An awesome night for the Blues Chelsea fans and players and manager who have beaten Manchester City, the Premier League champions, after they scored twice at home, Stamford Bridge, in a weird match that Chelsea were lucky not to concede in the first half and the first goal on target was a goal.
However, in the second half, the team improved and deserved the win and dominated the match and had several shots on target and one of them was a goal by the Brazilian defender, David Luiz.
The team had a lot of wrong passes that stopped the team from the counter-attack sometimes, but Manchester City didn’t take advantage of Chelsea’s bad moments in the first half and Chelsea improved their performance between the two halves.
