Chelsea beat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side to go third in the Premier league table.

The blues were at their absolute best as they made a comeback win against City, their Champions league finals opponent.

Chelsea’s win at the Etihad today meant that Manchester City’s title win will depend on the results from Manchester United’s game tomorrow.

Chelsea came into the game to as the underdogs, because of Manchester City’s wonderful record at home in the Premier league. Pep Guardiola’s side have not suffered many defeats at home so the odds were against Chelsea.

The game started with both teams looking to exploit each other’s weaknesses and stay compact in defence.

Chelsea had a little more possession than Manchester city did inside the first 15 minutes and Gilmour played a big role in that.

Both teams struggled to create chances after 20 minutes had gone because of how well drilled they both were.

Late in the first half, City found the breakthrough through Raheem Sterling’s good finish.

Few minutes later, Gilmour brought down Gabriel Jesus and a penalty was given to City. Aguero, trying a ‘Panenka penalty’ played the ball straight into Mendy’s hands to keep City just 1 goal ahead.

In the second half, Chelsea were more dominant and started creating chances after chances. Ziyech then got the equaliser for Chelsea via a fierce shot from the edge of the penalty area.

With just a minute to goal, Alonso then got the winner for Chelsea from a Timo Werner cutback. Chelsea had goals ruled out for offside in the second half but that did not stop them from taking the 3 points back to London.

Immediately after the game, Chelsea fans took to social media to praise wonderkid Billy Gilmour for his exquisite performance. Gilmour had a quiet first half but his influence grew in the second half. City midfielders could not get near him, even with foden on the pitch.

A Chelsea fan even called him a special talent. Here is what a few Chelsea fans had to say about Gimour’s performance…
