Manchester City 0  Chelsea 1 (03/02/2014)

The duo collide at the Etihad Stadium with the title fight very much in mind, as the hosts attempt to climb back to the top of the table, while the Blues will try to close the gap to leaders Arsenal down to two points.

Manuel Pellegrini's team have won every  domestic home game this term but will be wary of Chelsea who inflicted a 2-1 defeat on City when the sides last met back in October at Stamford Bridge.

With everyone predicting Chelsea to park the bus against city, after Mourinho selecting Luiz and Matic and leaving out Oscar for the game. There was a surprise surprise finish to the first half, with a completely dominating performance from Chelsea and a scorcher of a goal from Ivanovic. Leaving Manchester City trailing at home.

With second half proving all the more exciting and both teams having a numbers of attempts at the goals. Jose’s men hitting the woodwork three times and City’s last burst in the dying minutes all came to an end. And Ivanovic first half thumping strike proving to be the winner for Chelsea.

So it was Jose’s men that bring Man City to heel and ends Pellegrini’s home run. The title race is wide open now.
