C'mon City lets keep up the good work.

Kompany wisely rested replaced by Laporte, Zinchenko back in otherwise no real change.

1 0 City

Absolutely no intent on attack from Chelsea, purely relying on counter attack on the very rare occasions a chance pops up.

Totally dominant City, just a worrying last 10 minutes with just a single goal advantage and tired legs from so many recent games.

Simply a magnificent display today, as is now the normal, well done City - players, management and all involved. Could there be a more dominant 1 0 win?

The final ball was lacking today but we played Chelsea off the park. Chelsea were made to look like they weren't trying. I assume that they were.

Chelsea had no ambition, but we cannot expect teams, even Chelsea to come and play expansively. As silvablue said, we were vulnerable to a sucker punch at 1-0. We didnt, job done. Will we ring the changes for Basel?

A few changes I think but we don't need to go mad as there is a decent break until Stoke and then two and a half weeks off!!

Our players deserve more praise from the media for the sheer work rate they put in every single game without fail.

It is phenomenal the way they press persistently other teams for the full 90 minutes.

Struggling to remember a City team that looked THAT comfortable against 'quality' opposition for the entire 90 minutes. Complete control of last year's champions!

Some superb, inventive passing at times (even if the final ball kept banging into the side of the Chelsea bus). A joy to watch.
