HALF TIME! CHELSEA AND CITY DRAW 0-0!
It’s the break at Stamford Bridge! Chelsea and Manchester City drew 0-0! It is a shock that lacks a lot of opportunities in this first period. Chelsea were suffocated by pressure from the City midfielder and Jesus missed the only clear chance of the match.
The opportunity for Jesus!
When he enters the area, Foden finds Jesus on the penalty spot! The Brazilian controls his chest before moving to his left foot. It’s out of frame!
The Chelsea midfielder deprived of balls
Chelsea midfielders have a hard time showing up! Thomas Tuchel was having a great game – if anything the pouring rain seemed to be spurring him on!
City keeps up the pressure
Chelsea are once again upset by City’s very high block that controls the ball without difficulty. Centers and corners multiply in front of Mendy’s cage!
Rodri’s strike was deflected!
Found at the entrance of the area by Grealish, Rodri triggers a deflected attack by Rudiger.
De Bruyne is panicking
With a targeted control, Kevin De Bruyne played Rudiger before hitting hard with his left foot. The Christensen collection.
Thiago Silva enters
Injured, Reece James has to resign in the first period. It is the former Parisian Thiago Silva who takes his place. Azpilicueta will move to the right.
Reece James complains about the ankle
Right at the start of the match, James complained again about his foot. Chalobah and Thiago Silva warm up. Who will return?
De Bruyne takes a corner from Manchester City. Alonso takes a corner kick! New attempt by the Belgian that forces Mendy to get out of fists!
Chelsea lobs the ball high into the air
Chelsea have a goal chance at the opponent’s area The ball goes off bounds by large !! The pressure from the citizens is impressive and Grealish forces Azpilicueta’s long game. The balloon is back in town!
There are no opportunities yet
The start of the match is rather rhythmic, but there was not a single clear opportunity. The defenses are in place and the attackers are too harmless.
Chelsea comes with an action
Finally, Chelsea find themselves in the rival zone with a depth capture from Werner. The German center is strong towards Lukaku, which is missing its recovery.
Chelsea are suffocated
Chelsea’s rises failed and Jesus made remarkable defensive efforts. Guardiola’s laundry works perfectly!
Reece James stays on the ground
Great duel between Grealish and James, the two English internationals. Chelsea complain about the ankle …
Chelsea let the Sky Blues do it
Possession is only for Manchester City and the Chelsea Blues let it go. For now, anyway. Corner to follow for Citizens!
It is already a good center of Jesus
The city game is well set up and Jesus is on the right. He crosses strongly at the penalty spot and Azpilicueta has to clear his head in a disaster!
