De Bruyne Stunner Sends Pep's City Top

English Premier League Report: Chelsea v Manchester City 30 September 2017

English Premier League

Report: Chelsea 0-1 Manchester City

Date: 30 September 2017

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League table after defeating champions Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Pep Guardiola's charges were springing forward with intensity in the opening minutes, threatening to find an early goal. 
 
Antonio Conte's troops were struggling to settle and find their rhythm after 20 minutes of play with City pressing them deep into their own half. 
 
The hosts suffered a blow as in the 35th minute Alvaro Morata was forced off the pitch with an injury and was replaced by Willian. 
 
Thibaut Courtois kept the Blues in game making a stunning save in the stroke of halftime to deny Fernandinho who had fired a powerful header at the near post. 
 
Kevin De Bruyne broke the deadlock in the 67th minute, collecting a return pass from Gabriel Jesus before unleashing an unerring left-footed finish from outside the area, 0-1.
 
City struggled for regular flow of clear-cut chances despite their superiority with the match stretching to the 80th minute. 
 
Conte's charges tried to comeback into the match but Pep Guardiola's troops were much quicker on the second balls and saw the result out. 
 
The result stretches City's winning run to eight matches in all competitions and they return to summit level on points with Manchester United.

Chelsea were made to look like an average club in their own back yard. For a moment I thought it was Huddersfield or Brighton playing(lol). Well, they would be greatful for the 1-0 defeat as it was not a true reflection of City's dominance. I think 3 or 4 goals were going to do justice for City's incredible performance.

Pep's team is a formidable force in the premier league this season (and in Europe also). They're up there at the top with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern, PSG, etc and they'll prove it in the Champions league.
