The Blues inflicted Manchester City’s first defeat of the season in a compelling contest at Stamford Bridge as the hosts absorbed repeated pressure from Pep Guardiola’s men before earning a 2-0 win.

N’Golo Kante gave Chelsea the lead on the stroke of halftime scoring with the Blues’ first shot of the game, and David Luiz headed in a second 12 minutes from time.

City had been unbeaten in 21 games since April’s defeat in the Manchester derby, and now sit a point behind Liverpool.
