Man City player ratings, Six Sports

Here we have with us the Man City player ratings after a 1-0 win against Chelsea. City increased their lead at the top after defeating Chelsea. This must have been very difficult to take for Chelsea. The Blues might have looked at this match as the turning point of their season but that was not the case.

Manchester City looks very strong at the top and have the odds on their side to win the Premier League. Although the scoreline seems small, they did dominate a game against Chelsea. The Blues has had a very good defensive career under Tuchel but that was taken a different route.

City got the lead in the 70th minute as De Bruyne shrugged off N’Golo Kante and burst into the area to score the winner from outside the box. The Belgian was once again the savior for City as he changed the result of a match that was on its way to being a draw. De Bruyne has done this before for City against Chelsea and has repeated himself after a stunning performance.

City now sits at top of the table with no serious threat and can look to rest their players for important games. This might increase their chances of a good Champions League campaign again. However, they must be careful and must not let the dominant lead slip away.
