Chelsea move a step closer to the title Chelsea killed off hopes of a late-season title race with an efficient 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.


Antonio Conte's side kept their seven-point advantage at the top of the Premier League thanks to two first-half goals from Eden Hazard. Sergio Aguero equalized for City but despite the visitors' dominance in possession, Chelsea rarely looked seriously stretched.

The home side were happy to let City have the majority of the ball but Conte's side are always looking to break at pace. Hazard was always eager to get involved and twice had Jesus Navas backpedalling down the left wing in the early exchanges.

The opening goal developed on the other side of the pitch, though. In the 10th minute, Cesc Azpilicueta ranged up field and exchanged passes with Pedro. Hazard had drifted across the face of the area unnoticed by all except Azpilicueta. The full-back rolled the ball to the winger and Hazard released a speculative shot that deflected off Vincent Kompany. The ball looked to have neither the pace nor the direction to beat Willy Caballero but inexplicably, the City goalkeeper failed to get behind the shot.

The equalizer, 16 minutes later, came from another goalkeeping error. Thibaut Courtois, under the most minimal pressure from Aguero, sent his clearance straight to David Sliva 25 yards from goal. The Chelsea goalkeeper did his best to make amends by saving the Silva's angled shot but the ball rebounded to Aguero near the penalty spot and the striker took the opportunity with relish.

Chelsea were back in the lead eight minutes later. Pedro had been a constant irritant to City. He caused panic with his running from deep and Fernandinho in particular struggled with his rival's pace. The City midfielder finally got near Pedro in the 18-yard box but got too close. Fernandinho clipped the Spain international as he twisted toward goal and referee Michael Dean pointed to the spot.

Hazard stepped up to take the penalty but produced another weak effort. Again, Caballero should have done better. The City goalkeeper made the save but pushed the ball back towards Hazard, who slotted home gratefully.

Kevin De Bruyne hit the bar in the early moments of the second half as City put the Chelsea goal under siege. Again, the visiting side dominated possession but created few clear-cut chances. John Stones had a free header from a corner but sent the ball straight at Courtois. The Chelsea goalkeeper made no mistake this time, getting his body squarely behind the ball.

No team in the Premier League is more disciplined than Conte's. As City pressed for an equalizer, the entire Chelsea XI were frequently within 20 yards of their own goal. They still broke with venom and Hazard fired over inside the area after one counterattack with 16 minutes left, but the home side were less inclined to leave space behind them as the minutes ticked down.

Stones missed a great chance in time added on for a corner but overall, Chelsea were troubled too rarely by City. Conte's team deserved the win and took another step towards the title.
