Liverpool the big winners as Manchester City are beaten at Chelsea

Chelsea 2 – Manchester City 0

The unbeaten Manchester City run is over!

Chelsea have taken down Pep Guardiola’s side at Stamford Bridge in one of the big Premier League results of the season.

Goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz did the damage for Chelsea, who picked themselves up from defeat at Wolves in midweek to beat the champions.

Eden Hazard set up both goals for Chelsea.

The Belgian set up N’Golo Kante for the strike that put Chelsea 1-0 up just before half-time. And, David Luiz headed home a Hazard corner with just over ten minutes to go.

Chelsea’s win over Manchester City not without controversy

There is little doubt that Chelsea rode their luck in the first half against Manchester City.

The N’Golo Kante goal was their first on target in the whole match and it came after City had spurned some good opportunities.

The second half was much more controlled from Chelsea, who more than played their part and restricted a Manchester City side that finally looked like missing Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne.

The second goal came from a Luiz header from a Hazard corner that appeared to be a Chelsea shot that did not deflect off any of the defenders.

Pep Guardiola made this point to the fourth official once Luiz had scored.

A huge win for Liverpool!

The big winners were undoubtedly Liverpool, even though this win helps Chelsea’s hopes of finishing in the top four.

Liverpool beat Bournemouth 4-0 thanks to a Mo Salah hat-trick earlier in the day.

Liverpool are now the only unbeaten team in the Premier League and this win means they are top of the table.

After Manchester City’s past season and their incredible displays this campaign, well done Liverpool for going top in December!

What a campaign we have to enjoy now…
