Chelsea 2-0 Manchester City: Goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz stun Premier League champions at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea became the first team to beat Manchester City in the Premier League since April after a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool remained top of the Premier League after their earlier win over Bournemouth as Pep Guardiola’s plans for an unbeaten league season fell apart.

N’Golo Kante produced an emphatic finish at the end of the first half to stun a City side who had been dominant all evening.

And, as the champions pushed for an equaliser, Eden Hazard’s in-swinging corner was nodded home by another unlikely scorer with David Luiz wheeling away in celebration.

City started the game strongly and had 60% of the ball after the first half an hour.

However, Kepa Arrizabalaga was left with very little to do in goal for the hosts as Bernado Silva alternated with Raheem Sterling in the false nine role.

The Brazil international was superb on the night and will have been relieved to see City line up without a striker.

Barely put a foot wrong all night and took his goal exceptionally well.

Moment of the match

Eden Hazard appeared to have a quiet game in midfield, but still managed to grab two assists.

His pass to Kante for the opener was so well timed and perfectly weighted the World Cup winner just had to put his shot on target to leave Ederson helpless.
