Manchester City 3-0 Chelsea: Pathetic Chelsea self destruct at the Etihad [Match report]

Look away Chelsea fans, this doesn't come interesting, everything went wrong on the night as Manchester City ran out 3:0 winners at the Etihad stadium, off field issues seem to have caught up with Jose Mourinho and his men as they lost their map, head and mojo in a game they conceded from the blast of the whistle.

John Terry was shipped off at halftime and you wonder why he started, Diego Costa concentrated more on complaints than the actual reasons he was on the team sheet, Ivanovic seems to be past his best as we've seen in recent games and many more.

Sergio Aguero could have opened the scoring in the opening minute had Asmir Begovich not been alert to stretch a leg out to stop his effort, Begovic wasn't done however has he was on hand to thwart the Argentine three more pin point times, his 22nd minute save drew claps from Aguero himself but he could only do little when Aguero was ready beat him, Yaya Toure picked him out in the box and he took it up from there, the little man turned inside Gary Cahill before sliding past Begovich ahead of John Terry's dash.

Eden Hazard lingered when he needed to shoot, Ramires waited for City defenders to recover when he had Joe Hart in sight and Diego Costa overplayed his antics upfront, that summed up Chelsea's night as the first half wears out.

Cahill and Costa needed medical attention at different times as blood stains forced them both to finish the half in stitches and whistles of Dr Carneiro won't go away, Costa however needed to be shielded and guarded as he again involved himself in tunnel brawl.

The second half started as the first ended, City probing and probing, Raheem Sterling keep reminding the blues how tired their right back is and Silva was having a day to remember at the Etihad, Chelsea could have equalized in the 70th minute as Diego Costa turned Kompany and lost his footing but the ball found reigning EPL MVP Eden Hazard who dummies Mangala before seeing his effort saved by Joe Hart, goal mouth scrambles followed but the ball managed to stay out.

It went from bad to worse for Chelsea in the 79th minute when Vincent Kompany headed home off a David Silva corner, Ivanovic again was susceptible as he allowed Kompany acres of space to beat Begovic. Two became three in quick fashion 6 minutes later when Toure again found Fernandinho who fired past the Bosnian in Chelsea goal from just outside the box.

The champions were beaten black and blue and lie joint 16th on the league table, equaling Jose Mourinho's worst result in his Stamford Bridge reign.
