Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin Debruyne were on the score sheet as Manchester City heaped more misery on Frank Lampard and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday night in the premier league.
With two games in hand, Manchester City moved within four points of log leaders Liverpool after beating Chelsea 3-1, showing all the signs that one would expect from a team that wants to wrestle the title from the defending champions.
Manchester City were missing a few names due to coronavirus after Kyle Walker, Ferran Torres and three other unnamed players tested positive but it was clear that Ederson, City’s ever present goalkeeper was one of them after being left out completely, handing Zack Steffen his first premier league start.
Starting on the left wing, Oleksandr Zinchenko got the nod to start on the left in place of Benjamin Mendy and he got the ball to Foden on the edge of the box who poked the ball on to Gundogan, The midfielder let the ball slide through his legs as he turned and launched it into the net.
"I'll be the first to look at myself today but I know where we're at and I know what it takes to churn out the level that City were at today. It's normal that we take knocks but now is a test."
