Premier League 2018-19
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Kick off: 8.30 am, 8th December
Manchester City suffered their first defeat of the season against Chelsea on Saturday, falling behind in second place behind new leader Liverpool.
Pep Guardiola's team dominated Stamford Bridge for the majority of the first half, but were amazed just before the break when N & # 39; Golo Kante broke out in the opening game of Eden Hazard.
David Luiz doubled Chelsea's 78th-minute advantage, securing a win that kept Chelsea in goal difference over Arsenal, but Liverpool inadvertently helped them win the title.

Well, it's fair to say that Pep Guardiola saw the coming …
A reminder of what Man City coach said in his interview before the game:
"It will be another big challenge for us, how will they react after the loss, I can imagine how intense and dedicated they will be."
"I've been to Stamford Bridge many times and won once last season, and I always lose there.
"They are a good team, a really good team, and if you see the XI and the people on the bench, they are a real contender."

"They are a very good team, we suffered together and then we did not give up and scored the two goals and we are happy with the win.
"The most important thing is to do my best in the field, I'm glad to be on the score sheet."
