  • Liverpool go top of Premier League as Manchester City suffer first loss

Chelsea on Saturday, December 8, defeated high-flying Manchester City 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to keep their title hopes alive.

Pedro of Chelsea holds off Leroy Sane of Manchester City during the FA Community Shield between Manchester City and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on August 5, 2018 in London, England.

Television footage appeared to show spectators in the front row at Stamford Bridge berating the City winger, prompting allegations that some of the words were racially motivated.

It was a return to winning form for Chelsea after the first serious questions had been asked of new manager Maurizio Sarri.He said the change of emphasis from a possession-based game to a counter- attacking style had been key against City.

In the embargoed portion of his pre-Chelsea press conference, Guardiola revealed that KDB will be back in training in one week or so, while Aguero will also be back soon - although Guardiola's wording was quite confusing. And when Hazard was finally fed the ball to feet inside the City box, his pass picked out Kante, who side-footed the ball high past Ederson. Game over. Today we missed it a little bit.

The team is averaging exactly three goals per game and has conceded only seven. Suddenly, the home fans believed that their side could pull this off.

Salah made the game safe by showing determination to stay on his feet despite being fouled before finding the bottom corner early in the second half.

Swept along by a newfound wave of optimism, there was a sense of inevitability about their second goal, which came from another unlikely source. "Now we have to find this kind of motivation and need to play with this level of determination and aggression in other matches". "I said many times, I'd like to have Kevin available, but we try to not put pressure on one player and instead on everyone involved to make a good team".

The visit of last-placed Fulham allowed Manchester United to end a four-match winless run as Jose Mourinho's side claimed a 4-1 victory.

Chelsea now sit fourth on the Premier League standings with 34 points, eight behind leaders Liverpool and seven behind Man City who dropped to second.

Sarri sprang a surprise by deploying Eden Hazard as a false nine from the start for the first time this season and, after struggling to get the ball as City pressed in the opening stages, the Belgian's influence grew and he ended the night with assists on both of Chelsea's goals.

And they should be grateful for that.
