On Saturday afternoon, Manchester City and Chelsea were in Premier League action.
The two teams are championship rivals this season, thus despite the fact that it is still early in the season, Saturday’s matchup is expected to have an impact on the Premier League title fight in 2021-22.
At Stamford Bridge, the first 45 minutes were relatively uneventful. Man City dominated but failed to score with a single shot on goal.
The Sky Blues, on the other hand, did so in less than 10 minutes in the second 45.
Gabriel Jesus fired a shot through a crowded penalty area that Edouard Mendy didn’t see until it was too late, rendering the African helpless.
With three central midfielders and only two forwards in Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea started the game on the back foot.
However, after the goal, Tuchel decided to bring in Kai Havertz in an effort to inject some much-needed creativity.
The game was opened up a lot as a result of the adjustment, with both teams having numerous decent chances and Chelsea having a goal correctly ruled out for offside.
Manchester City creates history.
Man City, on the other hand, were able to come away with a crucial 1-0 victory, bringing them level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.
Following the match, it was announced that Manchester City had won back-to-back games at Stamford Bridge for the first time in Premier League history.
