Manchester City have extended their lead by 13 points thanks to a fine goal from Kevin De Bruyne against Chelsea.

The champions almost advanced in the fourth minute when Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga came running in his line to clear, hitting the ball against teammate Cesár Azpilicueta. Luckily for the visitors, the ball just came out of the corner.

Chelsea’s first dangerous attack came in the 10th minute when Romelu Lukaku looked as if he had slammed Hakim Ziyech after City’s defense, but the pass was too long and the offside flag was high.

John Stones then had a chance to lead Man City in the corner, but his effort was saved by Kepa.

Jack Grealish had a strong chance to score in the 39th minute when Kevin De Bruyne forced Mateoovavaic to throw the ball in the penalty area, but Kepa came out and made a good save to deny it.

Romelu Lukaku had Chelsea’s best chance of the game at the start of the second half when he was played by Kovačic, but Ederson saved with a strong hand.

The city thought he would be awarded a penalty in the 55th minute when Marcos Alonso brought down Raheem Sterling in the box, but the flag wanted to be offside to Kyle Walker.

The next chance came in the 68th minute when Phil Foden played Sterling in the bottom right, but the winger could pull his effort wide.

But success happened to City a few minutes later, when De Bruyne converted N’Golo Kanté’s challenge before bending a fine ball to Kepa from 20 yards.

Chelsea almost came back quickly, but Aymeric Laporte did well to block the effort of substitute Timo Werner on the other hand.

Phil Foden and Jack Grealish then had a chance to wrap it up at City, but Kepa was equal in both attempts.
