Manchester City last failed to score at home in 2010 and last defeat at home came in 2012.
Jose Mourinho brought a magnificent display out of his Chelsea side to bag a 1-0 away win at the Etihad.
Branislav Ivanovic scored the winning goal in the first half, in a match where Chelsea dominated.
Twitter was shocked at the result and offered some interesting viewpoints:
61 – Manchester City’s run of scoring in consecutive PL home games ends at 61, five short of Man Utd’s record. Halt.

Suddenly City’s +40 goal difference worth about as much as your nan’s Royal Wedding Commemorative dinner plate.

Jose Mourinho is still the special one.

Counter-attacking master class from Chelsea. Mourinho’s tactics were superb. That’s why he’s the best manager in the league.

Saw a team reborn tonight. Immense. Controlling. Special. Chelsea re-cast in the image of Jose, Mk 2. This could be one hell of a side.

Chelsea with 6 shots on target, hit the woodwork 3 times. Won convincingly too. Media before the game: ‘ Chelsea to park the bus’.
