Chelsea Humiliated at Home by City
Manchester City stunned Chelsea at home 3-1 in their English Premier League Matchday 17. City produced a ruthless attacking display to ease past Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and increase the pressure on Blues manager Frank Lampard.
Manchester City was without a number of first-team players following an outbreak of coronavirus at the club. They, however, beat Frank Lampard’s side with three goals in the space of 16 first-half minutes.
German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan opened the scoring with a low strike finish to break the deadlock before Phil Foden doubled City’s lead three minutes later, tucking a superb first-time strike beyond Edouard Mendy after fine work from Kevin de Bruyne.
The Belgian then deservedly got his name on the scoresheet with a close-range finish after Raheem Sterling’s curling strike had rebounded off the woodwork.
Chelsea struggled to come back into the game but only managed to score one through Callum Hudson-Odoi second-half goal. The result moves Manchester City up to fifth place in the English Premier League table, four points off Liverpool and Manchester United, and with a game in hand on both their rivals.
Chelsea on the other hand is now in the eight place position with Frank Lampard facing sack. They have failed to win their last three games, they lose to Arsenal 3-1, and now 3-1 to Manchester City.
