As Manchester City won an impressive 3-1 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne each claimed a goal and an assist.
With a great turn and shot from Foden’s pass on 18 minutes, Ilkay Gundogan opened Man City’s account.
From De Bruyne’s low cross, Foden’s precise finish doubled their tally three minutes later.
With a third on 34 minutes, De Bruyne then put the visitors firmly in charge, responding fastest to slot into the net after Raheem Sterling’s initial shot had cannoned off the far post.
Zack Steffen made a smart save to keep out Cesar Azpilicueta’s header, making his Premier League debut for the visitors, but Chelsea failed to build clear-cut openings. It could have been worse for the hosts as Edouard Mendy saved Rodrigo’s header before Callum Hudson-Odoi netted a stoppage-time consolation from Kai Havertz’s center for the Blues.
Man City now have 29 points and step up to sixth, four points off leaders Liverpool and with a match in hand. With 26 points, Chelsea fell to eighth.
