Chelsea took the lead after Andre Schurrle scored his first goal for the club after converting a great ball across the goal by Torres. Right after setting up the goal, Torres hit the crossbar after dribbling past City defenders.
But, as the game went towards halftime, the momentum shifted to Manchester City's side. Four minutes into the second half, Aguero equalized after drilling Samir Nasri's through-ball into the top corner.

Chelsea took all 3 points and managed to go second on the table.
