Full Time - Chelsea 2-0 Manchester City
Chelsea end Manchester City's unbeaten run with a defiant win at Stamford Bridge under the floodlights and send Liverpool top of the league.
In the first 30 minutes Manchester City dominated, exploiting Alonso with Sterling and Mahrez down the right wing creating multiple chances in the box, but they were unable to convert due to resolute defending from Chelsea. After this, Chelsea began to hold the ball more and move it, allowing Willian to find space down the left wing. A deflection turned it to Alonso who passed it off to Hazard. Hazard then held it long enough for Kante to run into the box and belt it into the roof of the net on the brink of half-time.
After the break, Chelsea continued to press but were unable to convert with a series of tame shots easily saved by Ederson. City also had some good opportunities but Luiz and Rudiger time and time again managed to head it out.
Then in the 78th minute, Chelsea earned a corner, whipped into the near post for David Luiz to head it over the top of Ederson and go in off the crossbar, causing Stamford Bridge to go wild.
Chelsea were then serenaded by excellent home support as they survived a few late scares from defensive errors, allowing them to defeat Manchester City and be the first team to keep a clean sheet against them in over a season.
