Chelsea football club played their 6th league game of the English Premiership campaign today against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City team at the Stamford Bridge with the bid to maintain their unbeaten run.
The result of the game was a bit disappointing as the host of the day suffered a 1-0 narrow defeat to the Cityzen which was their first of the season across all competitions.
The result means Pep Guardiola was able to get his first win against the German tactician after beating him three times in a row consequent to his arrival taking charge the helm of affairs for the Blues late January.
The first half of the game was such a balanced one between the two sides as there was nothing to separate them going into the half time break which ended goalless draw.
The tempo of the game got more tensed up in the second half as they both displayed some dazzling skills but none was able to break the deadlock until the 55th minute when Gabriel Jesus put the visitor ahead to make it one nil.
After every other attempts from both ends to add more to the tally of the game, all were not successful as it ended one nil at full time.
The only goal scored by the Brazilian international was enough to separate the two sides at full time and as such sealed the whole three points of the game for his side
The only goal conceded in the the game by Chelsea was their second of the season in 6 games played as they now currently sit at the 3rd spot with 13 points, and as such be hoping to be back to winning ways in their next fixture.
