Riyad Mahrez grabbed the only goal of the game at Stamford Bridge against Graham Potter’s men, who practically controlled the whole game but managed to let City run away with all three points.

The young Chelsea team suffered a narrow loss to Man City, as Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic both were injured in the game.

Chelsea had a disappointing evening as Manchester City, who won at Stamford Bridge, closed the gap to Premier League leaders Arsenal.

But then, below are the eight things we discovered following Man City narrow win over the Blues.

 Manchester City is just the second team, following Bolton Wanderers from 1958 to 1960, to defeat Chelsea four times in a row while also maintaining a clean sheet each time.

– In all competitions, Chelsea has gone 408 minutes against Manchester City without scoring.

– Since the first game of this run on October 19th, no team has won fewer games in the Premier League than Graham Potter’s team, who have won just one of their previous eight games (D3 L4).

– Riyad Mahrez has the most Premier League goals scored as a substitute since joining Man City in 2018 compared to any other player (9). Just 3 minutes and 43 seconds after Jack Grealish and him were substituted in, he scored his goal.Eight things we learned from Man City narrow victory over Chelsea

– In the last three games, Jack Grealish has tallied three Premier League assists for Manchester City, matching the number of assists he had in the club’s first 34 games.

– In the Premier League, only Pep Guardiola has – defeated each of Chelsea’s last five managers:

✅ Antonio Conte
✅ Maurizio Sarri
✅ Frank Lampard
✅ Thomas Tuchel
? Graham Potter

Chelsea had two injury worries during the game and was forced to make substitutions.

5′ Sterling ? Aubameyang
22′ Pulisic ? Chukwuemeka

Since Watford’s substitution of two starters against Crystal Palace in 2016, this is the quickest that a team has had to do so in the Premier League.

Arsenal and Manchester City are now separated by 5 points, while Chelsea is now in 10th place after losing 6 of its first 17 games.
