Jianye then changed its formation to more aggressive 3-4-3 but failed to change the scoreline.”We havent seen such good play for a long time,” said Chen. “We deserve the win because the players are disciplined and committed.””If we keep up good work like todays, we will pull ourselves out of the low times,” he added.In the days other game, Chongqing Lifan held fourth-placed Shandong Luneng to a 1-1.Guangzhou R&F remains in first place with 16 points from six games, followed by Shanghai SIPG, Guangzhou Evergrande and Shandong Luneng, all with 13 points.PhotoChampions League: Dortmund loses; Real overpower BayernDybala nets 2 as Juve beats Barcelona 3-0 in Champs LeagueMourinho blasts brainless ShawGermany keep perfect record, England down LithuaniaChina can improve to keep World Cup dream alive, says LippiPodolski gets perfect send-off with winning goal for GermanyMost PopularHighlightsMessi gets 500th career goal for Barca in 3-2 win vs MadridMarbury splits from Beijing, looking for new club to play final seasonNadal closer to 10th Monte-Carlo Masters trophy, Djokovic shocked by GoffinWhats HotMessi gets 500th career goal for Barca in 3-2 win vs MadridSpecialCharting Xis efforts to turn Winter Olympics a successNBA all-star weekend: All you need to knowHow to be a Super Bowl fan for a dayRio 2016 Olympic GamesBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
