Navas backs Manchester City to bounce back from Chelsea loss

The Spain international played 90 minutes in Monday's defeat, a result which ended a 12-game unbeaten run in the league, but is confident that the club will return to winning ways
Manchester City winger Jesus Navas has backed his side to recover from their 1-0 loss to Chelsea on Monday night.

Branislav Ivanovic's first-half strike was the difference between the two sides as the Blues ended City's 100 per cent league record at the Etihad Stadium and stopped them from scoring at home for the first time since November 2010.

But Navas insists that Manuel Pellegrini's men are not worried by their performance or that their dominant home form has come to a crashing end and the former Sevilla man predicts that City will return to top form sooner rather than later.

"We were on a really good dynamic run and we were expecting to win but it didn't happen," the Spaniard told reporters.

"But let's keep looking forward and winning more matches again. The team has the potential to go on another run like we have. We want to be in the first spot so we will keep working to get there.

"We usually play against great teams and we usually win but we are satisfied with the way we played against Chelsea and hopefully we can win the next games ahead.

"We are on the right track. When they scored it was hard for us but we worked well so we are not worried about it. The team worked until the end and had options. We could have won so we are not worried about this one loss."
