Manchester City 1 Chelsea 0: Bernardo Silva Scores As Pep Guardiola’s Men Defeat Tame Champions

It was the Premier League champions against the champions-elect. Manchester City, though 25 points ahead of Chelsea with nine to play, pretty much embarrassed them.This was pitiful and meek, a major embarrassment for a club with Chelsea’s clout. The Blues produced a surprisingly negative display and failed to have a shot on target in the match as Bernardo Silva’s goal less than a minute into the second half sealed the game and pushed Manchester City closer to the Premier League title.Pep Guardiola’s side were forced to bide their time before making the breakthrough on Sunday and it came when Bernardo Silva stole in ahead of Marcos Alonso from David Silva’s cross to beat Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and give City a mammoth 18-point lead at the top of the table.Chelsea did not register a single shot on target, leaving Manchester City keeper Ederson a virtual bystander as he was even able to watch Alonso’s timid shot drift wide with seconds left.It was a disappointing day for Chelsea and manager Conte – and of even greater concern is that they are now five points adrift of Tottenham in fourth place in the race for spots in next season’s Champions League.Photo Credit: Getty
