Manchester City registered a spectacular 1-0 victory against reigning Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The scoreline may suggest otherwise but Manchester City earned a well-deserved win against Chelsea last night.  Kevin de Bruyne scored the only goal of the match after half time against his former club, a rising left-foot drive from outside the area.

That gifted Pep Guardiola’s men a solid victory, which also saw them catapult over Manchester United in the league table. City had to do without striker Sergio Aguero, who sustained rib injuries in a car crash but City coped with his absence splendidly.

City never looked in danger once De Bruyne scored and almost added a second when Gabriel Jesus’ volley was headed off the line by Antonio Rudiger. Besides the loss, Chelsea also received a setback with Alvaro Morata picking up an injury in the first half. THT takes a look at some of the best tweets regarding the match.

A lot was spoken about Eden Hazard. The player made a pretty strong comeback but fell flat against Manchester City, much to the ire of Blues fans.

If Chelsea fans were upset about the loss, Manchester City fans were elated with the result.
