- Manchester City record a decisive 1-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge
- Gabriel Jesus got the solitary goal of the game as Pep Guardiola got a major win over Thomas Tuchel
Gabriel Jesus was on target as Manchester City got a decisive 1-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
City dominated the ball from the kick-off but the Chelsea defence was so strong that Édouard Mendy was hardly tested on his return from injury.
The hosts showed some attacking threat around the quarter-hour mark, with a last-ditch intervention from João Cancelo thwarting Romelu Lukaku in the box.
Pep Guardiola’s side kept pushing and had their efforts repaid in the second half when Gabriel Jesus carved out a chance for himself with neat footwork in the box before squeezing his effort through the crowd and into the bottom corner, via a deflection off Jorginho.
City almost had a second with Jack Grealish being denied by a brilliant Mendy save shortly before Jesus’ attempt was cleared off the line by Thiago Silva.
City held to pick three vital points and end a a run of three consecutive losses against the Londoners.
Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel’s side have now lost their unbeaten record in all competitions this season.
