best shape today'


Manchester City midfielder Rodri, speaking to BBC Sport: "Yes we are [exhausted], incredible game and big credit to them I think they were superb and I don't think we were in our best shape today individually.

"Some mistakes we did. We are not used to conceding four, but on the other hand we never lost the face of the game and was very close to winning it."

On added time: "We scored late, but at the end football has changed. Eight minutes of added time is another 12 minutes so it is a massive far from what we are used to do.

"Even if you score in the 90th minute you have 10 more minutes we do not think much on that - but yes we were close."

On points dropped: "When you draw you keep adding points and for us if you give everything it is alright and I did not think we performed well.

"The team is exhausted and we committed mistakes with the ball, we were not clinical and because Chelsea have this type of player we played their game in transitions.

"Which they are better in them situations.

"I understand for the fans it is great. It is passionate football for the players, sometimes we suffered cause we score and then conceded - it is a bit crazy and not the type of game we like.

"You cannot choose it is, what it is. The focus at the minute was it is not our best performance but this team has it inside that it will never give up."
