Chelsea 0 – Manchester City 1
What a win for Man City. And what a result for Pep Guardiola, who has finally beaten Chelsea.
Prior to Saturday’s Premier League match at Stamford Bridge, Guardiola had four draws and three defeats in matches against Chelsea.
That all changed this weekend thanks to a brilliant goal from Kevin De Bruyne in the second half.
It was De Bruyne’s first of the season in the league, after he opened his account for the season against Shakthar in the Champions League.
Pep Guardiola after the Chelsea game
After the full time whistle blew, Pep Guardiola stepped out onto the pitch to congratulate his players.
It was a fantastic three points which could propel Pep to winning his first Premier League title with the Sky Blues.
Amid all the celebrations the Man City boss also made a beeline to speak to a couple of specific Chelsea players.
They were Cesc Fabregas and Pedro, who both played for Guardiola during his glory days at Barcelona.
It’s worth remembering the storm in teacup which resulted after the 2016 match between Chelsea and Man City.
After that game, Guardiola was accused of snubbed Cesc Fabregas in the post game hi-fives.
