Chelsea 0 - 1 Manchester City: Kevin De Bruyne Catapults Man City To Top After An Excellent Performance

English Premier League champions, Chelsea hosted this season's favorite at Stamford bridge today and City shows their class to claim 1 - 0 win.

Kevin de Bruyne scored an excellent winner as Manchester City beat Chelsea to go back to the top of the Premier League.

Without injured striker Sergio Aguero, who broke a rib in a car crash on Thursday - were the better side against the champions. To make matters worse for Chelsea, top scorer Alvaro Morata limped off with an injury in the first half.

The visitors who have only dropped two points in seven games - could have led when Fernandinho's header forced a good save Thibaut Courtois. The only goal came when De Bruyne - a former Chelsea player - played a one-two with Gabriel Jesus before smashing in a fantastic shot from 25 yards out.

Jesus almost scored a second for City when his volley from Raheem Sterling's cross was headed off the line by Antonio Rudiger. City - who are top on goal difference - had briefly been overtaken by Manchester United, who beat Crystal Palace 4-0 earlier on Saturday.
