Here are Chelsea vs Manchester City Premier League highlights.
Chelsea defeated Manchester City 2-1 at home last night with Christian Pulisic scoring for the Blues. The first 30 minutes of the game was dominated by the visitors but second-placed Manchester City could not open their scoring despite being ahead in the ball possession statistics. Soon after, a bad mixup in the midfield led Chelsea to capitalize on the opportunity and put themselves ahead with Christian Pulisic’s 36th-minute goal. The United States international latched on to the loose ball and calmly put the ball into the bottom right corner of the visitors’ goal with his right footed shot from outside the box. The goal, which was Pulisic’s 7th goal in Premier League this season, helped the home side take a lead before half time.

Manchester City were able to equalize the scoreline in the second half of the game with Kevin De Bruyne 58th minute free-kick. It was a set piece situation due to a foul by N’Golo Kante towards Riyad Mahrez in the attacking half of the field. Kevin De Bruyne’s right-footed shot hit the top left corner of the home team’s goal making the scoreline 1-1. City nearly took the lead just a few minutes but Raheem Sterling failed to capitalize on his team’s counterattack as his right footed shot from outside the box hit the left post. Pulisic also failed to score as his effort was saved brilliantly by Kyle Walker. Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson saved a number of attempts from Chelsea in the later minutes of the game to keep the scoreline intact.
In the 75th minute of the game, a penalty was conceded by Manchester City player Fernandinho for a handball in the penalty area. VAR thus awarded a penalty kick to the home side. Chelsea took the lead as Willian successfully converted the spot-kick with his right footed shot to the top left corner of the goal in the 78th minute. Meanwhile, Fernandinho was sent off for diverting a goal-bound shot away from the goal with his hands. Reduced to 10 men, City failed to come back into the game after that.
