What you need to know:

  • A game of few chances was brought to life by the Belgian 20 minutes from time as he curled home the only goal from outside the box to seal a 12th consecutive league win for the champions
  • City dominated possession but struggled to open up a makeshift Chelsea defence featuring second-choice goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and Malang Sarr
  • Chelsea were unable to offer any response as they chased City shadows and could have lost by a more comprehensive scoreline
