94' PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! That is all the action (if you can call it that) from the Etihad. One step closer to the Premier League title. Bernardo Silva's strike was all it took for the Cityzens to put the game to bed against an uninspired and insipid Chelsea side.

I'm signing off before I doze off. 

This is Shambhu Ajith, you can find me on twitter- @goddamnhunter

Arrivederci!
...
93' Probably the best chance of the game for Chelsea. And that comes in the 94th minute. Alonso goes for it first-time on the full and smashes it wide off the mark. No shots on target for Chelsea.
...
92' Substitution for Manchester City.

David Silva out. Phil Foden in.


...
92' Sane blasts one high and over the crossbar and into the stand. It's raining cats and dogs here.
...
91' 4 minutes added on. Drinkwater takes his frustration out on Walker as he shoves him to the ground.
...
91' No teeth, no grit, no sharpness. This is exactly the opposite of what I expected this match to be.
...
Substitution for Chelsea.

Hazard out. Morata in. 
...
88' Morata is all set to come on.
...
88' Emerson shoves Kyle Walker to the ground and gifts City a freekick in their defensive half.
...
87' Eden Hazard makes news! He's flagged offside!
...
86' Substitution for Manchester City.

Zinchenko off. Danilo on.
...
85' Chelsea are yet to register a shot on target. Yes, it has been as bad as it sounds.
...
84' Substitution for Manchester City.

Aguero off. Gabriel Jesus on.
...
83' Chelsea just can't seem to whip up any sort of inspiration and this is so dull and drab. If you don't see any further updates, that's because Im snoring off in office.
...
81' Substitution for Chelsea

Pedro off. Emerson on.

Morata goes back to get his jacket once again and asks 'What's happening(perhaps?)?' He looked all set to come on.
...
80' Pedro wins a corner from the left flank after Chelsea break on a not-so-promising counter-attack. Marcos Alonso's subsequent corner is absolute garbage. So so short of quality, this Chelsea performance.
...
79' De Bruyne has the chance to set Aguero up for a second City goal but his pass is uncharacteristically heavy and that comes to nothing.
...
78' Pedro has been so terrible in the second half. Some really awful passing has killed two of Chelsea's counter-attacks.
...
77' Substitution for Chelsea. Willian is off and in comes... na na na Giroud... FINALLY.
...
77' Sane with a brilliant turn and a cross into the area but no one is there at the end of it.
...
75' There's so much strolling about happening I'm starting to think this is a retirement home recreation park. Sigh.
...
73' It's same old same old, lads. I'm starting to feel like a robot. I already sound like one.
...
72' Hazard has been given zilch to work with all evening. Chelsea's best player on the pitch, playing too far upfront to make any sortof impact while Pedro and Willian are having shockers.
...
71' It is too easy in the middle of the park for City as they switch from wing to wing to find a way past the Chelsea backline that now consists of close to 9 men. That's a difficult task but there's always scope for adventure.
...
70' The City press has worked well once again. Chelsea do not know what press is.
