EPL: Defiant Chelsea Hands Manchester City First Defeat
Chelsea on Saturday beat Manchester City to see the defending champions suffer their first defeat of the season after 16 matches.
Goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz gave Chelsea a 2-0 victory and confirmed Liverpool at the top of the English Premier League table following a 4-0 emphatic win over Bournemouth earlier.
Maurizio Sarri's side bounced back from the disappointment of losing at Wolves in midweek to end City's 21-game unbeaten league run stretching back to April, and a sequence of 14 unbeaten games away from home.
City paid for a lack of ruthlessness as they dominated the first half completely, only to be struck by a Chelsea smash-and-grab right on half-time as N'Golo Kante fired high past Ederson from Eden Hazard's pass just before half time.
Chelsea gained confidence and momentum and improved after the break, securing the win with 12 minutes left when David Luiz's glancing header following a corner bounced in off the far post.
It is Sarri’s first triumph over Pep Guardiola and it was a sweet victory for Chelsea fans.
