Chelsea 2 – Man City 0
Liverpool are clear at the top of the Premier League.
Chelsea became the first team to beat Man City in the league on Saturday with a 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge.
Maurizio Sarri’s side, who have been poor in recent weeks, beat the Sky Blues with goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz.
The result means that Liverpool, who beat Bournemouth 4-0, have 42 points on the board.
Man City have 41 points, while Chelsea (34) are fourth behind Tottenham (36).
Pep Guardiola trolled Man United
After the Chelsea match, Pep Guardiola trolled Man United in his post match presser.
The Man City boss stated his belief on which clubs can realistically win the title this year. He said:
We are in December. If you tell me Liverpool can win the Premier League I will say ‘yes.’ If you tell me Tottenham, Arsenal or Chelsea can, I will say ‘yes’.
Of course Guardiola never mentioned Man United as potential league winners.
Man United, after beating Fulham on Saturday, are sixth in the division, Jose Mourinho’s men have 26 points after 16 matches.

Pep Guardiola vs Chelsea coach
Many have paid attention to what happened between Pep Guardiola and a Chelsea coach after Saturday’s match.
Chelsea’s fitness coach, Paolo Bertelli, set off the Man City boss after the game.
As Guardiola went around shaking hands, the Man City manager reacted badly after interacting with Bertelli.
Did Bertelli say something to set Guardiola off?
Or was the Man City boss simply sour after his side’s first defeat of the season?
Pep Guardiola – one of the most unclassy managers, rubs well with their fans. Salty over the mighty Reds back on top of the league. pic.twitter.com/rcPSfaseQh
