Kevin de Bruyne was the man who condemned Chelsea to the second season defeat tonight.
The Belgian was the match-winner with an amazing shot half-way in the second part.
Citizens deserved the three points, having tried harder than Chelsea to reach them, especially in the second halfhalf, where Conte’s team was literally outplayed.
The Blues lost Morata, who was repacled by Willian and missed a chance to score after a few minutes, in the middle of the first half – probably a hamstring injury- and, apart of a couple of chances, never gave the impression they could overcome City.
If Chelsea didn’t suffer a worse defeat it is mostly thanks to his defenders, who were under pressure the entire game and only surrended to. De Bruyne’s amazing goal.
Eden Hazard was probably Chelsea most dangerous man, with a couple of chances saved by City’s keeper Ederson, but it seemed too lonely in the middle of the attack, especially after Morata left the pitch.
Willian, Fabregas and Bakayoko’s performances were heavily disappointing, with Kante who couldn’t do his usual job in the midfield, having been left alone.
Man City are now top of the table again with 19 points, along with Manchester United who won 4-0 over Crystal Palace today, while Chelsea sit fourth with 13. Spurs are third with 14,having beat Huddersfield Town 4-0 this afternoon.
