Jose Mourinho was tactically astute in Chelsea's draw vs. Man City

Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

Premier League football has a surprisingly complex attitude toward the simple concept of solidly collecting points.

Arsenal have constantly been criticised in recent years for being tactically naïve, Liverpool were mocked when sloppy defensive work cost them last season's title, and Manchester City's apparent lack of professionalism is often cited as the reason for their occasional struggles.

Yet when Chelsea show tactical intelligence, defend well and conduct themselves professionally throughout...

Chelsea, Man City play for a draw that keeps both teams happy in title race

Saturday's draw wasn't fun for the fans but does help both teams stay in lockstep atop the Prem.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester City in the Premier League.

1. Title rivals share points

There were a reported 650 million people looking on from across the globe but planet Earth may not have been too impressed by an often-turgid encounter between English football's two best teams. Five points remains the gap between leaders Chelsea and Manchester City.

As expected, neither team was ready to bet the farm on the whole affair. Given that their need for victory...
