Manchester city who had suffered a defeat in the hands of liverpool in their last premier league encounter came into the game with Chelsea seeking for a win to make up for the lost. Frank lampard have since revitalized Chelsea ever since taking up as manager, with his young Chelsea team, he has been able to put Chelsea back into the top four. Playing against Manchester city away was another tough task. The game which end 2-1 in favour of Manchester city was another tough match as Manchester city came from behind to win the match. Chelsea put on an impressive display at the Eithad and always looked dangerous in the attack when going forward.
Chelsea were rewarded for their hard work when Ngolo Kante gave them the lead in the 21 minute of the game after slotting the ball pass Ederson into an empty net to give Chelsea the lead.. Chelsea who were the better team enjoyed more possession in the game and were disappointed not to have come out with all 3 points. Debruyne scored an equalizer to cancel out Ngolo Kante opener and Level the game when his shot was deflected into the net by Christian Pulisic who send Chelsea keeper the wrong way. Moment later, Ryan Mahrez who replace Bernado Silva in the starting line up scored the winning goal in the 37 minutes after darting pass Chelsea Emerson and Mateo Kovacic in the box to power a Left footed shot pass Chelsea goal keeper into the net to give city a 2-1 lead.
There were some injury concern for Manchester city in the game when two of their finest players were withdrawn Midway in the second half. David Silva was taken off and replaced by Gundogan after which Sergio Augero was seen limping on the pitch in what was seen to be a mascular problem and had to be replaced with Gabriel Jesus. And Gaurdiola is quoted by the mirror as suggesting Sergio Augero picked up a bad muscular problem.
Sterling who was quiet all through the game scored a late goal in the second half to make it 3-1 , but it was ruled out by Var for a marginal of being offside.
Manchester city defence have been a major concern this season and have been guilty of conceding goals. Against liverpool, their defense fragility was exposed as they conceded three goals….. Heading into the game with Chelsea, they were without their star man Bernado Silva, who is serving a one match Ban handed to him by FA for bridging their rule.
The win over Chelsea saw them leapfrog Chelsea and climb to third in the table while Chelsea drop to fourth following their defeat at Eithad.
