Manchester City vs Chelsea was the most awaited clash of this weekend's Premier League action - and the game did not disappoint in the slightest. The 4th placed Manchester City went toe-to-toe with the third-placed Chelsea, and the Cityzens just came out on top in a tightly contested game.
Chelsea started off the game as the stronger side, and they were rewarded for their brilliant play through a goal scored by N'Golo Kante. A few minutes later, it was the midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne who shot one from long distance, and it deflected off a Chelsea defender and ended up in the back of the net.
An individual piece of brilliance from Riyad Mahrez saw him score the goal that eventually prove to be the winner. Chelsea tried to get back in the match but could not score another goal. Raheem Sterling saw his goal being overruled by VAR, and the game ended 2-1 in favour of the home team, with City overtaking Chelsea in the league table.
Here are the hits and flops from this game, where several players impressed, and several were under par.
Hit: Kevin De Bruyne
After an average display at Anfield by his lofty standards, Kevin De Bruyne found his magical touch again against Chelsea. The midfielder was lively and at his creative best throughout the game, as he made 3 key passes and scored his team's equaliser from long distance.
The Belgian international gathered the ball and let it fly from outside the box, and goalkeeper Kepa could do nothing but watch the ball go past him into the back of his net. He had 80 touches of the ball in the game, and attempted 12 crosses which troubled the Chelsea defence. He will be hoping to build from this performance.
