Chelsea lose to Manchester city
Former Chelsea player comes back to haunt Chelsea at Stamford bridge.
Manchester city returns to the top of the EPL table after defeating chelsea with Kevin Debruyne’s lone goal.
The Etihad outfit were in control of the game from start to finish, pressing with high intensity as Antonio Conte opted for a more defensive approach.
City who were without Aguero started Gabriel Jesus upfront and he was the one who assisted the only goal in the match.
Chelsea lost star striker Morata also just 10 minuted before half time and Conte opted for Willian off the bench and making Hazard the top striker.
Chelsea’s defence really had a tough time containing all city’s attackers, especially Christensen and Rudiger who did just well, the latter who cleared a ball just off the line in the closing state.
Conte pulled Hazard and Bakayoko in the closing stage to bring in Pedro and Batshuayi, but didn’t materialise into a goal, Chelsea stay 4th with 6 points adrift the Manchester clubs.
