Report: Man City 1-3 Chelsea – 03/12/16

REPORT

Chelsea’s eighth successive Premier League win cemented their place at the top of the table – but the game ended in chaos as Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho were sent off in injury time.

Antonio Conte’s side delivered a statement of intent as they effectively caught City on the break after going behind to Gary Cahill’s own goal on the stroke of half-time, when he diverted Jesus Navas’ cross beyond keeper Thibaut Courtois.

The game turned on Kevin de Bruyne’s 56th-minute miss with the Blues in control, crashing Navas’ cross against the bar from inside the six-yard box.

Chelsea were level on the hour when Diego Costa outmuscled Nicolas Otamendi to score and then went ahead 10 minutes later when substitute Willian raced clear to beat Claudio Bravo with ease.

Eden Hazard completed an important win for Chelsea with another goal on the break, showing too much pace for Aleksandar Kolarov to wrap up three vital points.
