35 mins – CHANCE!

City’s press is relentless and they find their way through Chelsea’s backline through Foden, whose mazy run results in a gorgeous low cross… but nobody in City blue is anywhere near and Alonso eases the pressure by winning a foul against Sterling.

33 mins – CLEAR!

City’s free-kick turns into a corner, but Chelsea deal with it well again. This time, it’s Rudiger rising highest to clear.

31 mins – YELLOW CARD!

Next in the book is Kovacic, whose late challenge on the advancing Silva is rightly punished with a yellow.


Tuchel is screaming at his defence to get further forwards when they clear the ball. At the minute, they’re just inviting pressure.

28 mins – WASTE!

Pulisic finds some space down the right and drives towards the byline, but he takes too many touches and allows City to retreat. He plays a one-two with Azpilicueta but is offside on the return.

25 mins – BLOCK!

Rodri’s cross isn’t dealt with by Azpilcueta and the ball ends up on the left with Cancelo, who fires a low cross into the feet of Rudiger to clear.


Now it’s Chelsea’s turn to come forwards. Ziyech gets some space down the left and fizzes in a low cross towards Lukaku, but City’s defenders deal with it well.

17 mins – CHALLENGE!

Alonso has been struggling with Sterling, but Sarr makes no mistake. He crunches the City winger in the box with a perfect challenge and gives away a corner, which City waste.

14 mins – SAVE!

City get a corner on their left and it’s Stones who rises highest to meet it, but he can only send his effort straight at Kepa, who clutches the ball gratefully.

14 mins – CLEARED!

Cancelo finds De Bruyne with an excellent pass down City’s left, but the Belgian’s cut-back only finds the retreating Alonso, who thumps the ball clear.

12 mins – CHANCE!

Chelsea get in behind City’s defend through Lukaku, but he makes one pass too many towards the offside Hakim Ziyech and stops the move dead.

De Bruyne’s free-kick comes into the box but Sarr deals with it well.

8 mins – YELLOW CARD!

Alonso gets the game’s first caution after dragging down Sterling out on the wing.


Chelsea clear the corner with ease, but City are coming straight back at them.

4 mins – NERVY KEPA!

A nervy moment for Kepa. Laporte’s long ball over the top drops just behind Chelsea’s defence, and the onrushing Kepa pings his clearance right off Azpilicueta and behind for a corner.

1 min – UNDERWAY!

Off and running at the Etihad – victory for City will surely end Chelsea’s faint hopes of winning the title.
