Goals from N'Golo Kante and David Luiz in either halves of the clash helped Chelsea seal a famous victory over Pep Guardiola's side. The result is very hard for this, because I know in every match you have to gain points.

This defeat sees Manchester City slip up to Liverpool, who now sit a point ahead of the Cityzens after their victory earlier today against Bournemouth. "The target is to play good in the next game".

The Belgium worldwide set up both Chelsea goals to take his assists tally in the Premier League this season to eight, more than anyone else in the division.

The first goal had a touch of fortune about it as Salah followed up Roberto Firmino's dipping shot to fire in the rebound, though TV replays suggested he was marginally offside. The Egyptian stayed on his feet under a challenge from Steve Cook before drilling home in style, before netting three minutes into the second half.

Aboubakar Kamara's penalty pulled a goal back for Fulham, but any hope of a fightback from the visitors was ended by a red card for Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Marcus Rashford added a fourth for the hosts.

Although he had hoped to return in time for either the Bournemouth or Watford games, City have made a decision to ensure he returns when he is fully fit, and that means he will miss Saturday's clash with his former club Chelsea.

Beaten by Wolves last time out, Chelsea were a different team altogether and from their first corner, on 78 minutes, Luiz headed home the second goal. But last season Kevin had the ball. and got the goal.
