Man City vs Chelsea
Manchester City and Chelsea went head-to-head on Saturday afternoon.
A victory for the former would have seen them secure a third Premier League title in five years.
And things certainly appeared to be heading that way when Raheem Sterling fired a much-changed City side into the lead after 44 minutes.
Sergio Aguero then had the chance to double the Sky Blues’ advantage from the spot in first-half injury-time.
However, Aguero’s poor penalty was easily saved by Edouard Mendy:
Oh no, Sergio 😂
Aguero’s Panenka penalty does not go to plan…

Marcos Alonso on tough season
Chelsea then fought back in the second-half, eventually drawing level 63 minutes in via Hakim Ziyech.
And, right at the death, Marcos Alonso slotted home an injury-time winner to hand the Blues all three points, guiding them up to 3rd in the table.
After netting the decider on Saturday, Alonso has since opened up on the tough campaign he has endured with Chelsea.
This comes with the Spaniard having stood as a fringe player under Frank Lampard and, in recent weeks, having played 2nd fiddle to Ben Chilwell in Chelsea’s crucial Champions League games:
“I’m very happy, especially because it’s been a tough season.
“I do my best every time I play to put pressure on the manager and try to play more. That’s what I want and I think every time I play I’ve done well so that’s what I need to keep doing.
“With the goal, it was very emotional and I’m very happy for that.”
