MAN CITY VS CHELSEA FULL MATCH REPORT
All through the duration of the first half wasn’t good coming from both teams who couldn’t get things right as they struggled with controlling things which saw them managing to carry on until the end.
For Chelsea, it was one of their poorest performance this season as they were unorganized on the pitch which saw them being pressured badly against a side who they made life worst last campaign, but now it wasn’t looking good for them.
Man City continued to make sure everything was working out fine for them in terms of controlling how things played out which saw them dominating ball possession as they created more of the opportunities but failed to score from any as it progressed.
Kepa Arrizabalaga was put to the test as the match carried on which he was equal to the task as he made some amazing saves keeping the Blues in the game that was looking far from over in the 45 minutes which continued being a struggle.
The first half of the game entered in final stages and ended with Man City unable to score from all their attempts against Chelsea as they both headed inside for the break after 45 minutes of football played at the Etihad.
More problems for Thomas Tuchel with them entering the second half still unable to get a grip of things as the pressure remained on them which gave them more to worry about with no changes done by the manager despite how it was looking.
Man City pushed forward more exploring every possible way to score Chelsea who were just all over the place losing control of things anytime they got in contact with the ball which made it more difficult for them to make anything happen going forward.
The goal finally came in the 70th minute of the second half after another force of attack saw Kevin De Bruyne smashing one past Kepa Arrizabalaga with an assist from Joao Cancelo which made the scoreline 1-0 from an outstanding finish.
