Manchester City Defeat Chelsea 1-0, Strengthen Grip on EPL Top Spot

07 March 2018

Manchester City went an inch closer to the Premier League titlefollowing a 1-0 win over Chelsea at the Etihad on Sunday, March 4.

The west London side are facing an uphill struggled to try and get back into the top four this season, with the Blues now five points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with nine games left to play.

Chelsea were able to muster three shots in the second half after Bernardo Silva broke the deadlock a minute after the restart, but none of them were on target.

"We are not happy with that (but) it is not the day and the moment to question whether we are behind the boss or not".

"The effort of the players was an important effort. When you match quality and mentality you become unstoppable".

Ortega stops Edgar, Cyborg wins at UFC 222
The path to Ortega's victory in the featherweight bout started with this solid elbow to Edgar's temple in the first round. Unfortunately, it looks like Edgar has lost his title shot, and the last minute fill-in gamble didn't pay off for him.

"No way. Who could believe it?" There are nine games left, 27 points, and stuff can still change.

"When you play against a team that has shown to be stronger than you for a lot of the season - because 25 points is a big difference - you have to think with your brain and your head because otherwise you finish with a bad loss and that's not good for the players", Conte added. But we should have tried to do that all game.

Hazard will be hoping to help Chelsea FC return to winning ways on Saturday evening when the Blues host Crystal Palace in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.

The victories over Arsenal and Chelsea saw Stones miss out, but Guardiola, who admits he makes his decisions on a game by game basis, says all four defenders should expect to play.

Indeed, Leroy Sane got past several Chelsea players all too easily in the 20th minute to set up Bernardo Silva for a chance at goal although he could only fire his shot over the bar.

E-cigarettes contain cancer causing chemicals, recent research
It found that teenagers who smoke tobacco-based cigarettes have the highest levels of cancer- causing chemicals in their bodies. Vapors are high in demand, and they are alternatives for traditional smokers so their smoking habits can be reduced.

The German thought he had opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark when he caught Kevin De Bruyne's cross flush, but Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta bailed out his side with an excellent goal-line clearance.

"We didn't utilise the counter-attack as well as we could have done".

Thereafter, City were quite content to keep possession as Chelsea still refused to abandon their cautious approach.

"You've absolutely nowhere to go because you can't pass out because they're better than you".

One of the biggest complaints surrounding the result laid with the deployment of Eden Hazard in the false nine position.
