Chelsea were well-beaten by Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening as Pep Guardiola’s side came out 3-1 winners in west London.

Ilkay Gundogan gave City the lead in the 18th minute as he curled it past Edouard Mendy from the edge of the area. 

Phil Foden doubled the lead in the 21st minute with a neat finish at the near post before Kevin De Bruyne finished of a City counter in the 34th minute.

Callum Hudson-Odoi scored in second-half stoppage time for Chelsea, firing Kai Havertz’s cross beyond Premier League debutant Zack Steffen.

The pressure piles on Frank Lampard and Chelsea as the Blues sit in eighth and have just one win in their previous six league outings. 

The result lifts City up to fifth in the table, four points off Liverpool and Manchester United, and with a game in hand on both their rivals.
