Bernardo Silva condemns Chelsea to the third away defeat in a row with a goal at 48′ at Etihad Stadium today.
Manchester City won 1-0 summing up other 3 points and reaching 78 in the table: Pep Guardiola‘s guys are now 4 wins closer to their Premier League title, maintaining 18 points on the second placed team, in this moment Liverpool (60) , since Manchester United ( 59) have got a game in hand ( tomorrow night against Crystal Palace).
Chelsea, on the other hand, remain 5th in the table with 53 points, 5 less than Spurs ( 4th with 58) and now their chances to qualify for next Champions League are even more feeble.
The game, actually, wasn’t spectacular, with City trying to create dangerous chances but not succeeding and Chelsea waiting to counter-attack.
Bernando Silva went close to score a couple of times also in the first half, but his efforts weren’t successful.
He was awarded in the beginning of the second half, when Gundogan and Agüero showed their class in a terrific play, Christensen wasn’t good in clearance and David Silva put in a cross that the Portuguese was ready to take for a tap-in.
Chelsea didn’t have the strength to react and so they came back to London, again, with 0 points.
