Manchester City manipulates the European champions and achieves a precious victory in the English Premier League
Manchester City bared its teeth and spoiled Chelsea's successful start in the English Premier League this season by defeating it 1-0 today, Saturday, in the sixth stage of the competition.
Manchester City, led by Spanish coach Josep Guardiola, avenged their defeat against Chelsea in the Champions League final, and scored a valuable victory against them today, with a clean goal, at their home in Stamford Bridge.
Today's match was the first between the two teams since they met in the Champions League final on May 29, when Chelsea won the match 1-0 to deny Manchester City the European title for the first time in its history.
Manchester City deprived rival Chelsea of being at the top of the English Premier League table, as Chelsea's balance froze at 13 points, with a goal difference only behind Manchester City and Liverpool.
The two teams presented a fast and strong match, and Manchester City was clearly the best, as it completely dominated the game in the first half and was the best in the second half, despite the relatively improved level of Chelsea.
The first half ended in a goalless tie, while Manchester City won the match in his favor in the second half with a clean goal scored by Brazilian Gabriel Jesus in the 53rd minute.
