    True but as they’re top of the League and current European Champions it appears to be working for them.

    To be fair to them, they have kept City's number of shots down and they have a threat if they properly execute a ball over the top or Lukaku and Werner get a link-up right.

    Chelsea have enough defensive prowess to shut down the top sides in the League this season if we use that 45 minutes and our match against them as recent evidence, plus have enough attacking output to beat teams you'd expect to finish outside the Top Four.

    If I were a Chelsea fan I'd probably want a bit more "bravery" in a match like this and the extent to which they lost the plot (half-time helped their heads) against us in the seconds/minutes after the red card throws up a question mark about their mentality against adversity, but so far, so good for them.

    The bastich.

    H/T Chelsea 0-0 City
    City with all of the ball but creating little.
    City 6 attempts 0 on target while Chelsea’s solitary effort also failed to test the keeper.

    H/T Utd 0-0 Villa
    Not seen any of this one but Utd appear to be on top with 60% possession producing 15 attempts 2 on target while Villa’s single effort on target came from their 4 efforts at goal.

    Aye it's not the best. Still - no matter what happens in this game we can find a positive spin on it provided we navigate the Banana-skin later.

    Chelsea 0-1 City
    Deflected Jesus turn and shot gives City a deserved lead. Chelsea have to come out now, it’s been like watching paint dry.
