Bacary Sagna eyes Chelsea scalp to heal Bayern Munich loss

Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna urges his teammates to respond to their Bayern Munich loss by beating Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday.

Bacary Sagna has rallied his Manchester City teammates to bounce back from their Bayern Munich defeat by beating Chelsea on Sunday.

Jerome Boateng netted a stoppage-time winner as City got their Champions League campaign off to a losing start at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

The reigning Premier League champions host this season's pace setters Chelsea at Eastlands on Sunday, and Sagna says that victory would provide a much-needed tonic.

"We kept working really hard until the end and it was a goal at the end but we had chances as well," he told the club's official website.

"We played against great players, one of the best teams in Europe but we defended as a team.

"We need to think about Chelsea now as we have a very difficult game on Sunday."

Sunday's encounter is scheduled to get underway at 4pm.
